20 Things You Didn’t Know About Kurt Cobain


He quoted Neil Young in his suicide note

One of the final lines of Kurt’s suicide note was “It’s better to burn out than to fade away,” a lyric from Neil Young’s “My My Hey Hey (Into The Black).” The fact that Kurt did that had a profound effect on Neil, who in turn dedicated his ’94 album Sleeps With Angels to Kurt.

    Can’t wait to know the secrets of Kurt! I think he is very introvert and don’t like to say much about own self so it’s very thrilling to get some clues about his personality. Though I’m too late to give wish Kurt but lots of good wishes for this mysterious guy and thanks for the exploration.

    listen, pigeonplanes pieces of shit: all this bs here isn’t truth. Kurt never slept under no bridge. You can see ppl from other bands denying this. This is bs u copy pasta from the bs written about him over the years.

    I am not even a huge Nirvana fan and I knew all this stuff. They don’t even mention that the last song Nirvana released before Kurt died was called “I Hate Myself and I Want To Die”. It was on the Beevis and Butthead compilation album.

  • Whatevs

    Actually, it was You Know You’re Right. The last song they ever recorded.

  • brownman5000!!!

    Why dont you kill yourself and ask Kurt yourself about these things. I think he might know. He was there.

  • agraciotti

    humm…ok, but really, is there any living soul who doesn’t know about these things?

  • townshend

    Frances looks terrified in the fetus picture.

    She said BEFORE KURT DIED. “You Know You’re Right” wasn’t released until like 8 years after he was dead.

    What Lola said was “released” before he died, not the last song they recorded. Releasing and recording are very different things.

  • Hoho1234

    You Know You’re Right was indeed the last song they recorded, but released after he died. “I Hate Myself and I Want To Die” was recorded and the last song to be released before he died.

  • Hoho1234

    No. Just stop using the site.

    I like Nirvana but Guns N Roses are a 100 times better than Nirvana.
