"Our songs are about changing yourself, frustration. There was this anthem the skate-rock kids were claiming for their own, ‘Don’t Resist’, to not resist against repression. ‘No Recess’, one of our new songs, was just some surreal idea I had about being in school and being in social cliques all the time, and then you grow-up, having to deal with exactly the some things with your friends at parties and in clubs as you did in high school. It’s exactly the same."
— Kurt Cobain (1990)
