Personal Quote:

It is just sort of insulting, though, that all I will probably be remembered for is that fact that a very famous dude casually dropped my name in an interview. That this is as good as it will get for me, that I will always be subservient to that remark. (On Kurt Cobain) See more »


Black is referenced in the song "Fire Water Burn" by Bloodhound gang, with the lyric "I'm not black like Barry White, no, I'm white like Frank Black is". The song then pays homage to Black's band Pixies by rewriting several lines of their song "Monkey Gone to Heaven" from Pixies' seminal 1989 album "Doolittle". See more »
