I'll Stick Around Single Art

"I'll Stick Around" is the second major single released by the Foo Fighters from their 1995 self titled debut album Foo Fighters. From its release, the song was believed to have been written about Kurt Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, with whom the surviving members of Nirvana were constantly battling over royalties and song rights; an indication of this is the exhaustive repetition of the phrase "I don't owe you anything" in the song's chorus. Some time after the album's release, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl confirmed this in an exclusive interview with Mojo magazine.

The video for this song was the first Foo Fighters music video and was directed by Jerry Casale, who was a member of and directed videos for Devo.

LyricsEdit

  I thought i knew
  All it took to bother you
  Every word i said was true
  And that you'll see
  How could it be
  I'm the only one who sees
  Your rehearsed insanity Yeah
  I still refused
  All the methods you abused
  It's alright if you're confused
  Let me be
  I've been around
  All the pawns you've gagged and bound
  They'll come back and knock you down
  And I'll be free
  I've taken all and I've endured
  One day this all will fade I'm sure
  I don't owe you anything
  I had no hand
  In your ever desperate plan
  It returns and when it lands
  Words are due
  I should have known
  We were better off alone
  I looked in and I was shown
  You were too
  I've taken all and I've endured
  One day this all will fade I'm sure
  I don't owe you anything
  I'll stick around
  I'll stick around
  And learn from all that came from it
