133.
Born: 20 February 1967
Birthplace: Aberdeen, Washington
Died: 5 April 1994 (suicide)
Best Known As: Lead singer of the group Nirvana
Kurt Cobain was the lead singer and guitarist for the band Nirvana, whose melodic rock songs bridged punk with pop and sold millions of records in the early 1990s. The stripped-down, amped-up anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit" made it to the top of the charts in 1991 and helped "grunge" rock unseat Michael Jackson-style pop. (It also helped put Seattle on the musical map -- Cobain was from the sort-of nearby logging town of Aberdeen, Washington.) The band's albums included Bleach (1989), Nevermind (1991) and In Utero (1993). Nirvana was briefly the hottest band in the world, but Cobain's discomfort with fame, personal demons and battles with drugs quickly caused problems. His status as rock legend was cemented when he committed suicide in 1994, apparently by shooting himself in the mouth with a shotgun.

Cobain married rocker/actress Courtney Love in 1992... The couple had one daughter, Frances Bean, born in 1992... Some fans continue to believe that Cobain was murdered. Though a suicide note was found near Cobain's body, and though the coroner ruled that Cobain's wounds were self-inflicted, these fans feel the suicide was staged, and some also accuse Courtney Love of being involved. This theory has been widely publicized but has never been proved... A 1998 documentary film, Kurt and Courtney, examined their relationship and Cobain's death.

The lead singer of Nirvana, a truely wonderful man who influenced a generation. Sung such great songs as "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Im Bloom", "Heart-Shaped Box" and "Lithium". The man who inspired me to pick up a guitar and to try and write songs of my own, and form a small band with some friends. He died before his time, wether is was by suicide or if someone killed him, the sad fact remians that he is no longer with us. He was one of the musical giants of our time, and is greatly missed.
Girl 1: Hey, Smells Like Teen Spirit is on the radio!!
Girl 2: Crank it up, I wanna hear Kurt sing. =D

Seemed cool, never knew him personally so I will just say "seemed". Wrote and sang good music. I like his band's songs.
I hate when people think/say he was/is God or Jesus. He was a human and would most likely want to be remembered as a regular person. Let us all at least respect that.

The man...the myth...the legend. Tormented soul, turning his own angst into beautiful melodies. Blindsided by "love" literally.

Kurt Cobain was born on February 20 1967, in Hoquaim, a small town southwest of Seattle. His family moved to Aberdeen, and his parents would get divorced. He had a dysfunctional childhood - or, indeed, life - from there on out. He left Aberdeen for Olympia, where he formed the band Nirvana. The sudden success and critical acclaim of the band that would eventually come floored him. In Feburary 1992 he'd marry Courtney Love, who was already pregnant with his child, Francis Bean Cobain. On April 5th Kurt Cobain died, apparently by his own hand. The death was offically ruled by a suicide, although fans and conspiracy theorists alike speculate upon the subject to this day. He left behind a musical legacy with Nirvana that has yet to be rivaled.

Kurt Cobain, along with Nirvana, changed the music industry drastically in that they ended the Metal era of the 1980's and influenced the modern bands we hear today.

Most people would like to talk about his death, if he was killed, if he committed suicide, etc, and this very fact alone might have made him a legend to many people. But to me, he's a legend because he made great influential music. Music that rock wouldn't survive without. Nirvana is the core and heart of the rock body. Embrace him, not his death.
