Ever wonder if Kurt Cobain would like the Foo Fighters? Now we finally know!!!

Some of us wondered if Kurt Cobain would have liked the Foo Fighters. Some of us speculated that he wouldn’t like them ’cause of his punk background and some of us speculated that he would love them. Turns out that Kurt ended up loving the Foo Fighters. Kurt heard an early demo of the Foo Fighters back in the days when it was just Dave in the band (NOTE: The Foo Fighters started off as a one man band at the time). Kurt loved the demo, loved the demo a bit too much that is. If Kurt was still alive today, I’m sure he would have continued to support the Foo Fighters.

I thought this was an interesting story so I thought it was worth posting here.

People showing more compassion to the Robin Williams suicide than Kurt Cobain’s???

This the public’s response to the Kurt Cobain suicide: “What he did was a stupid selfish act. A drug addict who got what he deserved. Fuck him.”

This is the public’s response to the Robin Williams suicide: “RIP, Robin. Lets remember him as the talented and wonderful man he was.”

Something is wrong with this picture hey? My simple point being is that people showed more compassion to Robin’s suicide than Kurt’s. All Kurt got was a lot of hateful and negative responses while people mourned for Robin.

Isn’t this messed up or what??? Sometimes I don’t get people. Kurt Cobain sparked a lot of controversy with his suicide. Sparked a lot of anger and outrage. While people today felt sorry for Robin Williams. Back in the day when Kurt killed himself, you never saw people help bring awareness to suicide. You never saw people bring up suicide prevention hotlines back then while a lot of people are doing that right now with Robin.

There are some people saying hateful and disrespectful things about Robin’s suicide but not a lot of them. Kurt got it worse.

Why didn’t people show a lot of compassion for Kurt? Don’t bring up the drugs ’cause Robin Williams was a drug addict too at some point. Robin used to be a big time cokehead in the 80’s. I believe people treated Kurt like crap ’cause he was young and he was a rock star. People thought Nirvana was a horrible band so that made it easier to attack him. People didn’t bash Robin for his suicide ’cause he was more of a lovable guy and a talented actor/comedian.

Sorry y’all but all people who committed suicide deserves compassion. It doesn’t matter whether or not you like the person. It doesn’t matter how talented you think he/she is. They all deserve compassion and respect. Why? It’s because saying negative stuff like “suicide is a selfish act” and saying all kinds of hateful things about it is not gonna help put suicide to an end. Talking trash like that is just going to keep making suicide a lot worse in America. You gotta show compassion for all suicide victims. If you have a loved one or a friend who is suffering depression and is suicidal, you can’t ignore it. You gotta give them psychiatric help. Yeah, a lot of psychiatrists are garbage and some don’t even help but makes things worse but you can help suicidal people yourself. You gotta put ‘em on suicide watch and things like that. Do your best to try and talk to them and stuff.

Maybe Robin’s suicide will get more people to feel compassion for Kurt now.

I just find it strange and hypocritical that when celebrities in the past commit suicide, they get treated negatively but when Robin killed himself, everybody showed compassion.

Just wait until the next celebrity kills him/herself. If a reality star or a rock musician commits suicide, nobody would care but if it’s a celebrity that everyone likes, they would be like, “Oh wow, RIP”.

See where I’m getting at?

Nirvana and Joan Jett perform “Teen Spirit” @ the Hall of Fame…

Here is Nirvana and Joan Jett performing together for the song “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Bootleg video but you can still hear it pretty good. I really liked their performance quite a lot. Joan’s voice has similarities to Kurt’s. Joan is still sexy as hell looking and I would totally date her, don’t care how old she is now. I’ve been a Joan Jett fan for years and glad she collaborated with Nirvana. I think Nirvana and Joan Jett should go on tour together or play a few shows to play a full concert performing Nirvana songs. That’ll be pretty sweet. I doubt more shows with Joan is planned but ya never know. Nirvana seems to be collaborating with other artists lately so you may never know what they’re planning.

It sucks that Kurt is not around. If Kurt was still alive, I’m sure he would have been on stage instead of Joan and Lorde.

Seattle Police facing lawsuit after Kurt Cobain death photos have been publicly released…

With today being the 20th Anniversary of the death of Kurt Cobain, The Seattle police are being sued by an investigative journalist named Richard Lee, who strongly believes that Kurt was murdered. He was unfairly labeled as a “conspiracy theorist”.

http://loudwire.com/seattle-police-lawsuit-kurt-cobain-photos/

My thoughts on this is that I think it is wrong and unfair for Richard Lee to get labeled as a “conspiracy theorist”. I also think it’s wrong for people to accuse him of trying to make money off of Kurt’s death which is total bullshit. He’s not the only one who think Kurt was murdered. Most Nirvana fans and most of Kurt’s supporters think he was murdered as well. When it was announced that the 4 rolls of film was found and the Seattle police was going to release them publicly, fans immediately responded thinking Kurt was murdered. Richard Lee is like the rest of us. He just wants answers out of Kurt’s “suicide”. This is just his way of fighting back and trying to get them to re-open the case.

It’s really the Seattle police trying to make money off of Kurt’s death, not Richard Lee. That’s why they found the photos and released the photos hoping to make more money off of them. They also did it hoping to shut people up about their thoughts that he was “murdered”. Well, it’s not working. There are still a lot of people who believe Kurt was murdered so are you gonna call them “conspiracy theorists” too? They aren’t conspiracy theorists, that is what they believe in.

Whether you agree it was murder or not, Kurt’s death STILL should be investigated. It sounds pretty suspicious and fishy. Richard Lee was just trying to let the police know that Kurt shouldn’t be ignored. The Seattle Police deserved the lawsuit. They released the photos publicly and they claimed nothing came out of them? How come the police aren’t the bad guys in this?

Kurt Cobain the musical? That’s a horrible idea and Kurt himself wouldn’t want it…

I’m fine with Courtney’s idea of a Kurt movie biopic and documentary but I’m not okay with the musical idea. That’s not what Kurt himself would have wanted and he would be disgusted by the idea. Hopefully, Dave Grohl will speak up and stop the musical from happening. On top of that, I don’t think she owns the right to Nirvana’s song cataloug, correct me if I’m wrong? I think Dave Grohl and the surviving Nirvana members own all the rights to Nirvana’s music. Not quite sure, though, I’m looking into it. I do know that Courtney lost the rights to Kurt’s image in 2012 so she could get sued for this anyways and I hope she does.

Kurt Cobain death reopened? No… not at this time…

Local Seattle reports have reported that the investigation of the death of Kurt Cobain have been re-opened due to finding 4 film rolls. Even though this news was reported locally in the Seattle area, it was only a matter of time this news is going to become a trending topic nationally.

However, this article says that there were no new findings and the case isn’t really being re-opened:

http://blogs.seattletimes.com/today/2014/03/police-look-at-cobain-files-no-new-findings/

Like a lot of people, I believe that Courtney Love murdered Kurt Cobain. She murdered him, covered it all up and got away with it. Kurt wasn’t suicidal before his death, it even says that right there in the article, “Cobain told police he had locked himself in the room to stay away from Love, police said. He said he was not suicidal, and he didn’t want to hurt himself.” 

Kurt locked himself in the room to get away from that annoying bitch Courtney ’cause she was probably bothering the hell out of him and he just wanted to be alone. It’s either Courtney herself shot him or she hired someone to do it… a hitman.

I do think this case should be re-opened, though. Kurt’s death certainly deserves answers.

Even though the case isn’t really back open at this time, hopefully those four film rolls will help get it back open sometime in the future, though. The 4 film rolls still sounds a little suspicious.

Happy 47th birthday Kurt!!!

Today would have been Kurt’s 47th birthday. Yes, I’m loyal to Nirvana. Always have been since my high school years. During high school, I would go home turn on the TV and watch MTV hoping any Nirvana videos would come on. Then I bought the CD “Nevermind” and I remembered listening to it over and over. I loved that record “Nevermind” back then and still love it now. That’s an album I’ll never get tired of loving. “In Utero” was amazing as well. All of their records are great even, “MTV Unplugged in New York”.

Nirvana have gotten a lot of criticism over the years. People thought Kurt was a talent-less songwriter and they thought Nirvana was a crappy band but I disagree. The haters also think Nirvana destroyed rock music and I disagree with that too. Nirvana was a huge part of changing rock and punk music forever. I’ve also always believed that Kurt was murdered, he didn’t kill himself.

I don’t care what the haters and doubters think of Nirvana, they were an amazing band. I thought this band were amazing live performers too. They put on the best shows. Just three guys rockin’ on stage and being tight as hell! I thought “Live at Reading” was one of their best performances other than their MTV Unplugged show. Kurt was a talented man. Their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction is totally deserving. I wish Kurt was still alive so he can see himself get inducted into the Hall of Fame ’cause I’m positive he would be all for it.

Nirvana was the greatest. They were my heroes in my teenage years. I’ve always been obsessed with the band. Someday I’ll put together a Nirvana tribute video of me covering their songs. Maybe Kurt’s upcoming anniversary death???

Love Nirvana or hate ‘em, they were an important part of music history and they have a special legacy.

Check out this article where Kurt’s hometown of Aberdeen paid tribute to Kurt which is pretty cool!

It’s unfair that Nirvana gets so much negative criticism. No matter what anybody says, I’ll always stay loyal to Nirvana just like I do with Metallica. Kurt maybe gone but his legacy is never going away.
