Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, to his father, (an auto mechanic,) and his mother, (a cocktail waitress.) He was born in the town of Hoquaim, a small town only 140 kilometers from Seattle. The Cobain's then moved to Aberdeen, WA. Kurt's parents divorced when he was a child and with his parents divorce came feelings of depression, anti-sociality, and angst. Throughout his school years, Kurt was precieved as an outsider by his classmates and often distanced himself from them. In 1986, Nirvana was formed after a slew of failed bands were dead. Nirvana consisted of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and numerous drummers inclulding Chad Channing and his permanent replacement Dave Grohl. In 1989, Nirvana recorded it's first album, intitled Bleach, for the local label, Sup Pop Records. In 1991, The David Geffen company bought out Nirvana's contract, and the band was signed to Geffen Records. Two and a half years after the release of their first album, Bleach, Nirvana released thier second album, and their most popular, Nevermind. It left a lasting impression on the mainstream music scene. To it's listeners, Nirvana was a breath of fresh air, pulling itself aside from the then stale pop music scene. Nevermind brought in over $550 million dollars, leaving Nirvana "overnight millionares." It was clear that Kurt did not enjoy the fame and publicity and was not going to cope well with their newly acclaimed Rock and Roll lifestyle. Cobian began to use heroin in the early 90's, he claimed to use Herion to calm the pain of his extremely painful stomach disease, that to this day, is unclassified. In 1992, Nirvana released Incesticide and Kurt married the allready pregnant Courtney Love, (their daughter Frances Bean Cobain was born in 1993.) In 1993, Nirvana released In Utero, their most emotional and meaningful album to date. Nirvana later filmed Unplugged for MTV. It was an all acoustic preformance, that inclulded some of Nirvana's smash hits, but most of their lesser known songs, as well as some covers of Nirvana's favorite bands. Unplugged was the last live preformance that Nirvana had before Kurt Cobain died in 1994. Many speculate that Kurts death was suicide, other's blame his wife, Courtney Love, for his murder. Either way, his fans will remember him forever. His music will never die.
Kurt Cobain, in my oppinion is one of the most talented songwriters in music history. His voice is infectious and completely unique. I know that he will never be forgotten.
Just pointing out some things about Kurt's death that haven't really been brought up (at least not as much).
I'm not gonna write down the many, many facts and details contributing to the murder theory. Just gonna name some things that have come to mind.
1. Kurt's sense of humor: Kurt had a very dark sense of humor. This is evident in songs like "I Hate Myself and Want To Die." While Kurt brought up suicide a good deal, he wasn't actually a suicidal guy who hated life. He mentioned in the "About A Son" interviews that he often looked depressed and angry when in fact he was in a good mood. This is just his natural expression. He liked to have fun, and if you watch videotapes of him with the band, you can see he's obviously a very humorous, light-hearted person, not the depressed, morose person he is often made out to be.
2. Kurt's relationship with Courtney: Kurt was very much in love with Courtney and defended her early on in the relationship. But as time went on, things began to change. Kurt, who was Bipolar, began to form a tumultuous love/hate relationship with her. He was on the verge of divorcing her, prior to his suicide (which would have lost Courtney a lot of his money).
3. Kurt's songwriting: I believe that two of his songs have messages singling out or referring to his broken relationship with Courtney. First, in "All Apologies" he mentions the lines "married/buried" in the chorus. All Apologies itself could be a song denoting his perceived failure...
cobain was the lead singer and guitarist of the seattle grunge band nirvana. kurt was a musical genius and nirvanas music is either looked at as a work of art by many or a pathetic attempt at music to some. but to no matter from which side nirvanas music is viewed, it is agreed that there was immense talent. cobain commited suicide in spring of 94 and left behind his wife courtney love and one daughter. kurts death shook fans to the core and grieved people from columnists at rolling stone to people like myself. to put his death into perspective, it was john lennons death of the 90's
Puddle of Mud's lead singer, Wesley Scatlin is almost a carbon copy of Kurt Cobain- sharing physical and musical simmalarities
The frontman, singer and truly poetic songwriter of Nirvana
. Died April 5th 1994. They can say it was a suicide or a drug overdose, but people still believe that it was Courtney Love
that commited the crime... Or had something to do with it.
R.I.P. KURT COBAIN.
n. Kurt Cobain will forever rest in peace.
heroin-addicted lead singer of nirvana.
The drugs drove him to the edge but his legend lives on. He was married to courtney love and they had a daughter called francis bean.
I love kurt cobain 4eva nd eva!!
The seat calling similar to Right nut/Left Nut, not bitch, or shotgun. Calling Kurt Cobain replaces Right Nut as it is the seat behind the shotgun.
Person 1: I got shotty!
Person 2: Kurt Cobain
Person 3: left nut!
Person 4: Shit, I hate sitting in the middle
The great frontman for a great band, Nirvana. Was made a legend, whether he liked it or not. Excellent songwriter, nice guy, ok singer, ok guitarist. He in the end was driven to suicide by the strains on his shy, reserved personality that the rock-god life had.
Seriously, stop worshipping the man. He just wanted people to leave him to live a happy life, to not be stalked by fans and paparazzi 24/7. He wasn't "perfect." He had severe drug problems, which probably contributed to his suicide. There was his dumb feud with Axl Rose. And he wasn't a "prophet." He didn't view himself as one.
RIP Kurt Cobain. You will be missed.
The ultimate icon. A tormented soul and loving father who never wanted to be famous. He was Nirvana's frontman and had a beautifully haunting voice. Just check out 'Heart Shaped Box' and 'All Apologies' if you don't believe me.
He was a lovely looking man too. He didn't deserve Courtney Love as she's just a skanky ho. Oh well, at least he got a kid out of her. Thank god Frances Bean looks more like her dad than her mum!
He took his own life on April 5th, 1994. R.I.P Kurt. We miss you very much.
Some people reckon Kurt Cobain was murdered but that's rubbish. The only reason people say that is because they don't want to believe that their 'hero' put a gun against his head and pulled the trigger. He killed himself. Get over it.
I hate the way people talk about Kurt as if he's still alive. He's dead and he's not coming back. Deal with it.
