For Free

A scrap of backward-tape sound gives way to one of the Meat Puppets' more conventional vocal harmony-driven rockers on "For Free," which vaguely alludes to a battle for the future that's been won, though the band doesn't sound at all thrilled with the victory. The song's been interpreted as a lament for the death of Kurt Cobain, a friend of composer Curt Kirkwood. "The title says it all," Kirkwood said. "It's not really for Cobain, per se. I did it because I've known a lot of people who've killed themselves in the name of this garbage scene."
