In reply to:
Space may be the final frontier
But itís made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderonís not far away
The way I see this verse:
Space figures heavily in Bowie's music but it's suggested as a fabrication (made in a Hollywood basement).
The spheres might refer to either celestial spheres (planets, stars, etc) or spheres as in power, control, influence and in the latter case, Cobain is influenced by Bowie.
Now Alderon is the doomed planet from Star Wars and it's 'not to far away'.
It's about to explode just like Cobain.
