I'll Stick Around

"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. A live version recorded on May 25, 1997 at the Manchester Apollo was released as a B Side to the CD2 version of the Everlong single.

"Weird Al" Yankovic included "I'll Stick Around" in his polka medley "The Alternative Polka", from Bad Hair Day.

Famous quotes containing the word stick:

    All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, ‘I’m a human being, goddamn it, my life has value.’ So I want you to get up now, I want all of you to get up out of your
    chairs. I want you to get up right now, and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out, and yell, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.’
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)
