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.

A good singer and songwriter, an okay guitar player in a great band. Is slightly overrated, as someone said. People keep saying that kurt cobain is their idol, their god, their angel. But I bet they've never even fucking heard one nirvana song. They just want to look cool and alternative and "anti-establishment". Why is everyone caught up in some paranoia induced bullshit conspiracy that kurt cobain was murdered by courtney? He was suicidal, thats a fact, i read his biography. Lets try to remember him for what he was, a great musician.

the greatest musician of all time. He was the lead singer of the greatest band ever(Nirvana), and he will truly be missed. Kurt, where ever you are now, you are still loved by millions...
