Kurt Cobain Dead

Kurt Cobain was a musician, songwriter and artist. His claim to fame was being the vocalist of the band Nirvana.

Cobain was known for writing songs about gender equality and the end of racism and homophobia. While his chosen genre is alternative music, his message touches all.

His songs "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Come As You Are" are still being played on the radio to this day. Kurt Cobain is listed as the 12th greatest guitarist of all time by the Rolling Stones Magazine.

Like many other brilliant musicians, Cobain was persecuted throughout his career. His vocal support for black people and homosexuals made him the target of white conservatives.

It didn't help that he was fighting a losing war with drugs and depression.

Cobain was suicidal. He checked in and out of rehab during the last days of his life, but in the end, death won over. He was found lifeless at his Washington Lake Home with a bullet in his head. He died at the age of 27.
