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.

All bands are overrated by their most passionate fans. Beautiful AND talented people in the music industry are overrated all the time considering that ugly and talented people aren't as popular. Dead artists' creations are also easily overrated due to the limited production possibilities among other things.
But just because KURT COBAIN may be an artist who is so easy to overrate doesn't mean that he wasn't an EXTREMELY good songwriter, musician and artist. The fact that he died under such tragic circumstances (whatever the reason was) naturally lead to publicity which meant that even more people got to know of Nirvana's existence but publicity alone creates no new fans. The music actually has to be good for people to listen to it. People who have NOT listened to Kurt's music have no right or possibility to know exactly WHY others do listen to Nirvana but to assume it's because of the "coolness-factor", which many seem to do, is really naive. Nirvana has not been "cool" for a very long time because according to mainstream-belief mainstream-music cannot possibly be neither cool nor good. And I'd say that Nirvana, despite its non-mainstream genre and image, can be classified as quite a mainstream-band (thinking of numbers, hits, sold albums etc). Only insecure, unopinionated, dumb people listen to music to achieve some certain kind of status.
The reasons for loving or hating Kurt himself (or even worse: Courtney Love) on the other hand, seem much more superficial and badly argued than those for loving the music and are often based only on the image of him/her created by the media.
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint:
Let those who have heard only "Smells like teen spirit" and "Come as you are" love them if they want to. Why should it bother people, it's that person who is missing out on the best music that the 90's had to offer, and that's punishment enough.
2 Kurt Cobain: Your music will live forever. I love it. I love it.

The great frontman for a great band, Nirvana. Was made a legend, whether he liked it or not. Excellent songwriter, nice guy, ok singer, ok guitarist. He in the end was driven to suicide by the strains on his shy, reserved personality that the rock-god life had.
Seriously, stop worshipping the man. He just wanted people to leave him to live a happy life, to not be stalked by fans and paparazzi 24/7. He wasn't "perfect." He had severe drug problems, which probably contributed to his suicide. There was his dumb feud with Axl Rose. And he wasn't a "prophet." He didn't view himself as one.
RIP Kurt Cobain. You will be missed.

one of the greatest musicians of all time, whos life was cut WAY too short because of his wife Courtney Love, who was mad because he was divorcing her and taking her out of his will. She should have been the one to die, shes worthless anyways.
