talented and gifted singer and songwriter, lousy guitar player but ok for the genre he was in, but his message made up for his musical skills, said to have inspired a generation but thats a matter of opinion. Shot up 3x the deadly amount of herion for an average person and blew his brains out with a 12 gauge
kurt cobain was a gunge legend

Slightly overrated musician whose (not wholly voluntary) success allowed music companies to ladle the anti-establishment revivalist hard rock of the Pacific Northwest out of the pot it had been bubbling in for years, and attached a corporate label to it (grunge) that would soon be handed over to bloodsucking leeches like Bush, Creed, Puddle of Mudd, et al. This realization (and the widespread romanticising of his angst) led him to suicide in mid-1994.
He was by no means untalented and had excellent melodic sense. A symbol of his age, for good and ill.
Kurt Cobain was good, but he wasn't strawberry fudge icecream sundae with a cherry tomato on top good! Maybe fudgecicle with multicolored sprinkles good...maybe.

Genius inventor of 'Dude Rock', a genre of heavy metal characterised by 'sensitive', quiet verses followed by a loud angry 'da da dah!!' chorus with vocals that sound like they're being sung by a pregnant hippo chewing marbles. Since made even more popular by great bands such as Nickelback.
If it wasn't for Kurt Cobain there'd be no Nickelback.

The guitarist and lead singer of Nirvana. he had natural musical talent and knew how to use it. He wrote songs from the heart. Hell, he didnt even like all the fame and fortune. All he wanted, as he quoted, was to make a good living. He had a daughter named Frances Bean CObain with singer Courtney love.

Now, to all you people who believe that kurt cobain commited suicide, I suggest knowing the truth by going to cobaincase.com and justiceforkurt.com. Overall, those who did their research would tell you that it is most likely that Kurt was killed, and did not kill himself. Its a shame he was dead at the age of only 27. RIP Kurt, we miss ya.
Kurt Cobain wrote some inspiring songs, some of which are Smells Like Teen Spirit, In Bloom, Lithium, Heart Shaped Box, Lounge Act, The Man Who Sold The World, Sappy, and many many more.

Go to your local music store and buy a Nirvana record. Their second and probably most famous, even till this day, is Nevermind. Buy it. You'll love it.

1.Frontman for the grunge band, Nirvana.

2.The original emo kid.
Nirvana fan: Kurt Cobain is the best singer in the world.
Intelligent person: Come on, man. They actually started the whole emo trend. Go listen to some quality music like Cream.
