Kurt Cobain was the singer and guitarist for 90's icon band Nirvana which released three studio albums, Bleach (1989), Nevermind (1991) and In Utero (1993). Heavy heroin addict and fairly average guitarist, however his wailing, husky voice and highly poetic and symbolic lyrics defined Nirvana as the definitive 'grunge' band of the 90's, which despite what many people believe they did NOT invent, grunge having its roots back in 80's hardcore punk, and the term itself being coined by Green River and later Mudhoney frontman Mark Arm, who described the style as "pure grunge, pure shit".

Cobain was underweight and of below average height (5'7 tall and 130 pounds), and (usually) wore his hair long with a 'designer stubble' style of beard. His hair however was also dyed numerous exotic colours, such as bright red and blue, at various times.

It can be argued that part of Cobain's continuing legacy is his rough good looks and 'everyman' quality. He was an outspoken critic of homophobia, sexism, racism etc., even going as far as to say "If you are either a racist, sexist, or in any other way an asshole, don't buy our albums. I don't want your money. Don't love me because I hate you."

Kurt Cobain died after battling lifelong depression on April 4th, 1994 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was 27. His suicide note was addressed to "Boddah", an imaginary childhood friend his parents invented for him to help him cope with his uncle being drafted during the Vietnam War.

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.

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 was the leader, singer, guiterist, and songwritter for Nirvana. He inspired millions of teens and spoke to our souls. He had a true talent and it was a huge loss when he was murdered so young in life.
