The Lyrics

He wore a big flannel shirt
And his name it was Kurt--
He was tortured and sad
Also one crappy dad--
Analyze, analyze, analyze--

Ain't surprised he went south
Married to that loudmouth--
He needs stardom he said
Like a hole in the...(nevermind)--
Open wide, open wide, open wide(*click*-boom)

In his final note he
wrote "Hey it smells like dead me"--
I don't wanna be mean
Just feel bad for the Bean--
He done died, he done died, he done died--

Pay no mind, pay no mind, pay no mind--

Super stuff, Claude: some nice lines and a wonderfully sick subject ;-)

Cobain was not the John Lennon of his generation. He wasn't even talented enough to be the Jim Morrison. Cobain blew his brains out? As Noel Coward would have said, He must've been an awfully good shot.

Weird Al must be the John Lennon of the song parody. I love all of you weird and wonderful people.

Loved it. Totally loved it. I get so sick of hearing people worship this clown. I'm not sayin' that its good that he's dead, but I'm just glad that other people share the same views as I do about him.

Thanks GK; it looks like most people who voted on this one felt pretty strongly one way or the other.
