Interviewer:"Was there a point during the writing of ‘In Utero’ where you tried to deny that Pop sensibility?"
Kurt: "Well, I feel we’re through it for the most part, as a Pop band. In our earlier days we didn’t have a lot of melody. If you listen to ‘Incesticide’, even ‘Bleach’, there’s not much. Obviously there’s songs like ‘Scentless Apprentice’ and ‘Milk It’ that are just balls-out, angry Punk Rock-type music…"
Interviewer: "Not forgetting the ferocious ‘tourette’s’."
Kurt: “Yeah, that kind of song didn’t need to be written - if anything it hurt the album. I could scream my guts out at any time, fool myself and everybody else. I can work up enough energy to scream my guts our for any fast Punk Rock song, but it wasn’t as good as ‘Territorial Pissings’.”
