Kurt Cobain made this as an anti-rape statement. He made it so blunt that nobody would misinterpret it.
Well of course it's controversial, it's a song about rape! Nirvana are pro-rape! They encourage it with this song!

Plus the single cover had a pregnant seahorse and it's a simple fact that male seahorses give birth (so this pretty much implies that even males of any species can get raped. Take that SJWs! ). - Redrocm
To the other commenter, this song isn’t pro rape, it’s against it. Controversial move from Nirvana regardless - Ethansics
Good song, but yes, this song makes you want to have sex, and the chorus, “ I wanna f**k you like an animal; I wanna feel you from the inside...” is so NOT for kids. Best lust anthem ever!
Because this song is sexy - Metalmaniakkk
The song isn't even about committing suicide. And the parents of the teenager knew he suffered clinical depression. But it's always easier to blame someone else- especially a musician- than to be more involved in their kid's life and admit to being lousy parents because they weren't more involved. I'm glad the jury ruled in Ozzy's favor. What happened wasn't his fault.
