this is inspired from pookie's thread.  i remember hearing that the chili peppers song 'tearjerker' is about kurt cobain.  can anyone shed some light on this?  
here are the lyrics:

"backstage in a dress"?
he did play dress up sometimes, didn't he?

also, any other songs about cobain?  not such a huge fan anymore, just curious.

kiedis explains Tearjerker in Scar Tissue. it's worth reading.

the first time kiedis ever saw cobain, it was backstage somewhere and he was in a dress, and kiedis was really struck by this. it's more detailed and better told in the book.

anyway, this is the closest i see to a chili peppers thread after searching "pepper".


anybody agree that Soul to Squeeze is a fucking awesome song? i've been listening to it a lot lately, even though weezer's pink triangle is a better fit for my current situation. good, good shit.

Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

Red Hot Chili Peppers slam Bush

Red Hot Chili Peppers have slammed US President George W Bush, calling him 'a liar'.

Bassist Flea has called for Bush to be impeached and has said that he hopes America does not go to war with Iran as it would be a "bloodbath".

In an impassioned message on the band's official website, he said: "George W Bush should definitely be impeached. He is a liar and his lies have bought misery to millions of people and bought no good to anyone except for the corporate oil billionaires who are making huge profits. They are profiting during wartime - that is unscrupulous and terribly sad."

He explained: "W Bush has made the world a much less safe place. Before the war Iraq was not a place for terrorists. Saddam Hussein, brutal dictator that he was, was secular and had nothing to do with Al Qaeda and was sanctioned to death and had no power outside of his country. Now it is a breeding ground for terrorism and anti-Americanism is at an all time high all over the world and the people of Iraq are no better off at all."

In the lengthy post, Flea added: "George W Bush has sent American soldiers over there to be maimed and killed only to serve his selfish oil company needs and for his ego. The administration's line that they were over there because they wanted to spread democracy and freedom is nothing else besides a lie. If they had any interest at all in the well being of other human beings they would be doing what they could for people who desperately need and would love help in Africa."

Turning his attention to Iran, the bass player said: "I pray to God that George W Bush and his administration does not invade Iran. It would be a bloodbath. Why don't they just leave the Iranians alone and go through the United Nations and work on making the United Nations as strong and as just as possible.

"An invasion of Iran would be the worst possible thing that could happen. I pray to God that it does not happen."

Red Hot Chili Peppers release their new double album 'Stadium Arcadium' on May 8, which will be preceded by the single 'Dani California' on May 1.

When I first read that I thought you put :yabbse racist wedding a machine gun:, which brought images to my mind of a man and a firearm being bonded in Holy Matrimony.  There should be an emoticon for that.
