Through his angst-fueled songwriting and anti-establishment persona, Cobain's compositions widened the thematic conventions of mainstream rock music. He was often heralded as a spokesman of Generation X and is considered to be one of the most influential musicians in the history of alternative rock. Born in Aberdeen, Washington , Cobain formed the band Nirvana with Krist Novoselic and Aaron Burckhard in and established it as part of the Seattle music scene which later became known as grunge. Although Cobain was hailed as the voice of his generation following Nirvana's sudden success, he resented this, believing his message and artistic vision had been misinterpreted by the public.

Nirvana was, without a doubt, one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time. Although nowadays there are teenagers who wear Nirvana t-shirts without knowing the band at all , they were responsible for bringing rock back to the top of mainstream media at a time when rock music was considered to be over. But there are still a lot of unknown facts about Nirvana, a band that in less than four years, changed music forever. When he was a kid, his parents divorced and both found new partners. They would play punk rock and did not see a lot of success. Once Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic started playing together, the foundation of Nirvana was set.
