"Rock Star (Alternate Version)" as written by Courtney M Love and Eric T. Erlandson....
Well I went to school, oh
Well I went to school, ha ha
Well I went to school in Olympia
Everyone's the same
What do you do
With a revolution?

When I went to school in Olympia, ya, ya, ya
And everyone's the same
We look the same
We talk the same
Yeah
Don't you please
Make me real, fuck you
Make me sick, fuck you
Make me real, fuck you

Well I went to school in Olympia
Everyone's the same
And so are you, in Olympia, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Everyone's the same
We look the same
We talk the same yeah
We even fuck the same
Well I went to school in Olympia, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Don't you please
Make me real, come on
Make me sick, come on
Make me real, yeah yeah yeah

Do it for the kids, yeah
Do it for the kids, yeah
Do it for the kids, yeah
Do it for the kids, yeah
Do it do it do it do it do it
For the kids

No we're not done
Well I went to school in Olympia
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

    General CommentWell, to me it seems to be about riotgrrrls - especially since the movement pretty much began in Olympia. But I think it can be applied to a lot of situations, such as literally going to a school where everyone is the same.

    General Commentyeh its probably about how everyones the same etc following crowds.

    about the riot grrl thing, i remeber reading about how courtney love and robin barbur etc were getting frustrated about how the kinder - whore look(ages ago before hole got properly famous) associated with riot girls was becoming too sold out and fake, with young girls riting slut and whore over them without realsing the irony.

    General Commenti think this song is about her going to school and then becoming a grunge queen very quickly.

    General Commenti think its the same concept as "school" by nirvana, i think she was inspired by a lot of kurts songs. its not a literal school, its just the music scene she belongs to where you have to look and play like everyone else or they wont accept you. in "school" kurt says "youre in high school again", its like hes saying he just got out of high school where no one accepted him and now its exactly the same even though hes a rock star. and thats what courtneys saying in this song i think
