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, (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.

Kurt Cobain was an influential musician, although technically he was not good at all at guitar, he came up with catchy riffs and sung from the heart, his guitar playing was messy and he knew it yet he made good stuff from it. A prime example who isn't technically good at the insttrument yet extremely talented.
A lot of Kurt Cobain early solos, (well the stuff you'll get on disc 1 of with the lights out and bleach) were messy and sloppy and didn't follow any particular scales.
