Top 10 Kurt Cobain Quotes

MontyPython

The Top Ten

1 "I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not."

Nope, those are not his words. Andre Gide, a French, Nobel Prize winning author, said this.

Exactly. - RiverClanRocks

2 "Nobody dies a virgin, life f**ks us all."

I loved it - so true... - Metal_Treasure

Very true - Martinglez

3 "Wanting to be someone else is a waste of who you are."
4 "If any of you hate homosexuals, people of a different colour, or women, please do this one favour for us... Don't come to our shows and don't buy our records."
5 "Friends are just known enemies."

Dark and psychotic cynicism.

6 "There's good in all of us and I think I just love people too much, so much that it makes me feel so f**king sad."
7 "We have no right to express an opinion until we know answers."

Excellent advice for many posters on this site.

8 "Thank you for the tragedy. I need it for the art."
9 "The duty of youth is to challenge corruption."

No. The "duty of youth" is to know what the hell they're talking about before challenging anything. See previous item.

10 "Humans are stupid, I'm ashamed to be one"

The Contenders

11 (After someone screams "FREE BIRD!" at a concert when Nirvana is performing live) "I knew someone was gonna say that."

How dumb can they be? That's a completely different song by a completely different band. - RiverClanRocks

It's a somewhat common thing that people often yell out at concerts; kind of like "Justin Bieber" being added to many top tens lists where he probably really doesn't belong - Billyv

12 "It's better to burn out than to fade away"

Actually that’s Neil Young - InsertCleverName
