Kurt Cobain Documentary Trailer

The late and legendary rocker from Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, has long been one of music’s most fascinating figures since the early 90s. I enjoyed Nirvana’s music as I grew older and his suicide remains a sad day from his many loyal fans.

Now, coming in May, HBO is set to premiere the definitive Cobain documentary ‘Montage of Heck’ and the first trailer is below. It’s, as you’d imagine, a fascinating and dramatic look behind the scenes and into the mind of Kurt Cobain, especially as he grew as a rebellious adolescent. He represents how it feels to be alone, which as it’s illustrated in the trailer, was his greatest fear. He loved his family, child, and kittens in the previously unseen home video. I’m hooked from the well-produced trailer and now can’t wait to see the film.


Kurt Cobain ‘Montage of Heck’

Too cool not to post as some early Kurt Cobain creation has hit the web today — Montage of Heck. It’s a 36 minute long song that puts together physical copies of samples that Cobain must have collected and chopped up in the order below. This was apparently made in 1988, before any of the fame, when Cobain was 21 years old. Without further ado, give this a listen below.
