We won't lie: since Kurt Cobain passed away in '94, there's definitely been a void in the music industry. And on what would have been his 47th birthday (hard to believe, we know), it's hard not to look back on his insanely short yet influential career.
Here's why we want to grab a beat up flannel, hop on a tour bus time machine and revisit the glory days of grunge with Kurt…
1. Most MTV Unplugged sessions took hours and were heavily edited. Nirvana's iconic concert (see below) was filmed in one take. Yeah, they were that good.
2. These days, you know Smells Like Teen Spirit as one of the most popular songs ever—but it was actually a women's deodorant brand, which was worn by Cobain’s then girlfriend.
3. He loved Weird Al Yankovic. How awesome is that? He supposedly referred to him as a 'musical genius.' We bet he felt the same, Kurt.
