"This song is about people, and what they're expected to act like." - Kurt Cobain
"I think that song is about acceptance, and about misfits. You're cool no matter how screwed up you are. 'Come As You Are' is an ode to accepting someone for who they are." - Butch Vig
"Kurt really did not play a lot of solos. This one is more of a melodic part based on the vocal melody. It's not trying to show off pyrotechnics. It complements the melody of the song.'' - Butch Vig
