➥ Kurt Cobain described this song as “About people, and what they’re expected to act like.” The lyrics are intentionally contradictory and confusing, with one line rebutting the next.
➥ Nirvana producer Butch Vig says that this is one of his favorites from the album. He told NPR: “I think that song is about acceptance, and about misfits. You’re cool no matter how screwed up you are. Come As You Are is an ode to accepting someone for who they are.”
➥ Nirvana almost named Nevermind, the album Come As You Are is on, ‘Sheep’ - a reference to people who follow the herd.
➥ In Cobain’s hometown of Aberdeen, Washington, they put up a road sign after his death that read “Come As You Are.”
"Oh please let it rain today. This city’s so filthy. Like my mind in ways…"
do you ever talk to someone and literally everything they say is so fucking adorable and you just wanna talk to them for hours about nothing in particular because talking to them is the best part of your day
You do care. You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.
