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.

Kurt Cobain completely revolutionized Grunge with his inspirational music style and hit singles such as "Smells like Teen Spirit", "Lithium", and "Come as you are". Alongside Krist Novoselic (bassist) and Dave Grohl (drummer), he formed the band Nirvana. You will Never see or hear of any band like Nirvana. They were one of a kind. Kurt Cobain was one of a kind. Some even consider him to be God.
To this day he lives on in his eternal legacy as one of history's greatest singers/songwriters.

R.I.P. Kurt Cobain
1967-1994

You will live on in our hearts and minds forever
Guy 1: Dude, Nirvana is on tour and their coming here tonight! I have an extra ticket to their concert and your coming with me.

Guy 2: Ouch, I can't. I have to babysit my kid brother tonight.

Guy 1: Dude, it's Nirvana. You have to go.

Guy 2: yeah, your right. I don't know what I was thinking to actually miss watching Kurt Cobain sing live...wait here while I go get my jacket.

The ultimate icon. A tormented soul and loving father who never wanted to be famous. He was Nirvana's frontman and had a beautifully haunting voice. Just check out 'Heart Shaped Box' and 'All Apologies' if you don't believe me.

He was a lovely looking man too. He didn't deserve Courtney Love as she's just a skanky ho. Oh well, at least he got a kid out of her. Thank god Frances Bean looks more like her dad than her mum!

He took his own life on April 5th, 1994. R.I.P Kurt. We miss you very much.
Some people reckon Kurt Cobain was murdered but that's rubbish. The only reason people say that is because they don't want to believe that their 'hero' put a gun against his head and pulled the trigger. He killed himself. Get over it.

I hate the way people talk about Kurt as if he's still alive. He's dead and he's not coming back. Deal with it.
