Kurt Cobain Biography ( )


Kurt Donald Cobain was the leader of Nirvana,the multiplatinum gruge

bandthat redefined the soud of the ninetiens.


Cobain was born on the 20th of February 1967 in Hoquaim, a small town

140 kilometres south-west of Seattle.


His mother was a cocktail waitress and his fatherwas an auto mechanic.

Cobain soon moved to nearby Aberdeen, a depressed and dyinglogging town.


Cobain was for for most his childhood a sickly bronchitic child. Matter

were made worse when Cobains parents divorsed when he was seven and by

his own account Cobain said he never felt loved or secure again. He

became increasingly difficult, anty-socisl and withdrawn after his

parents divorce. Cobain also said that his parents traumatic split

fueled a lot of the anguish in Nirvanas music.


After his parents divorse Cobain found himself shuttled back and forth

between various relatives and at one stage homeless living under a



When Cobain was eleven he heard and was captivated by the Britains Sex

Pistols and after their self-destruction Cobain and friend Krist

Novoselic continued to listen to the wave of British bands including Joy

Division the nihilistic post-punk band that some say Nirvana are

directly and iconoclastic attitude didnt win many friends in high

school and sometimes earned him beatings from jocks Cobain got even

by spray painting QUEER on their pick-up trucks. By 1985 Aberdeen was

dead and Cobains next stop was Olympia. Cobain fomed and reormed a

series of bands before Nirvana came to be in 1986. Nirvana was an

uneasyaiiiance between Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic and eventually

drummer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Grohl.


By 1988 Nirvana were doing shows and had demo tapes going around. In

1989 Nirvana recorded their rough-edged first album Bleach for local

Seattle independent label Sub-Pop.


In Britain Nirvana received a lot of recognition and in 1991 their

contract was bought out by Geffen, they signed to the mega-label, the

first nonmainstream band to do so. Two and a half years after Nirvanas

first C.D. Bleach was released they realesd Nevermind, a series of

different, crunching, screaming song that along with its first single

Smells Like Teem Spirit would propel Nirvana to mainstream stardom.


Smells Like Teen Spirit became Nirvanas most highly acclaimed and

instantly song. Not many people can decipher its exact lyrics but

Cobain used a seductive hookline to hook the listener. Nevermind went on

to sell ten million copies and make a reported $550 million (US) leaving

Nirvana overnight millionaires. Cobain was shoked at the reception of

his highly personal and passionate music repeatendly telling reporters

that none of the bamd ever, ever expected anything like this. It quikly

become obvious that the obsessively sickly and sensitive 24yr old was

not going to cope well with the rocknroll lifestyle. If there was a

rock star 101 course, Id really have like to take it, Cobain
