What’s the meaning behind that song? 3 Famous songs and the events that inspired them

Stan: Eminem

The song, Stan, by Eminem, was inspired by the death of Eminem’s uncle, Ronnie Nelson, who committed suicide in 1992.

Eminem’s uncle Ronnie was actually only 6 weeks older than him. The pair were the best of friends; it was Ronnie who introduced Eminem to rap for the first time when they were both 11.

Ronnie committed suicide after being rejected by a girl he liked. This event probably fueled the anger toward women, which is found in Eminem’s early songs.

 

Smells Like Teen Spirit: Nirvana

Kathleen Hanna, the lead singer of the group Bikini Kill, spray painted “Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit” on his bedroom wall one night, after a night of partying. Kurt Hanna’s words actually referred to Teen Spirit deodorant. 

Six months after this, Cobain called Hanna and asked her, if he could use her words for a song. He thought that 
Hanna was complimenting him, on being a rebellious spirit, who could inspire youth.
