She didn't murder him, he was a loser who couldn't handle life.
his "everyone who does drugs ends in ruins... except me" attitude is pretty sad, especially with hindsight
There are plenty of functional lifelong junkies. They're called doctors.
I appreciate his facing "image" versus his actual self and sometimes not getting that they are often the same.
Something Michael Jackson got swamped by.
The world owes Kurt's rotting corpse a gigantic thank you for destroying glam rock in the 90s.
Since no one else will one star this I will, because even after all these years people still get fucking ridiculous over the topic of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. I rather sit in a room full or screaming old women while they fan themselves watching a fat Elvis impersonator do his thing over listen to people go on about he "revolution" that was Kurt Cobain.
It was a 'revolution' (not that I've ever heard anyone who liked his music call it that) because the scene it was part of killed of the leotard wearing, hairspray and moon boots glam metal scene that was right before it. A year or two before it, heavy metal was Poison. Queensryche. Whitesnake. People debated whether it was ok to let their children listen to Stryper until the TV told them it was devil music too.
Maybe you are too young, or stupid, to remember that. Or maybe you just miss your glory days.
I'd argue Nirvana got the closest anyone has been to the Beatles, just in terms of right place at the right time/popularity and influence.
Though for the simple fact that Kurt wore a Daniel Johnston shirt in a photo shoot, causing a major label bidding war over Daniel Johnston (who was in a mental hospital at the time), I think is hilarious.
Kurt Cobain and Nirvana embody that embarrassing aspect of American culture that thinks apathy and laziness were admirable traits.

I presume he doesn't talk about his music being shitty and overrated.
