Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, to his father, (an auto mechanic,) and his mother, (a cocktail waitress.) He was born in the town of Hoquaim, a small town only 140 kilometers from Seattle. The Cobain's then moved to Aberdeen, WA. Kurt's parents divorced when he was a child and with his parents divorce came feelings of depression, anti-sociality, and angst. Throughout his school years, Kurt was precieved as an outsider by his classmates and often distanced himself from them. In 1986, Nirvana was formed after a slew of failed bands were dead. Nirvana consisted of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and numerous drummers inclulding Chad Channing and his permanent replacement Dave Grohl. In 1989, Nirvana recorded it's first album, intitled Bleach, for the local label, Sup Pop Records. In 1991, The David Geffen company bought out Nirvana's contract, and the band was signed to Geffen Records. Two and a half years after the release of their first album, Bleach, Nirvana released thier second album, and their most popular, Nevermind. It left a lasting impression on the mainstream music scene. To it's listeners, Nirvana was a breath of fresh air, pulling itself aside from the then stale pop music scene. Nevermind brought in over $550 million dollars, leaving Nirvana "overnight millionares." It was clear that Kurt did not enjoy the fame and publicity and was not going to cope well with their newly acclaimed Rock and Roll lifestyle. Cobian began to use heroin in the early 90's, he claimed to use Herion to calm the pain of his extremely painful stomach disease, that to this day, is unclassified. In 1992, Nirvana released Incesticide and Kurt married the allready pregnant Courtney Love, (their daughter Frances Bean Cobain was born in 1993.) In 1993, Nirvana released In Utero, their most emotional and meaningful album to date. Nirvana later filmed Unplugged for MTV. It was an all acoustic preformance, that inclulded some of Nirvana's smash hits, but most of their lesser known songs, as well as some covers of Nirvana's favorite bands. Unplugged was the last live preformance that Nirvana had before Kurt Cobain died in 1994. Many speculate that Kurts death was suicide, other's blame his wife, Courtney Love, for his murder. Either way, his fans will remember him forever. His music will never die.
Kurt Cobain, in my oppinion is one of the most talented songwriters in music history. His voice is infectious and completely unique. I know that he will never be forgotten.

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.

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.
