  • Jc from Seattle I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion about the “Daddy’s little girl isn’t a girl no more” line. I feel Kurt was abused as a child by (a) male relative(s) not to mention “Rape Me”. There are many references in Kurts lyrics to sexual abuse. Feel sad that he was so tortured while he was here. Glad to have so much video available of his time here. Also happy and privileged to have seen Nirvanas first show in Seattle. Seeing that raw talent one knew they would rise to the top.
  • Zero from The Abyss, NjThis song was criticized at the time for having lyrics too similar to Mudhoney's "Sweet Young Thing Ain't Sweet No More". (the chorus)
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjActually, the vocals seem kind of Lemmy-ish.
  • Sky from Blue Springs, MoThis song is about the girl he almost had sex with in high school that was said to be mentally retarted. in the chorus he refers to the word "stoned" simply because he was high at the time. thus implying the verse "this is out of my reach (x3) gone". if you listen to it from this perspective you will know. the verse "daddy's little girl aint a girl no more" also confirms this. the repetition of "negative creep" throughout the song further confirms this.
  • Santiago from Cordoba, ArgentinaI personally think this song is about kurt and his confused sexuality, remember that in high school kurt was called gay and related to a femenine boy....daddy little girl aint a girl no more

    R.I.P KURT where ever you are
  • Layton from Paris, TxSounds nothing like Motorhead.
  • Mac from San Jose, CaDon't this song seem a tad bit[very much] Motorheady to anyone else?

    I remember the 1st time hearing it and wondering if Kurt was trying to channel Lemmy.
  • Chris from Ontario, Canadakiller freaking killer whale of a song lol
  • Austin from Smallsville,new England, --This song has no meaning what so ever. Kurt said that most of the lyrics for bleach were written right before the recording.
  • Nezmeat from Nashville, TnYes, Kurt wasn't married to Courtney yet when bleach was released. It wasn't until after they were married that they had a daughter.
  • Anonymousjust to clear it up he didn't have a daughter at the time they released the song.

    The "daddy's little girl..." part is definitely just one of those filler lines he had lying around and decided to throw it in there, he does that very often(a lot of songwriters do actually). i don't see how there can be a real significance to this line.
  • Nikhil from Rome, Italyawsome song, one of my favourites
  • No_id_please from Hippy Town, Coit really shows how someone can feel distanced from there daughter, maby kurt felt this way. "daddys little girl aint a girl no more" he probly knows how hard it is to undertand kids.....
  • Nick from Kingston, AustraliaThis is an awsome song then played live go to youtube and watch it live its sweet
