I could go so many different ways with this post, like how far he should relate to Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. But I won’t go there. But yes, Fred Durst relates to Cobain.
When asked about the bonus track on Gold Cobra called “My Own Cobain,” Freddy tells Kerrang magazine that he tries “not to elaborate too much on the metaphors, but here’s something I haven’t told a lot of people. We have an older song called ‘It’ll Be OK’ [from 2000’s Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water]. It’s directly about me fantasizing inside of the depression of someone with a tortured mind, like Kurt Cobain.
“I really connect with him,” Durst continued. “I have my own torture. I’ve been impacted by his poetry, his philosophies and music, obviously. On this new song, it’s another way into my depression and expression of that turmoil.”
