Even after Kurt did the world a favor and killed himself in 1994, many people continue to worship him as God (see also Necrophilia). Many 16-year-old girls and emo fucktards have Kurt icons. Magazines such as Rolling Stone have even named Kurt one of the top 20 guitarists of all time, even though Kurt never actually learned how to play the guitar and just punched it a lot.
Girl 2: Crank it up, I wanna hear Kurt sing. =D
Most people would like to talk about his death, if he was killed, if he committed suicide, etc, and this very fact alone might have made him a legend to many people. But to me, he's a legend because he made great influential music. Music that rock wouldn't survive without. Nirvana is the core and heart of the rock body. Embrace him, not his death.
