The Worst Kurt Cobain Lede Ever 

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

At this point, this post is a month old. However, I’ve referenced it about a half dozen times already, so I really ought to link to it. Last month, CNN featured an article on Kurt Cobain that opened with this:

“And I swear that I don’t have a gun.”

— Kurt Cobain, “Come As You Are”

Despite the pledge in those lyrics that went around the world in the early 1990s, police in Seattle say that Kurt Cobain did have at least one gun.

Deadspin staffers took a crack at topping that terrible introduction. Ultimately, I think they failed, despite valiant efforts like this:

“Rape me / Rape me, my friend,” Kurt Cobain once wrote, but there’s nothing friendly about this.
