    Well, if he were alive, today (February 20th, 2007) would be his 40th Birthday.

    Since he was a big musical influence in the 90's, and a big part of my childhood, I felt I should pay my respects

    Here is a little article on it - http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/entertainment/music-gigs/features/article2287758.ece

    Also, 15 years ago today (February 20th, 1992), "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    Thank God for Nirvana

          Y'no,Kurt didn't even want Smells Like Teen Spirit to be on the album,let alone the top single.

          Wow,i miss him.

            I too thought Kurt was pretty cool.

            Of all people, my church going, middle class, sober mom told me about Nirvana. She said "A lot of people try to sound dark and depressed, but these guys do it the right way." She had just finalized a pretty terrible divorce with my alcoholic father, so she was pretty drawn to that music. She now doesn't listen to rock music of any sort.

            Anyways, I always thought he was this great innovator, and he was, but not to the degree that most people, at least I, thought. Turns out when he wrote "Smells Like Teen Spirit" he admited he was trying to write a song that sounded like a Pixies song. (For those that do not know, Ilikethepixies likes the pixies.) Furthermore, his whole career focused around blending together the sounds of two of his favorite bands: The Melvins and the Pixies. I'm not trying to discredit him, because he wrote some really great music.

            I really like Bleach and Incesticide (Their B-sides and oddities collection) because it seems like he was a little bit more himself on these. Nevermind seems a bit... I don't know... shiny and polished. In Utero is just painful... just the death rattles of a man in insane depression. (I still love these albums).

              Yes. Kurt has a place in music history that has been untouched by anyone.

                    Wow, I didn't know Kurt Cobain was born in 1967. I thought he was born in the early 70s, but oh well.

                    Happy birthday and RIP Kurt.

                        Nevermind was the first CD I ever got (and I still have it! ...And in awesome condition!) and I enjoyed every bit of it. It's a shame what happened to Kurt Cobain. He indeed was a genius and was ahead of his time. Geniuses like him come only once in a while.

                        There was Jim Henson, too. I miss him just as much because he was nothing short of a Genius who told great stories through his puppet antics.

                            That's not just a horrible typo but a horrible and tasteless joke. That's just sad.

                                    It would help if I was the one who wrote that, which I wasn't, and might I add that when you try to flame and bait people you're only making yourself look foolish. See my G.I. Joe S.L.A.M. thread for further details.
