Rape Me Lyrics

Rape Me

Rape me
Rape me, my friend
Rape me
Rape me, again

I'm not the only one[4x]

Hate me
Do it and do it again
Waste me
Rape me, my friend

I'm not the only one [4x]

My favorite inside source
I'll kiss your open...

    Actually in a interveiw kurt's exact words were "it is an anti let me repeat that anti-rape song" he later on said it was a "Just reward for a man who rapes a women violates her and then goes to prison and gets raped there himself"

    I think it is mainly about Kurt Cobain being depressed and he wants people to see the real him as a human being not a celebirity. He is using "rape me" as see me maybe it's what I think.

    Simply put, this song is about someone getting raped, then the rapist going to prison and getting raped themselves. This part is evident from the phrase 'I'm not the only one'. Effectively it is a anti-rape song.

    When Kurt Cobain was in high school there was a girl that most people knew who was mildly retarded, but she could still function. Late in his highschool career he became very suicidal and decided that he didn't want to die a virgin.
    he had sex with her because he was under the impression that she knew exactly what she was doing because she wasn't severely retarded.

    However, afterward she had mixed feelings about it, and rumors spread that he had raped her because her disability wasn't very severe there was much confusion about what had really happened and if she was telling the truth. Cobain was never convicted.

    This is what the song is about, it's in his journal; read it.

    If you'd like to research it yourself, it IS actually about karma and how a guy raped a girl then went to prison and was raped himself... Kurt's words.

    I don't think any of you really no much about Kurt cobain. Kurt Cobain suffered from depression. Most people who suffer from depression disrespect themselves and consider others better than themselves. This is Kurt Cobain saying that you are better than me and you are allowed to do whatever you want to me. Cobain had an idea of what rapists thought, this was that they were making their mark upon you. He was saying he deserved this; he basically had VERY low self-esteem.

    This song is an ANTI rape song. Kurt Cobain did not mean this literally. It is about how rapists go to jail and are raped there temselves.

    It's what the previous guy said, it's ironic because the person is saying 'rape me' but in the end, the rapist will just get raped once he is placed in jail.

    Actually, this song is a first person narrative of a rape victim, provoking her assailant. Kurt Cobain himself said this song was about bad karma - reaping what you sow. I personally think it's a visionary of a song, and leaving the listener to determine whether or not the victim was a man or a woman.

    It's obviously about Kurt feeling depressed and he feels like he's so vunerable so he's saying "Just use me and do what you will" and calls them his "friend" when they really aren't.
