Frontman of the vastly overhyped Grunge Band Nirvana. His songwriting style was nonsensical and incoherent. He was -not- a good guitarist. He used 3 or 4 four guitar chords for every song, buried under half a dozen guitar effects. Having witnessed and heard enough truly talented musicians play, one can plainly see that Kurt Cobain's skills were minimal at best. As it is, the only reason Kurt Cobain and Nirvana are so highly regarded is because Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. This will automatically inflate ANY singer/musician/songwriter's popularity, and cause their actual talent to be greatly exaggerated, as is the case with Kurt Cobain.

Nirvana was a -decent- band, with their ability exaggerated after the suicide of its frontman. That's all.
"Nirvana's songs don't make any sense!"

"Kurt Cobain wan't THAT good of a guitarist..."

the white man's tupac. nobody knows who killed him or why.

one of the greatest artists of all time, from the original grunge rock band: nirvana. killed himself with a shotgun blast to the face along with an overdose of heroine... maybe not, but he's dead and sure as hell shouldnt be.
Kurt Cobain was the lead vocalist from Nirvana.

Grunge died when Kurt did

A brilliant, talented, wonderful song writer & an amazing guitar player. His music will never be forgotten, and Nirvana is still popular, 9 years after his death.
Kurt Cobain is a rock-god.

A famous rocker from the late 80's and early 90's. He was the guitarist and lead singer of Nirvana, along with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. He was also married to Courtney Love, who had a daughter named Frances Bean. In 1994, Kurt was found dead in his greenhouse over his garage, and his death still remains a mystery.

Kurt Cobain was the lead singer of the popular grunge band Nirvana. He died in 1994, and his reason for death is quite controversial. He's highly respected, mostly by teenage girls who swoon after his looks. He's often referred to as "god" but obviously his "fans" don't know that if he heard them say that he'd probably shit his pants. He didn't want to be the "spokesperson" for the generation, and he didn't even think Nirvana would become so big and widely known.

Frontman of Nirvana. Kurt Cobain wasn't the greatest guitar player but what made him good in my opinion was the lyrics he wrote. How cryptic they were, how he used metaphors, etc. I like Kurt Cobain, his music, and Nirvana but his fans annoy me and i'm talking about the addictive fans. If you guys loved and cared for Kurt so much you would stop calling him God. In an interview, he said he just rather be just remembered as a great singer/song writer. And put all the theories to bed about his death. Kurt never wanted attention for anything in his personal life so imagine what he must feel how his "fans" keep obssesing about who killed him and who he was then rather the music he put out. And Kurt wasn't the inovator of Grunge you idiots one of his favorite bands, The Melvins, were along with Mother Love Bone and Soundgarden.
Rest in Peace Kurt Cobain 1967 - 1994.
