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

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

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.

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
Report...
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
