If Kurt Cobain Was Still Alive, He Would've Turned 51 Today

Submitted by: littlemissqt 9 months ago in Lifestyle


Here's some home footage of Cobain taken by Courtney Love while they were living in a crappy little apartment in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. You can even even spend the night there through AirBnB or just drive by and check the place out (it's at 448 North Spaulding Avenue, Los Angeles, Ca 90036). Fun fact: He wrote a lot of In Utero there, and wrote Heart-Shaped Box in the bathroom.

Side Question: Where were you when you heard Cobain killed himself? And did he kill himself, or was it Courtney Love?

Inside the apartment:

I was listening to KZOK at work when the electrician that found him called in to say he found Kurt dead. It was so fucked up. I can't believe the electrician did that to Kurt's family. What a total douchebag.

If Kurt Cobain were alive today I still wouldn't have heard any of his songs.

I was never a fan so when the story broke it wasn't a thing for me.  I do remember seeing it on MTV though when they were broadcasting live from the scene.  

I also remember people losing their shit over it, some still do.

Side note, the wife and I went as Kurt and Courtney one year to an Undead Halloween party long ago.  I brought a toy shotgun and she brought a bent spoon.

Who cares?  Seriously they had ONE good album.  Completely overhyped.

I respectfully disagree.

While 'Nevermind' is the usual fan favourite, I actually prefer the less polished, more raw 'Bleach' - true grunge.

there is a great documentary called "soaked in bleach" that delves into this very question. i had always thought kurt had indeed killed himself. that is, until i watched this documentary, now i think courtney did it or had it done

jarred There is no way that Courtney Love could have had any sort of success if not for riding on his dead coattails. A nasty cunt with a band named "hole"? Yeah someone has to die for anyone to pay any attention to that bullshit.
