In 1989, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic had a conversation with British journalist John Robb in New York City for a 20-minute interview. This interview has never been published, until today…

In this unheard interview, Kurt Cobain explained how he wrote the songs from “Bleach” album. Here’s the statement:

“I imagine I am becoming happier because I am escaping. I find myself sometimes making things hard for myself so I can still have a little bit of anger.

I’ve written most of the material on this record out of Aberdeen…all of the material on this record was written in Olympia…the songs are getting poppier and poppier as I’m getting happier and happier.

They’re probably about conflicts in relationships, emotions and feelings…when I write a song, the lyrics are the least most important thing so I don’t dwell on it at all. I can actually have two or three different subjects within a song and the title will mean nothing to the rest of the music.”

Nirvana’s Bleach album was released on June 15, 1989 by Sub Pop. Click here to entire interview.
