A Look Back at Kurt Cobain, 25 Years After His Death


It's hard to believe, but it's been 25 years since Kurt Cobain passed away at the age of 27 in Seattle. In the short time he was alive, the Nirvana frontman from the small working class town of Aberdeen, WA made an indelible mark on music and '90s counterculture.

As we reflect back on his life and tragic death, we will also explore some of places where fans can pay their respects.

Kurt Cobain doesn't have a gravesite, but there are several memorials. 

The "Heart-Shaped Box" singer's remains were cremated and scattered in a private memorial ceremony arranged by his mother and attended by close family, widow Courtney Love, daughter Frances Bean Cobain, and Cobain's ex-girlfriend, Tracy Marander.
