Born: 1967-02-20 - Died: 1994-04-05
Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Kurt Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home, after apparently shooting himself in the head with a shotgun. A suicide note was found at the place. That's the official version, but there are other versions of his death. Some think he was murdered.

Who was Kurt Donald Cobain : Kurt Cobain was the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the Seatlle-based band Nirvana and husband of Hole frontwoman Courtney Love.

Cobain formed Nirvana back in 1987 with Krist Novoselic in their home state of Washington. Within a very short time span the band became a fixture in the up and coming grunge scene.

In 1991 Nirvana released "Smells Like Teen Spirit", the song marked the dawning of a new age for rock music and the death of glam metal, arena rock, and hair bands. Eventually the song would become known as the "anthem-of-a-generation". You can check out the video for "smeels like teen spirit below".

  40. anonymous Says:

    You and your music are greatly respected and will be greatly missed.

  41. 90's teen Says:

    There is no way Kurt could of picked up the shotgun. When his body was found Kurt was wearing boots and a shirt that was button on his wrist. The heroin he took would made Kurt pass out. The doors to the green house can only be locked from the Outside. Kurt had a stool held against the doors. when the Police came in the stool was busted. Someone was in that room to pull the trigger of the shotgun wipe his finger prints off and used Kurt’s Prints. Kurts CC was being used the time after his death but was stop when his body was found. R.I.P Kurt Cobain.

  61. dopey Says:

    Kurt Cobain was a modern day jesus christ,
    and inspired many to think more about the world around them and showed us how music and words can allow you to express,feel and experience more than you would rehaps normaly.
    His life and music taught everyone somthing valuable, you cant buy happyness, the biggest loser walking the earth can be the coolest and wisest man alive, be careful what you wish for!
    the thing I liked most about him is his honesty and the fact he just didnt give a F***!! lol 😀 RIP kurt…..

  67. Kurt Was Murdered Says:

    Everyone knows Courtney killed him to inherit his money. He was divorcing her and she’d signed a prenuptial agreement which would’ve denied her Kurt’s millions so she hired a hitman to murder him. I fucking hate her and hope Courtney dies slowly of AIDS. RIP Kurt, we know the truth.

  68. Brendon Says:

    You’re always going to be beautiful and missed. I love you, Kurdt. Thanks for the beautiful gifts you’ve given this world.
