The song evokes the time when Cobain was living with the born-again Christian parents of one of his friends after the collapse of his relationship with his parents following their divorce and formation of new family units in which Cobain felt he did not belong. Nirvana biographer, Michael Azerrad claimed the song was an allusion to Karl Marx’s concept of religion as the opium of the masses.

Expressive Content in Music One of the big issues within philosophy of music is the question of musical meaning. How can music ‘mean’ anything?

Here one association seems rather clear. When we think of noise, as it relates to human behaviour, one thing we will not associate it with is being calm.
