    Thank you so much for creating this thread

    It will depend on how squeamish you are I imagine but (I'll put this into a spoiler maybe)...

    I read the spoiler... Later I edited to my post, that I think it might be a Polly, who was really retarted and once, when Kurt was desperate horny teenager, he attampted to have sex with her... But it could be about this Polly, who knows. I've heard so much about what Nirvana's lyrics mean, don't mean that I think only Kurt could really tell us, what are his songs about. I know people used to say "Rape me" is about his inner feelings of getting raped by medias, but in one interview he personally said, the song is not about him and is about literal rape of some woman. But you could be right, I can imagine Kurt would be really touched by thing like this. I know he was not only feminist, but as any other INFP would be, he was humanitarian and idealist, so I wouldn't be suprised if the song would be about what you said. It sounds like Kurt to me...

    I like the aesthetic of the movement, but not necessarily the music.

    @<a href="http://www.typologycentral.com/forums/member.php?u=15886" target="_blank">superunknown</a> might understand what I'm attempting to say here...but the cords are played almost backwards from how they had been done up until that point. This is the Grunge sound and since this song is slower and makes use of fewer instruments you can really hear it. This song is a masterpiece as well.
    It was a lot more experimental than other things going on at the time, like Poison or Ratt, lolz.

    Jeff Beckian is a good adjective for backwards sounding fretwork

    Because of where I am from...

    I have met countless people that knew him and knew him well and based on all of that...I can't even imagine that first story involving the individual with down's syndrome being true. The common theme you hear is he was absolutely nothing like how he was portrayed in the media (being a musical genius was the only extraordinary thing about him...in all other ways he was reportedly very simple and humble)...but I get the sense much of it was his own fault. xNFPs are just weird like that I can't even explain it...but we can end up calling trouble down on ourselves...often saying and doing controversial things as a statement or for mental amusement...but not taking the time to clear up any subsequent misunderstandings, etc. We were born to push boundaries <-that's basically it and don't possess the social skills to even understand we have these things called 'reputations.'

    I can vaguely remember the news story concerning the actual Polly.

    One more for now...

    I'm not even kidding when I say not a day goes by that I don't listen to this song. I know I've already posted it a zillion times on this site but now +1. I would marry this song before I would ever marry a person (omg ha.)

    The thickness of the 'fretwork' <-haha... is distinctly Grunge.

    Where are you from? I was wondering if the story is true, or not . I know Kurt was nothing like the medias showed him. I am myself an INFP, so I can pretty much understand and relate what you are saying about INFPs and I guess Kurt is too much presented as some hero. He's never been a hero, never wanted to be... But there is something about him, some contradiction, that reminds me on my own self and smells bad... He said a lot of times, he never wanted to be a rockstar and that was a lie. He dreamed about being a rockstar, but he was never capable of handeling the tensions, that came with being a rockstar and that is why he so much fought against the medias, or supressed his "rockstar image." But he wanted it...more then anything...just when the real life and real responsibilty came he rather ran away into his little shelter saying how unfear the life was to him... I think this is the whole tragedy of Kurt.
