Kurt Cobain: I still feel that we're more diverse than a lot of grunge bands, we have a little bit more to offer, more in the pop lines, but we'll still remind you that we're Nirvana and we're gonna play hard and heavy. So, it'll be heavy, hard, pop. It'll be kind of a mixture of what we're doing now. Like, this album's pretty extreme - with Paper Cuts, it's just this relentless, heavy, screaming song and About A Girl is really poppy and happy, so we just kind of mesh them together. Most reviewers expect a band just to have a specific format, you know? This is 'them,' this is their 'product' and every song sounds the same, but we don't wanna do that. We don't wanna go so far as to be like Zeppelin III, but it would be nice to mix it up a little.
KC: Well, really, I mean, if you have a broken neck, you know, it won't go back onto a guitar. But if it's cracked, I might just put a screw in the body or something. But no, I put pieces together of guitars that aren't broken and are kind of broken. I just glue and tape and hope it stays together. I don't know, it probably does have an effect on the guitar, but with the cheap guitars that I use, it probably doesn't matter. They feedback all they can, anyhow.
