Today is Kurt Cobain’s birthday. The Nirvana frontman was born on this day in 1967, which would would make him 46 years old, had he not committed suicide. He died on April 5, 1994, at the height of his career, and fans have not forgotten the mark he made on music when he was here.
He has managed to make his way into the Twitter Trends today, and even Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has tweeted out a quote:
“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.”—Kurt Cobain

Dude I’ve always been so intrigued with Kurt Cobain’s taste in music. Like his obsession with The Melvins always had me interested

Kurt Cobain would have been 46 years old today. That’s the same age as Paul Giamatti and Louie CK.

1994 was the worst year in music. Kurt Cobain died and Justin Bieber was born.
