20 Years Later, Kurt Cobain on Sexism, Punk, and Thinking He was Gay

The latest installment of PBS’s excellent Blank on Blank—which has previously featured lost interviews with Jim Morrison, James Brown, the Beastie Boys, and many more—excerpts a July 1993 interview with Kurt Cobain conducted by Jon Savage and recorded on a cassette tape.

Subscribers to Rock’s Backpages can listen to the whole interview there. The rest of us can contemplate subscribing after listening to the five minutes above (and enjoying, as always with Blank on Blank, the animation by Patrick Smith).
