RIP Kurt Cobain who died 24 years ago today…

Like most, I’ve first heard about Nirvana through their hit song, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. I remember the video to that song was being played all over MTV back in the 90’s. Each time Nirvana videos came on MTV, I would crank up the volume and enjoy it. I was a teenager in high school during the 90’s grunge era. If you did too then your high school years were awesome. I bought the “Nevermind” album after they exploded all over MTV. When I was a kid, all I would ever listen to was the “Nevermind” album… those were the days when the Compact Disc was pretty new too. I love the “Nevermind” album and still do love that record. I love “Bleach” and “In Utero” too.

I don’t get all the hatred toward Nirvana and Kurt Cobain himself. This is a band that deserves more respect ’cause without Nirvana then the other grunge bands wouldn’t have happened. Yes, I’m talking about Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, etc. All those bands were important to me during my high school years ’cause I listened to all of them. Nirvana was my most favorite, though.

Nirvana proved that you don’t need to be technical to make great music. All you need to do is get a few guys together and just make some noise and that’s it. Yeah, Nirvana songs were very simplistic, but that’s what I loved about them. You can still make tight as hell songs even with just playing barre chords, power chords and basic open chords. Sure, that was all Kurt mostly played on guitar but it’s his style I’m most impressed about.

I’ve been loyal to Nirvana ever since they exploded in the 90’s. Still am a fan of them now. At some point I’d like to video tape myself covering their songs. I used to cover some of their stuff when I used to perform live gigs and open mics so I’ll have to relearn them. I remember playing songs like “In Bloom”, “Breed”,  “Polly” and “Come As You Are”.

Nirvana was a great band. It’s too bad that their career was cut short.

I don’t get all the hate for Nirvana and Kurt’s guitar playing… why?

Whenever Nirvana is mentioned anywhere on the internet, it doesn’t matter where, then chances are you’re going to see a mixed reaction. You’ll see all kinds of hate and love for the band. You’ll see a bunch of people criticizing the band quite a lot. Talking shit about Kurt’s singing and guitar playing.

I’ve been a loyal Nirvana fan for years and still am. My love for them hasn’t stopped. Sure Kurt’s guitar playing was kind of sloppy and mostly basic stuff but still, he was pretty amazing at what he did. He still wrote some pretty fucking tight songs. When you’re a musician, you don’t need to be a perfectionist to write killer rock songs.

In the video footage above which I’ve just seen for the first time, all that is proof that Kurt was very talented. You don’t need to be a technical guitar player to write killer rock songs. It’s about playing guitar with feeling and that’s what Kurt did.

Before Nirvana became famous, Nirvana were pretty much nothing when they first started out. They were just three young kids playing at Krist’s mothers house and as you can see in the videos above, their audience was just a couple of their drunk friends. This video footage proves that Nirvana came a long way. They went from playing in a small room in a house to playing huge arena shows.

It seems that Nirvana already had the songs “About a Girl” and “School” from the very beginning. Look at that video above. Even though they’re just playing in a small room at Krist’s Mom’s house, they still pretend they’re playing at Madison Square Garden or something. In that video you can tell they love doing it by the way they play. Playing with energy. That’s how a rock band should play.

I freakin’ love Nirvana and if I ever form a rock band of my own, we’re definitely gonna be covering some Nirvana songs just for fun.

My 5 favorite Nirvana songs in honor of Kurt’s birthday today…

I don’t know why Nirvana continues to get so much hatred. I fucking love Nirvana. I’ve been a loyal fan ever since I was a teenager. I remember buying “Nevermind” album when it first came out and I was in high school then. Still have that CD in my collection too. I will never get tired of listening to Nirvana ever.

Even though their career was short-lived, they still wrote a bunch of incredible and amazing songs. Kurt was a big inspiration for my music and it was him that inspired me to write my own music whether I sang good or played the guitar good or not. I just wanted to write songs of my own. Kurt was a great songwriter. I still respect him now.

The audio tracks above are some of my favorite Nirvana songs. Nirvana is a type of band that makes you want to form a band yourself and I would like to get a band of my own going. Play heavy rock music.

Nirvana will always be awesome.

Happy birthday Kurt Cobain who would have been 49 today…

I love Nirvana. Always did ever since I was a kid in high school. I’m glad I was around back when the grunge era started. Back in those days there was no such thing as youtube so in order for us to watch our favorite music videos we would have to wait for them to come on MTV. When I was a kid, each time a Nirvana video came on MTV, I would crank up the volume on the TV and play air guitar during it. Then I bought the “Nevermind” album on CD and I could never stop listening to it. I still love that album to death now. To me, listening to Nirvana will never get old.

If Kurt was still alive today would he still be with Nirvana? No… I don’t believe Nirvana would still be together today if Kurt was still alive. Before Kurt’s passing, he was on the verge of breaking up Nirvana. They were gonna do one last studio album and that was it, I think. If Kurt was still alive, I’m sure he would still be playing music. I would think he would have started a solo career and do side projects with other bands. I can still see him being involved in music though. I won’t believe that fake suicide note where he said he was gonna give up the industry ’cause it’s a load of bull.

Hopefully soon his death will be re-investigated ’cause we deserve answers for sure and we deserve to know the real truth of what really happened to Kurt. Courtney can’t cover her tracks forever… the truth will always come out. I predict that Kurt’s murder will no longer be conspiracy theory and will turn out to be real after all. Give it time. Courtney’s on her way to prison soon.

Nirvana fans shamefully trash Justin Bieber for wearing Nirvana shirt at AMA Awards…

I’m a huge Nirvana fan myself. I’m pretty much a huge Nirvana fanatic. I fuckin’ love Nirvana but I’m not gonna trash Justin Bieber for wearing a Nirvana shirt at the AMA’s. Just like the rest of us, Justin seems to be a Nirvana fanatic himself so he wanted to pay his respects to that band and honor them in a cool kind of way so Nirvana fans bash Justin. Nirvana fans think Kurt Cobain would be rolling in his grave.

Ummmmmmm… no, if Kurt was still alive and he saw that today, I’m pretty positive Kurt would have been extremely flattered. Kurt would have been happy to see that. I’m pretty sure Dave and Krist thought it was pretty cool.

Justin is a music fan like the rest of us. He probably likes rock music like the rest of us too. That’s the sad part… people would bash Justin on everything. Hey, I wasn’t the biggest Justin Bieber fan but the kid gained my respect after that Comedy Central Roast thing he did earlier this year. I find nothing wrong with Bieber now. He’s okay, in my book.

Courtney continues to exploit Kurt Cobain for money, that’s why she had him murdered, folks…

It’s pretty clear the reason why Courtney Love had Kurt Cobain murdered. It’s so she can continue to exploit him for money. Get rich off of him. That’s why she owns the rights to Nirvana’s catalog and she can do what she wants with Nirvana songs. I can remember the time when Courtney tried to stop Dave and Krist from releasing the “With the Lights Out” box set that they released in the past.

Honestly, I don’t really like Courtney being in control of Nirvana’s catalog and Kurt Cobain’s image. She’s such an egotistical bitch and always has been. Does she deserve to have total control over Kurt’s image and music? No, absolutely not! In my opinion, Dave and Krist should have full ownership over Nirvana’s music. Courtney didn’t write the Nirvana songs, Dave and Krist helped write the songs with Kurt. The reality is, no matter who currently owns the copyright of a band’s catalog, the original artists themselves will always own the songs technically. I can’t stand Courtney. She didn’t write the Nirvana songs and she’s going around acting like she did.

First Courtney worked with HBO to get the “Montage of Heck” movie off the grounds which is a big money making opportunity for her and now she has another money making opportunity for her. She’s releasing “Kurt Cobain: The Montage of Heck – Home Recordings” this Friday which I’m sure she also has full ownership of copyright.

See here for the albums track listing:

http://www.amazon.com/Montage-Of-Heck-Home-Recordings/dp/B015WJEL3K

To be honest, I don’t agree with these home recordings of Kurt to be released to the public. I believe they were meant to be part of Kurt’s private music collection of songs that he recorded himself. Just him and his acoustic guitar. This “Home Recordings” release is all exploitation of Kurt, absolutely.

Next, Courtney will be planning a Kurt Cobain biopic film for Hollywood which is an even more money making opportunity for her.

See why she had him killed now? She did it so she can boost her own career and get more fame off of him. Ya know, leech off his fame is what she’s doing and she’s doing a great job of it.

Courtney is a piece of shit. I hope the Seattle PD does the smart thing and reopen the Kurt Cobain case so they can throw her in prison. Once she’s in prison, Dave and Krist can get the rights to Nirvana’s music back.

Ever since the release of that film, “Soaked in Bleach”, the murder of Kurt Cobain got wider attention…

I always figured that Kurt Cobain was murdered even before those two documentaries: “Kurt & Courtney” and “Soaked In Bleach” came out. Before those two films came out, very few people called Kurt’s death “murder”. Each time someone called it “murder”, it gets immediately judged as “Conspiracy Theory”. Now that “Soaked In Bleach” is now available for rent/buy, Kurt’s murder has got wider attention than ever before. The film “Soaked In Bleach” helped wake more people up which is good.

For a little more information about the film, read these two articles:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3271385/VIDEO-EXCLUSIVE-Experts-examining-Kurt-Cobain-s-suicide-note-suggest-murdered-dramatic-teaser-new-documentary-Soaked-Bleach.html

http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/kurt-cobain-the-legendary-nirvana-frontman-could-have-been-murdered/1/500520.html

If you want to watch the movie yourself you can either rent/buy it through the Itunes store and if you don’t want it digitally, you can buy the physical copy of the DVD through Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Soaked-In-Bleach-Daniel-Roebuck/dp/B00YAZNBTI

I think I’m gonna get my own copy of the movie on DVD soon ’cause it’s a well made documentary.

Blood is on Courtney’s hands now. She should give herself up and come clean about Kurt’s death. If she’s not talking and not cooperating, it’s pretty obvious she has something to hide. She’s asking for a life prison sentence and possible execution if she did have Kurt murdered.

More and more Nirvana fans wants answers now which is good. You should watch the film yourself, “Soaked In Bleach’ and you would see that Courtney may have had something to do with Kurt’s death. It’s amazing to me that Courtney has never been held accountable for anything and she’s still standing.

The Kurt Cobain death totally reminds me of Benghazi for sure. Both the Cobain death and Benghazi have a few things in common like “murder” and “cover up”. Pretty sad if you ask me.

I think America deserves to know the real truth of Kurt’s death especially the surviving members of Nirvana, they should know too.
