Kurt Cobain, rest well… where ever you are.
Cobain was, to me, the epitome of grunge music, which became popular in the later days of my high school career. I never found Nirvana’s music to be terribly original, or revolutionary, but I connected with it. I identified with it. That’s what made it important to me then, and makes it still important to me now.
Nothing really expresses the angry period that I went through during 1991-1993 better than Nirvana.
Update: This is a far more appropriate and beautiful tribute to Kurt Cobain than the one above, and is a must read.
