Floyd the Barber (2:22)

Cover of Live on Air

From Live on Air and 281 other releases

A claustrophobic, desperate dirge about “a small town gone bad”, Floyd was Cobain’s comment on his upbringing in Aberdeen, Washington and the feelings of emasculation that came from living with his macho dad.

The song took its title from a character in 60s US sitcom The Andy Griffith Show.
