We'll just skip over the fact she was hiring a divorce attorney and her own lawyer found a sheet of paper that Courtney used for hand writing practice with letters that matched the suicide note. Yep.. Let's not go there

Kurt wasn’t a saint, heck no one really is a saint, he was just someone who couldn’t find himself out of the dark. He will always be an idol and remembered by the music he made. I hope he has finally rested wherever he is now. All anyone can say is thank you for making music that people can escape to and that we miss you Kurt.

Sometimes rehab just doesn't work for people, but that doesn't mean they should give up on seeking help.

This should be called "the official story of Kurt Cobain's death" not the true story. The truth is far stranger.

3 days later?! No one could find Kurt Freaking Cobain in HIS OWN house for 3 days? thats sounds very sus

Kurt: I feel good today I'm looking forward to the next tour.

Can we get a ‘How it was’ for Layne Staley ? That’s another very sad story and he also died the same day as Kurt 8 years apart
Anthony Tolentino Strike
Anthony Tolentino Strike:
Love how he said Kurt died at the peak of his career and then a few minutes later mentions that the band was losing their popularity. Love the vid tho don’t get me wrong
Charlie Dallachie
Charlie Dallachie:
It is kinda strange how he decided to shoot himself when a heroine overdose by itself would do the job. Let alone a more peaceful and less gruesome way out.

Nirvana and kurt gave me something I felt like I could relate to in the times I felt utterly alone, I’ve always been a very sensitive person and grunge has helped me through the darkest of the dark times In my life, love for all those feeling alone.

His uncle's did not commit suicide! One of them dropped a gun in a bar and it went off and the other I don't remember but that was courtney's lies

Kurt was full of so much rage and anger that he never learnt how to get out. I believe his anger and rage caused his stomach problems as well, it’s obvious that if your walking around internalising all emotions and pushing that anger down it’s gonna make you sick .Playing live helped him to a point but can only do so much. Heroin helps you forget it and dulls it but brings other problems. Courtney would of made his anger worse and his jealousy was part of pulling the trigger. He needed to get out of the music business for a couple of years, spilt from Courtney , get some kind of help, do something? Like Dylan when he had that motorcycle crash he went and sorted himself out, Bowie Berlin to a extent,Lennon the house husband. But his life was so chaotic it seems like he never even had time to think and imagine Courtney around making everything so much worse, then having a baby which was not exactly good timing, I don’t feel like Krist or Dave behaved good either basically judging him badly even getting upset bout Kurt wanting more songwriting royalties which is ridiculous as Nirvana was completely all Kurts baby down to the videos and artwork and you can see the guilt in them to this day. It’s barbaric how people treat people with addiction issues like there bad people 😂. It’s all so sad really coz he was a musical genius and new his rock n roll like Gandhi knows bare feet. He also seemed a good person and very very human and wanted things to be better . RIP Kurt ✌️

you get A LOT of facts wrong in your "this is how it was" videos! one of the 2 who "committed suicide" wasn't an Uncle, but a Grandfather, a cop, who mistakingly dropped his pistol in a bar which misfired & killed him - he didn't kill himself!!

Kurt killed at 27 and FBI released files 27 years after his death. What a coincidence!

I remember only learn about his music after he died. It's a very sad thing. This goes to show the nuclear family is vital for the mental health of a child.

RIP to one of the most vulnerable, genius, one of a kind artists that’s ever lived. I consider myself Lucky and honored to have walked the earth at the same time as Kurt.
Hopefully hes free of all of his problems on the other side.
We miss you, Kurt
Kevin Muzer
Kevin Muzer:
He had real bad stomach ulcers. The Heroin was the only drug that seemed to subdue that pain. Ultimately fame and the rest of his story was a recipe for disaster! Side note: he was very pro female. That's why Nirvana chose all female vocalists to sing his songs at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Induction. Peace/Kurt Cobain 1967-1994. Artist 😎
Paul Joseph
Paul Joseph:
“There’s not much more to add.” BS. Courtney publicly was jealous of Kurts success. They were about to get divorced and the prenup would’ve been void. The amount of heroine he had in his body would have made it impossible to write the note or even handle the gun. He bought flowers on his credit card AFTER he died. In essence, there’s plenty more to add and the conspiracy theories aren’t far fetched at all.

3 times the lethal amount of heroin in his body, courtney being friends with the coroner, his hair splayed out in a position which appears as though he was dragged out, yea lets skip over all that

the errors, omissions, unsourced opinions and misinformation is tragic. HIs dignity is obliterated with videos such as this. The ignorance and down right lies are infuriating to those who know the facts, not to mention the truth. Really very unfortunate.

"Drank his favorite beer?" It is well known that a can of Barq's Root Beer was found in the greenhouse and it contained valium. Valium was found in Kurt's system. This Valium will multiply the three times lethal amount (also found in his system) into an even deadlier mixture, tolerance notwithstanding. Kurt would not have been able to roll down his sleeves and put the empty needles away. He would not have been able to open his mouth and then pull a trigger. Also: Love the graphics in your video-

Many people need a vocal coach to sing certain techniques without hurting their vocal and throat. Kurt knows all the skills and techniques without a coach nor had he any formal musical training. Pure talent. Pity, he left us so early. :(

i really resonate with kurt’s feeling of not wanting to leave anywhere without the assurance of drugs with him. it’s like wondering how you can even function long enough without losing your shit. feeling hopeless. sometimes i avoid going places all together due to that.

Then she turned around and dated Elliot Smith and then he somehow stabbed himself in the chest and died. Lol who picks that as a way to go? who knows. Seems like the only rockstar she dated who DIDNT kill himself was Billy Corgan, and that was very very short lived. Probably why he survived lmao

To me, the conspiracy theories fall down when you learn that the weapon was purchased just days before but Kurt's friend. He was in the car and provided the cash to purchase it. It is hard to reconcile that fact with somebody else being the shooter.

Kurt is a paradox, on the one hand he epitomizes a passionate angst but on the other a crippling nihilism

Thank you! I'm so tired of all the conspiracy theorists out there on the videos about Kurt Cobain. They don't want to hear these facts. They're so stubborn, as if people don't kill themselves... All the signs were there. One glaring thing missing from the video was the depressing lyrics on his last album with Nirvana. You could tell what was going through his mind.

The last message Kurt left the world was :-
"If you are in a bad/abusive relationship, and are afraid of what your partner might do if you leave them? please, please, please try and seek some professional help, because what appears to be the easy way out at the time - is not always the best solution, for anyone"
C H

I dont disagree with the message.

However, I'm not a fan of concrete ideas about Kurt. When I picture him, I think he had either made a very rash decision too quickly. Or had been depressed for a long long time and fame hit him hard

what about the interviews in 1994 where he says he's been sober for a year since his stomach operation and that he doesn't need drugs anymore? or the fact that his "suicide note" was a letter to his fans about leaving Nirvana and starting a solo career? nobody talks about these things and that is why i believe the murder theories more than the media narrative

1:40 I'm pretty sure both of his uncles didn't commit suicide, in "Soaked In Bleach" they debunked it.

In Cross` book he describes how Kurt took what he needed to the greenhouse including some towels (for whoever to mob up the blood?). Pretty considerate. Not something a killer would contemplate. The guy wanted out, and instead of risking surviving yet another OD, he thought to do it `properly`.
HeROsiNhEaVeN
HeROsiNhEaVeN:
I know you put a lot of work in to this....and it shows 👍🏻 but one important factor that you left out was the intervention he got at his house from Courtney and her band and from friends whom which were all on HERION themselves at the time....this was when he agreed to go to rehab, but from what I read this did not go over well with him, it was probably a rude awakening and possibly pushed him over the edge....just my opinion tho...no matter what “ always R.I.P the great Kurt Cobain “.....he lives on in his beautiful music forever....🙏🏻
