So dark, I love it.
Like in the one interveiw in Seattle before Dave joined the band I belivele the drum like interrupted and told the interveiwer a story about this ummmm so to say rape story and this was before the song came out I think and I think that he might have totem the idea of the song from the story he told to her and its just a sad thing that Kurt has passed and slowly vary vary slowly that Nirvana is starting to fade out :( RIP KURT COBAIN
Kurt was an amazing writer. R.I.P Kurt
So weird but I like it.
I really love this song. this is about a rape case he saw in the poster. And it's incredible that he can put such creativity and passion into something so insane. He says it in the voice of if he was the rapist. Really incredible how he saw the other side!! Love you Kurt<33
It's like the strangest song ever when he says Polly wants a cracker...
I love Kurt soooo much
Polly was a rape case in the paper he made up the name she got away didnt get let go
Kurt had to have been disturbed person but a genius one

Really like this song
Dang
Fave nirvana song fer sure
This song is about a murder who kept a girl chained up and raped her until she finally escaped... Think twice before you say "I'm Polly"
IF POLLY WANTS A CRACKER THAN JUST GIVE IT TO HER!!!!

This song is amazing! R.I.P. Kurt

I really like how the song is told from the point of view of the rapist and how it doesn't make said rapist look like a monster.
Please read my profile, follow me if you want to. I want my profile to be heard and told. Everything in the bio is all true and legit.
This song is devious
Kind of scares me
Still love it though :D

I love NIRVANA! When I listen to any song by them, I fall in love all over again! Kurt Cobain always and will remain the best ever!

Funny how no one knew wat this song meant. So kurt hadta come out w/ "rape me" so people wud get it. Such a trickster was Kurt. Lovely lyrically & special. He died way to soon. As he said its better to burn out than fade away
Wow Kurt took a rape story of a 14 year old girl and turned it into a brilliant song. By the way he named it Polly that was not the girls name.
This song is so simple yet says a lot nd we all want a cracker :o
Lol.. Jwebb1451. R u that gay dude?!
Give it back to her
Kurt Cobain is a genius. <3
��
I can play this on guitar
Nirvana is one of the greatest bands of all time... cant wait to get my nirvana tatoo
Catchy.
As horrible as rape is, I have to agree with Kevin Trarp. It really is brilliant.
Kurt was the man!
Deliciously creepy
This song is awesome..... h e shows it from the rapist's point of view and actually makes them look human. And yes it is about a true story of a women named Polly who was raped and tortured.... . . C o b a i n was a genius. Brilliant song writing
So. Bad
This song is about the actual kidnapping of a 14 year old girl. In 1987, she was returning from a concert in Tacoma, Washington when she was abducted by a man named Gerald Friend. He took her back to his mobile home and raped her. The girl, whose name was not released, was tortured with a whip, a razor, and a blowtorch. She managed to escape when Friend took her for a ride and stopped for gas. He was arrested and sent to jail. (taken from songfacts.co m )
Real smooth.
Good acoustics B)
This is the first song Shaun Morgan learned to play on guitar.Beaut i f u l idol.
NICK your retarted
Let me take a ride, cut yourself. Want some help, please myself ❤❤❤
This song is still pretty awesome :)
This song is definitely just a story... this woman was rated brutally but she is smart enough to play her captor and escape. It was in the news. It's just giving an account of what happened by symbolically relating the girl with a caged bird. In my opinion it's meant to sound creepy and sick because that's exactly how this horrible act was... he even puts an homage to the girl by saying that her will and instincts are incredible.. . also of course this account is from the rapists point of view w
Kurt tells a story in his song. He is not promoting nor putting anything down

It's about a girl that gets raped but pretends to like it to get away in was in the news
