When I thought I was straight, I was obsessed with romance songs written by straight men, sung by women, no pronoun change. My favorite song for AGES was "Teenage Dirtbag" sung by a woman in the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain, but I juuuuuust couldn't put my finger on why. Yes, that's SO VERY heterosexual, past me.

  • Melody Maker: Soundgarden are a very male band. Right, Kim?
  • Kim Thayil: Maleness in terms of what? We're not these pick-up driving, beer-guzzling, 'Hey look at the pussy on her!' guys. Our maleness comes a lot from our creativity, our aggression, our intelligence. When I was younger, I had a real problem with maleness. Between the ages of 18 and 25, I thought that was the thing that sucked most. I was so offended by male behaviour. And I was very protective towards the women I came into contact with
  • But it's very macho to behave like that. It is. It's also very condescending. It's one thing to repect someone, it's another to be someone's dad and say, 'Women should be treated like this! Homosexuals should be treated like this! And those dumb pig men shouldn't do this!' Yeah well, that's probably true, but you shouldn't treat people like children - that's also a very male, heterosexual thing to do.
