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 frontman, singer and truly poetic songwriter of Nirvana. Died April 5th 1994. They can say it was a suicide or a drug overdose, but people still believe that it was Courtney Love that commited the crime... Or had something to do with it.

R.I.P. KURT COBAIN.
(Kurdt)
n. Kurt Cobain will forever rest in peace.

cobain was the lead singer and guitarist of the seattle grunge band nirvana. kurt was a musical genius and nirvanas music is either looked at as a work of art by many or a pathetic attempt at music to some. but to no matter from which side nirvanas music is viewed, it is agreed that there was immense talent. cobain commited suicide in spring of 94 and left behind his wife courtney love and one daughter. kurts death shook fans to the core and grieved people from columnists at rolling stone to people like myself. to put his death into perspective, it was john lennons death of the 90's
Puddle of Mud's lead singer, Wesley Scatlin is almost a carbon copy of Kurt Cobain- sharing physical and musical simmalarities

Someone whose head explodes due to a shotgun blast fired from the hands of Courtney Love(See deranged.).
Man, I saw Courtney Love in a crackhouse and feared she'd turn me into a Kurt Cobain.

The seat calling similar to Right nut/Left Nut, not bitch, or shotgun. Calling Kurt Cobain replaces Right Nut as it is the seat behind the shotgun.
Person 1: I got shotty!
Person 2: Kurt Cobain
Person 3: left nut!
Person 4: Shit, I hate sitting in the middle
