Cobain: Montage Of Heck: The Stereogum Review

Cobain: Montage Of Heck is a movie about the frontman of Nirvana, but it isn't about Nirvana. The word Bleach is never uttered.

Kurt Cobain’s Childhood Home For Sale Again, Now $100k Cheaper

Nobody wants to buy Kurt Cobain's childhood home! Or, more likely, realtors vastly overestimated the appeal (and extra money) that his one-time living space would bring in. The house first went on the market back in September 2013 for $500,000 but, as The Puget Sound Business Journal points out, a new listing show… More »

Billy Corgan On Kurt Cobain: “He And I Were The Top Two Scribes, And Everybody Else Was A Distant Third”

We've gone way too long without a juicy, self-admiring Billy Corgan quote, but The Independent's new interview with Corgan is full of them. Although it's occasioned by the Smashing Pumpkins' new Monuments To An Elegy, the interview largely focuses on events from 20 years ago. For instance, when reporter Nick Hasted mentions that Eddie… More »

MTV Unplugged In New York Turns 20

Funny thing about suicide: It's not a mystery to be solved. When someone you know, or someone you admire, takes her own life, there's always a temptation to rifle through your memories of that person, looking for some clue of what might happen. It's not there -- or, if it is, there's usually no reaso… More »

Kurt Cobain’s People Should’ve Been More Permissive Of His Heroin Addiction, Says Coolio

Coolio's "Fantastic Voyage" came out in 1994, so Spin decided to include the 51-year-old rapper in their ongoing '94 celebration. Specifically, they played him a series of hits from that year and asked him for commentary.
