Let's see...
He was a worthless drug addict.
He wasn't all that great at guitar.
I've seen several definitions reffering to him as "the greatest musician ever" or "the greatest song writer ever"..
let's look at the facts shall we?
Many other bands have started Genre's.
are they hailed as the greatest bands ever? no.
Iron Maiden was one of the most influential bands in thrash metal, and they defined the sound of a genre. are they hailed as Gods? no.
Pink Floyd was argueably one of the most influential bands of our time. For god's sake, even KorN covered them. but are they hailed as God's again? no
the greatest songwriter of all time eh?
Are we to throw away Bob Dylan or Johnny cash for some heroin addict?
and his meager guitar playing skills?
Smells like teen spirit chorus is 4 power chords, 'nuff said.
Guy 1: oh man, I'm so anti-establishment, I listen to Nirvana, Kurt is amazing, he roxxxxorz your soxxxxorz lol, he like totally expresses my lyf in general, I am so sad
Guy 2- No, your a pathetic moron who thinks he's cool. Kurt wasn't good, and frankly, I'm glad he's dead.

A self-absorbed, emersed in emotional turmoil but creative somewhat enlighten indivisual. He was a visionary in his field and could of accomplish great things if he would of use his life for self-accutlization instead of realizeing nobody could ever understand him or love him for who he really was. Admired for being original and innovative and a true maverick revolutionlizing rock as we know it but hated by judgemental racist conservatives who just misunderstood him. Also for those nutjobs who keep saying he dident kill himself but was murdered is like those people who say tupac is still alive which I belive he is. I know Kurt Cobain killed himself because we have the same personality traits INFj with a 4w5 and I want to kill myself all the time
Paul: Kurt Cobain was legend to bad he was murdered

Jon: Your to shallow and narrow minded to see Kurts true pain and why he killed himself

Paul: huh

Jon: you stupid nutjob. Terms you understand owwww cry cry boom.

Paul: Why Kurt!!! Why

Dead lead singer of Nirvana, also sometimes known as "Kurdt" or "the worst songwriter of all time". He was dirty, ugly, talentless and wrote horrifyingly terrible songs.

Even after Kurt did the world a favor and killed himself in 1994, many people continue to worship him as God (see also Necrophilia). Many 16-year-old girls and emo fucktards have Kurt icons. Magazines such as Rolling Stone have even named Kurt one of the top 20 guitarists of all time, even though Kurt never actually learned how to play the guitar and just punched it a lot.
He's dead, get over it.

What has more brains than Kurt Cobain?
The wall behind him

Get it? He blew his brains out with a shotgun

Frontman of the vastly overhyped Grunge Band Nirvana. His songwriting style was nonsensical and incoherent. He was -not- a good guitarist. He used 3 or 4 four guitar chords for every song, buried under half a dozen guitar effects. Having witnessed and heard enough truly talented musicians play, one can plainly see that Kurt Cobain's skills were minimal at best. As it is, the only reason Kurt Cobain and Nirvana are so highly regarded is because Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. This will automatically inflate ANY singer/musician/songwriter's popularity, and cause their actual talent to be greatly exaggerated, as is the case with Kurt Cobain.

Nirvana was a -decent- band, with their ability exaggerated after the suicide of its frontman. That's all.
"Nirvana's songs don't make any sense!"

"Kurt Cobain wan't THAT good of a guitarist..."
