However, by the end of the day, Cobain had agreed to undergo a detox program. The staff at the facility were unaware of Cobain's history of depression and prior attempts at suicide. When visited by friends, there was no indication to them that Cobain was in any negative or suicidal state of mind. He spent the day talking to counselors about his drug abuse and personal problems, happily playing with his daughter Frances.
These interactions were the last time Cobain saw his daughter. The following night, Cobain walked outside to have a cigarette and climbed over a six-foot-high fence to leave the facility which he had joked earlier in the day would be a stupid feat to attempt. He took a taxi to Los Angeles Airport and flew back to Seattle. McKagan later stated he knew from "all of my instincts that something was wrong".
On April 2 and 3, Cobain was spotted in numerous locations around Seattle. Cobain was not seen the next day. On April 7, amid rumors of Nirvana breaking up, the band pulled out of the Lollapalooza Music Festival. On April 8,  Cobain's body was discovered at his Lake Washington Boulevard home by electrician Gary Smith,  who had arrived to install a security system. Apart from a minor amount of blood coming out of Cobain's ear, the electrician reported seeing no visible signs of trauma and initially believed that Cobain was asleep until he saw the shotgun pointing at his chin.
A note was found, addressed to Cobain's childhood imaginary friend Boddah, that stated that Cobain had not "felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing A high concentration of heroin and traces of diazepam were also found in his body.
Cobain's body had been lying there for days; the coroner's report estimated Cobain to have died on April 5, at the age of A public vigil was held for Cobain on April 10, , at a park at Seattle Center drawing approximately seven thousand mourners. Love read portions of the suicide note to the crowd, crying and chastising Cobain. Near the end of the vigil, Love distributed some of Cobain's clothing to those who still remained. I remember the day after that I woke up and I was heartbroken that he was gone. I just felt like, "Okay, so I get to wake up today and have another day and he doesn't.
Grohl believed that he knew Cobain would die at an early age, saying that "sometimes you just can't save someone from themselves", and "in some ways, you kind of prepare yourself emotionally for that to be a reality". Once you do that, you can't go wrong, because you can't make any mistakes when people love you for being yourself. But for Kurt, it didn't matter that other people loved him; he simply didn't love himself enough". A final ceremony was arranged for Cobain, by his mother, on May 31, , and was attended by both Love and Tracy Marander.
As a Buddhist monk chanted, daughter Frances Bean scattered Cobain's ashes into McLane Creek in Olympia, the city where he "had found his true artistic muse". Cobain is a well-known member of the 27 Club.
His death has since been a topic of public fascination and debate. According to a spokesperson for the Seattle Police Department, the department receives at least one weekly request, mostly through Twitter, to reopen the investigation, resulting in the maintenance of the basic incident report on file. In March , the Seattle police developed four rolls of film that had been left in an evidence vault—a reason was not provided for why the rolls were not developed earlier.
According to the Seattle police, the 35mm film photographs show the scene of Cobain's dead body more clearly than previous Polaroid images taken by the police. Detective Mike Ciesynski, a cold case investigator, was instructed to look at the film because "it is 20 years later and it's a high media case". Ciesynski stated that Cobain's death remains a suicide and that the images would not have been released publicly. One photo shows Cobain's arm, still wearing the hospital bracelet from the drug rehab facility he checked out of just a few days prior to returning to Seattle.
Another photo shows Cobain's foot resting next to a bag of shotgun shells , one of which was used in his death. Cobain has been remembered as one of the most iconic rock musicians in the history of alternative music. In the intervening decade, Cobain, a small, frail but handsome man in life, has become an abstract Generation X icon, viewed by many as the "last real rock star" [.. The sign was paid for and created by the Kurt Cobain Memorial Committee, a non-profit organization created in May to honor Cobain. On the anniversary of his death, fans gather in the park to celebrate his life and memory.
In , Cobain took the place of Elvis Presley as the top-earning deceased celebrity , after the sale of the Nirvana song catalogue. Presley reclaimed the spot the following year. Controversy erupted in July when a monument to Cobain in Aberdeen along the Wishkah River included the quote " Drugs are bad for you. They will fuck you up".
The city ultimately decided to sandblast the monument to replace the expletive with "f",  but fans immediately drew the letters back in. Lars Ulrich of Metallica reflected on Cobain's influence stating that "with Kurt Cobain you felt you were connecting to the real person, not to a perception of who he was — you were not connecting to an image or a manufactured cut-out. You felt that between you and him there was nothing — it was heart-to-heart.
There are very few people who have that ability". Prior to Cobain's death, Azerrad published Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana , a book chronicling Nirvana's career from its beginning, as well as the personal histories of the band members. The book explored Cobain's drug addiction, as well as the countless controversies surrounding the band.
After Cobain's death, Azerrad republished the book to include a final chapter discussing the last year of Cobain's life. The book is notable, as it involved the band members themselves, who provided interviews and personal information to Azerrad specifically for the book. Though this film does not feature any music by Nirvana, it has songs by the artists that inspired Cobain. He took a film crew to visit a number of people associated with Cobain and Love; Love's father, Cobain's aunt, and one of the couple's former nannies.
Although Hoke claimed he knew who killed Cobain, he failed to mention a name, and offered no evidence to support his assertion. Broomfield inadvertently captured Hoke's last interview, as he died days later, reportedly hit by a train. However, Broomfield felt he had not uncovered enough evidence to conclude the existence of a conspiracy. In a interview, Broomfield summed it up by saying:. I think that he committed suicide. I don't think there's a smoking gun. And I think there's only one way you can explain a lot of things around his death.
Not that he was murdered, but that there was just a lack of caring for him. I just think that Courtney had moved on, and he was expendable. Journalists Ian Halperin and Max Wallace took a similar path and attempted to investigate any possible conspiracy for themselves. Their initial work, the book, Who Killed Kurt Cobain? In , writer Charles R. Cross published a biography of Cobain, titled Heavier Than Heaven. For the book, Cross conducted over interviews, and was given access by Courtney Love to Cobain's journals, lyrics, and diaries. In , Cross published Cobain Unseen: Mosaic of an Artist , a compilation of annotated photographs and creations and writings by Cobain throughout his life and career.
In , a sampling of Cobain's writings was published as Journals. The book fills pages with a simple black cover; the pages are arranged somewhat chronologically although Cobain generally did not date them. The journal pages are reproduced in color, and there is a section added at the back with explanations and transcripts of some of the less legible pages.
The writings begin in the late s and were continued until his death. A paperback version of the book, released in , included a handful of writings that were not offered in the initial release. In the journals, Cobain talked about the ups and downs of life on the road, made lists of what music he was enjoying, and often scribbled down lyric ideas for future reference. Upon its release, reviewers and fans were conflicted about the collection. Many were elated to be able to learn more about Cobain and read his inner thoughts in his own words, but were disturbed by what was viewed as an invasion of his privacy.
In January , Love began to shop the biography Heavier Than Heaven to various movie studios in Hollywood to turn the book into an A-list feature film about Cobain and Nirvana. The inclusion of Cobain as a playable character in the video game, Guitar Hero 5 ,  upset Novoselic and Grohl, who expressed their dismay at the ability of players to use Cobain with any song, including those sung by female vocalists.

Written by Greg Prato, the book explored the history of grunge in detail, touching upon Nirvana and Cobain's life and death via interviews with former bandmates, friends, and various grunge-era contemporaries. A picture of Cobain from the Bleach era is used for the book's front cover, and its title comes from a shirt that Cobain was once photographed wearing.
Grohl and Love accepted the accolade at the ceremony. Soaked in Bleach is a American docudrama directed by Benjamin Statler. The film details the events leading up to the death of Kurt Cobain, as seen through the perspective of Tom Grant, the private detective who was hired by Courtney Love to find Cobain, her husband, shortly before his death in It also explores the premise that Cobain's death was not a suicide. Regarding the depiction of Nirvana, and in particular Kurt Cobain, the indie rock author Andrew Earles wrote:.
Never has a rock band's past been so retroactively distorted into an irreversible fiction by incessant mythologizing, conjecture, wild speculation, and romanticizing rhetoric. The Cobain biographical narrative - specifically in regard to the culturally irresponsible mishandling of subjects such as drug abuse, depression, and suicide - is now impenetrable with inaccurate and overcooked connectivity between that which is completely unrelated, too chronologically disparate, or just plain untrue.

No one did angst better than Cobain. Nirvana was cool. I was a freshman in college when these bands were on the cusp of being big, so we all saw them live in small venues before the trend went nuts. Chicago, we saw Smashing Pumpkins. Omaha had Ritual Device and later The music being played on college radio stations at the time was a counter to the slick-production of hair-metal and soft-rock, mall pop that was happening on mainstream radio.
I enjoyed their music and was a grunge fan, but it was no more than a 36 month fad. More interesting is the huge electronic and European influence on popular music today in the US. Bands like White Lies and Muse…. I guess his death just elevated them to legend status earlier than the others. Kurt Cobain is and will be an inspiration modell…His quotifications rule! I learned about American music culture much later than most people as I was a 9-year-old Israeli-born Canadian immigrant during the rise of the Seattle grunge scene. But instead of following the musical trend that commercial record labels and commercial radio and MTV bullshit that strive to brainwash the masses and keep them going to Wal-Mart like the consumerist sheep they are, I went the opposite way.
Nirvana, as you mentioned correctly, introduced me to underground culture I would not have found out about otherwise. It was through them that I found out about Riot Grrrl music which made become the feminist I am today. Five years ago, I returned to my native land, and stopped listening to commercial radio altoghether. Also, record stores here rarely have any underground material, and second-hand CD stores are hard to find. This is why the internet helps me a lot. So Nirvana is still at the top of my list My attention span is terrible and it took me two days and four tries to read this, but damn am I glad I did.
Great piece. I had a similar take. Good read. I may have to add you to my Google Reader. Musicians fail to stand out these days. People like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are manufactured garbage, on a lower scale than a VH1 one hit wonder and will not be remembered as top artists 20 years from now even by their most adoring fans. People who never liked Nirvana still respect their talent. However, we need to first stop supporting the trash.
As a teenager at the time all to conscious of being bracketed into a movement, I avoided all thing Nirvana which is a great shame as the music was good. Bit I could never forgive grunge for opening the door to everyone my age in relative affluence being on a down. As is inevitably the case, the fans took the point and missed it by a country mile, by imitating and idolising him in another form of conformity. He responded to this by killing himself. I enjoyed your post very much. Our experiences and tastes are nearly identical. Music was my religion then — my identity — and I wore it like a badge of honor.
I feel fortunate to have been a young, music-loving teen at a time when pop music was switching gears so dramatically. I wish I had more time to seek it out. Thanks so much to all the thoughtful comments. I could be wrong though. And although the tunes they produced were catchy, they were nonetheless falling into the category of generic and simple. It is a hard truth to realize there will never be another band like The Beatles of Pistols again, but maybe that is what makes those artists so incredibly embedded in our inspiration, or perhaps it mystifies them even more.
With that said, the only thing we can hope for is an artist to turn this generation around. We all surely need a musical movement to wake us up…. The mainstream is always full of garbage music, but every once in a while, something good like Nirvana or R. But come on, man, there is a ton of fantastic music being made right now.

The commodification of music into individual digital files has diluted its impact, maybe, but not its quality. There has to be. The state of music, or to clarify, alt. We should praise Kurt Cobain in retrospect just for the fact that his band killed the likes of Great White, Warrant and Loverboy. But again, I was listening to R. But none the less, Excellent writing…. I love Nirvana. I truly enjoyed this article. Cobain: Pathetic talentless whining loser, who orphaned his kids so they could be raised by his skank.
And if she had not killed him or had him killed he would have still been alive to take care of Francis and continue to bless us with his musical genius. It is a shame that mental illness gets treated so poorly. Kurt had serious mental issues that he was trying to deal with but it was all too much for him to deal with it alone. Everyone around him had a hand in pushing him outside of himself and he was doing the best he could to deal with it. I see it as a glorious re-shaping of a tired and loveless industry.
Just look at the slow-burn cult success of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea — if that fantastic record had been a mainstream success unlikely! And look at Amanda Palmer and her amazing non-mainstream, but still seriously impressive success. It is because of the crap on the radio now about which you are totally correct that I have returned to my own roots and am exploring older music to find new inspiration. Gaga is too commercialized for my liking while Pink does whatever the hell she wants. Then you have bands still around like the Goo Goo Dolls.
I give John Rzeznik credit—he knows how to write lyrics in such a way that he twists the mind and makes one think if they listen hard enough. Thank God they grew up. I think it was sad that nobody mentioned Alanis Morrissette. That woman still delivers a punch when she writes a lyric. He had much more left to give, I think. Too many damned people are joining that forever 27 shit right now. I miss Sublime too. When I think of Nirvana I remember all those days 4 years back when I was just discovering music for what it was.
I never really got a chance to see Led Zeppelin release an album and Kurt Cobain died before I was 4 years old. Music, good music, came to me by mistake. Now I owe Kurt Cobain more than just my teen angst. Once something goes mainstream its meaning changes. Poor Kurt wanted to be as popular as the Melvins and respected by the thin strand of artists he admired.
Thank you, Kurt Cobain for what you once did. Nirvana is not art! Nirvana is sociology and anti -politics. From record stores. FM radio was still relevant then as well. The internet was in its infancy. It is now an endless musical revolution! Like this:LikeBe the first to like this post.
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and feel so lucky to have witnessed it the way I did. Do not be deceived or get caught up in this sad state of human existence. It is true, music has an impact and it resonates, it transforms and moves people. I am sure that if I were to ask anyone out there if they wanted someone to tell them the truth or a lie, they would pick truth over lies anytime, right? You will be changed, transformed and moved when you open your eyes to the truth:.
Hmmm…so, eh, you have the truth there, partner? Though I myself had multiple tracks from Nevermind killer post BTW running through my head I was somehow focused on the sound that this drizzle made […]. While I have no doubt that Brit Pop had little cultural relevance across the pond it was huge in the UK and I would argue that it was a much bigger monster than Grunge.
The Nevermind album was played to death in my bedroom and definitely had a profound influence on my music making. Although I welcome the ease at which you can find new music on the WWW, I also mourn the loss of those hours spent flicking through albums in the local independent music store before ordering some bizarre cd none of my mates had heard of and waiting 5 weeks for it to be imported from the States. Halcyon days. Oasis has definitely had staying power. Everytime I hear the Brothers Gallagher I close my eyes and am transported back to a much simpler even though much more intense time in my life.
When everything was new. Brilliant post. Great post today thanks. You have a great blog here. I really enjoyed reading it today thanks again for sharing. Sadly, I agree with you. First, to be a successful band, back in the day you went on the road, you recorded your own music , maybe even printed your own vinyl.
Oh Well, Whatever, Nevermind (Kurt Cobain Reconsidered) – Biblioklept
There was a lot of legwork and, well, actual work. I think that maybe people are simultaneously too connected and too distant, maybe too isolated to form some kind of distinct counterculture? There is also the question of what to do next. I also think that the current generation must lack creativity and spirit. Maybe people get bored too easily. To write angry rebellious songs, from Bob Dylan to X, you have to care. You have to be pissed off about inequality, racism, sexism, gender roles, corrupt politicians, pollution Against All Authority even railed against strontium , poverty….
Of course, there probably is a lot of decent underground rock out there, gone unheard even with the internet unless you live in Chicago or Portland or etc. I have two recommendations: Muse and Gossip. To me it seems like everything has generally sucked since Nirvana. For real…soul. It was their heart that was on those tracks, and that is what I feel that we are so desperately trying to find again.
I do feel that we have many revolutions to come, but the form in which they are transmitted and received will certainly be different. After all, people still buy vinyl and cds just to have liner notes and hold the disc in their hands. Or is it as simple as doing what you like and not caring what others say? Nirvana, if anything, shows us this. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to know so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
