"Hit So Hard" as written by Courtney M Love, Eric T. Erlandson and Billy Corgan....
Put me up above the boy
The one I love I should destroy
My sweet tooth has burned a hole
Forget about it all

He hit so hard
I saw stars
He hit so hard
I saw God

He's cold give him a candycoat
He can't swim but he can float
One by one they all fall down
I look at him and drown

He hit so hard
I saw stars
He hit so hard
I saw God

He's so candy my downfall
Melts in my mouth 'til he's nothing at all
This keeps me, I can't sleep
He rages to be true

He hit so hard
I saw stars
He hit so hard
I saw God

Oh, man, he hit so hard
I saw stars
He hit so hard
I saw God

    General Commentthis is what courtney said:
    (from an article about Hole's performance at the Viper Room)

    "After singing "Hit So Hard," which has been interpreted any number of ways, including literally, she remarked, "that song is about a really great orgasm. There's no rock critics here so I can tell you the truth." At last!"

    General CommentWhy won't people stop debating whether Courtney Love killed Kurt Cobain on this site? I'm sure there are other sites with forums for that, but not here. SONG MEANINGS!

    General CommentThis is definitely about how she misses Kurt and feels guilty about his death. Not that she killed him, but the fact that maybe she could have done something to prevent him from commiting suicide.

    General CommentI'm not sure what this is about but for me it's about an abusive relationship in which the man physically hits the woman and she's singing about it. It's a good song. Hole are great.

    General CommentFor me, I think it's about Kurt and missing him. I don't think it's a literal "hit". I think its a metaphor for the impact he had on her life.

    General Commentit's about abuse I guess, except in real life, she'd be the abusive one.

    General CommentI'd say its a lot more complicated than abuse. literally, yes, it would seem to be about abuse but its most likely refering to how the love she had for kurt, and the sadness she had after his death hit her so hard. maybe causing her to reevaluate her purpose/goals - refering to the whole i saw god part.
