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..."

Kurt Cobain, (born Febuary 20th, 1967) was the lead singer and guitarist for the popular grundge band Nirvana, married to musician Courtney Love. He died in April of 1994, supposedly of a gunshot to the head. There are some others that say he had overdosed much more than the lethal amount on heroin, and there was no way he could of shot himself; Courtney did. Now, I don't believe any of this really. There isn't really evidence Courtney killed him, but it is rather suspicious, seeing as how his death was very suspicious and Courtney's crazy.

The only person that will ever know the truth is Kurt Cobain himself, and Courtney.
Chick: Hey, I got this cool Nirvana shirt.
Dude: Awesome. Kurt Cobain was a legend.

Kurt Cobain was born to Don and Wendy Cobain in Hoquiam, Washington on Feb. 20, 1967. He had one child, Frances Bean. He married the lead singer of the grunge band, Hole, Courtney Love. Kurt Cobain was the songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist for Nirvana. Nirvana was said to have "killed metal". Kurt Cobain was murdered by his daughter's nanny, Michael DeWitt. A very personal friend of Courtney Love. He was paid 50,000 dollars to kill Kurt Cobain, by Courtney Love. This has yet to be proven in a court of law, but with websites such as www.justiceforkurt.com andwww.cobaincase.com, the word will be spread and Kurt Cobain will finally be able to rest in peace. Kurt obain died on April 4th, of 1994 in his 171 Lake Washington Blvd. East Seattle, Washington home.

Lead singer and guitarist for band Nirvana. Married to Courtney Love and had 1 child, daughter Frances Bean. Was not the most talented musician, by far, but definitly had the most impact on music of the 90's. Stupid metalheads and rap wannabe's hate him, because he was successful without all the glitz and gimmicks and skanky women(well, one skanky woman). Had a lot of mental problems, as obvious to anyone who has read his journals or paid attention to his lyrics. But, his profound lyrics combined with then unheard of musical stylings started one the biggest musical movements of the past 30 years.
No one knows what Kurt Cobain would have done with the rest of his life, but it's a shame we couldn't find out by him taking it's natural course.
