  • Even in his youth he was nothing
    Kept his body clean going nowhere
    Daddy was ashamed he was nothing
    Smears the family name he was something

    Leave the check before you are through
    I've got nothing left to prove
    If I die before I wake
    Hope I don't come back again Writer/s: Kurt Cobain

  • Bogdan from Bucarest, RomaniaTo me this song and Sappy are Nirvana's most sad songs.I mean youth is regarded as your prime, the time where everything is wonderful, beautiful, sun is shining and all that.

    So what can we say about a guy that felt like nothing when he was young ?

    As the song says,even if your youth isn't the best time you've ever had then what do you have left ?
  • Bert from Pueblo, Nmisn't this dave grohl's riff? i've heard that somewhere
