Chad Channing, one of NIRVANA's drummers, thinks that Kurt Cobain was a great songwriter. “I mean, that was the thing that appealed to me from day one when they came up to me asking if I wanted to be their drummer. Heavy guitars and all that kind of stuff wasn't anything new to me by that time, but the way he wrote his vocal melodies and made these heavy songs into heavy pop songs, I just thought was very intriguing. Especially a song like “About A Girl” for example. It's kind of heavy, but it's got a total pop sensibility,” Chad Channing have said.
