happy-blood:

Kurt Cobain wrote “Heart-Shaped Box” in early 1992. Cobain forgot about the song for a while, but began working on it again when he and his wife, Courtney Love, moved to a house in the Hollywood Hills.
In a 1994 Rolling Stone interview, Love said she overheard him working on the song’s riff in a closet. She said she asked him if she could use the riff for one of her songs, to which he replied, "Fuck off!" and closed the closet door. "He was trying to be so sneaky", said Love. “I could hear that one from downstairs.”
Cobain said the song was inspired by documentaries about children with cancer." Anytime I think about it, it makes me sadder than anything I can think of." - Kurt Cobain
