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.

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 last most important musician of the generation. Frontman of the rock band Nirvana. His songs touched souls, and still do today. He will always be remembered.

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.
Kurt Cobain was the singer of Nirvana.
