Dave Grohl of Nirvana said that the band felt they had "made it" after Yankovic recorded "Smells Like Nirvana", a parody of the grunge band's smash hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit". In his Behind the Music special, Yankovic stated that when he called Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain to ask if he could parody the song, Cobain gave him permission, then paused and asked, "Um... it's not gonna be about food, is it?" Yankovic responded with "No, it'll be about how no one can understand your lyrics"According to members of Nirvana interviewed for Behind the Music, when they saw the video of the song, they laughed hysterically. Additionally, Cobain described Yankovic as "a musical genius."

If they could laugh about that surely so can I. So, care to explain your comment?

Well I'm not a shrink but I sorta' understand how repeated mockery and rejection could/would lead to drug abuse and ultimately overwhelm an individual's drive to survive and ability to overcome adversity.
Hey, the world is not a fair place and some people are dealt really shitty hands.

Let's see Marc, Cobain was a multi-millionaire who decided to drugs on his own. No one put drugs up or into him. He offed himself because he had some deeply mental problems that stemmed from things in his life, not his singing and guitar playing. From what I have read, he was a very disturbed man.

Was going to bed when I read this...could not agree with you more....there are so many talented musicians out there that don't 'make it' but still plod away in the bars, on the sidewalks...etc...but still they don't kill themselves...very difficult to feel sorry for this guy!!!
