Kurt Cobain is best known as the lead singer of the grunge band Nirvana which he formed in 1988. He became a rock legend quickly and remains one of the most popular artists of our time.

After releasing the majorly successful album “Nevermind,” Nirvana’s highly acclaimed album “In Utero” was released in 1993 and skyrocketed to the top of the charts.
