Cobain was already aware of Love through her role in the film Straight to Hell.
In late , the two were often together and bonded through drug use. Love wore a satin and lace dress once owned by Frances Farmer, and Cobain donned a Guatemalan purse and wore green pajamas, because he had been "too lazy to put on a tux. In an interview with The Guardian , Love revealed the opposition to their marriage from various people:.
Kim Gordon [of Sonic Youth] sits me down and says, "If you marry him your life is not going to happen, it will destroy your life. I love him, and I want to be with him! It wasn't his fault. He wasn't trying to do that. Love was already pregnant,  and the couple's daughter Frances Bean Cobain was born August 18, A sonogram of the couple's as-yet-unborn baby was included in the artwork for Nirvana's single, " Lithium ".
In a article in Vanity Fair , Love admitted to using heroin, not knowing that she was pregnant; however, Love claimed that Vanity Fair had misquoted her, : While Cobain and Love's romance had always been a media attraction, they found themselves hounded by tabloid reporters after the article was published, many wanting to know if Frances was addicted to drugs at birth. The Los Angeles County Department of Children's Services took the Cobains to court, stating that the couple's drug usage made them unfit parents.
Love later claimed to have ceased heroin use upon learning of her pregnancy. In February , he came out as bisexual in The Advocate , stating, "I'm definitely gay in spirit and I probably could be bisexual" and "if I wouldn't have found Courtney , I probably would have carried on with a bisexual life-style". He described himself as being "feminine" in childhood, and often wore dresses and other stereotypically feminine clothing. He reported having felt "different" from the age of seven, and was a frequent target of homophobic bullying in his school and hometown.
If any of you in any way hate homosexuals, people of different color, or women, please do this one favor for us—leave us the fuck alone!
Don't come to our shows and don't buy our records. Throughout most of his life, Cobain suffered from chronic bronchitis and intense physical pain due to an undiagnosed chronic stomach condition. He regularly used the drug during adulthood.
Cobain's first experience with heroin occurred sometime in , administered to him by a local drug dealer in Tacoma, Washington , who had previously supplied him with oxycodone and aspirin.
Cobain claimed that he was "determined to get a habit" as a way to self-medicate his stomach condition.
That was such a relief," he related. Of course he was vomiting — that's what people on heroin do, they vomit. It's called 'vomiting with a smile on your face. His heroin use began to affect the band's Nevermind supporting tour. One such example came the day of the band's performance on Saturday Night Live , where Nirvana had a photographic session with Michael Levine.
Having used heroin beforehand, Cobain fell asleep several times during the shoot. Cobain divulged to biographer Michael Azerrad , "I mean, what are they supposed to do? They're not going to be able to tell me to stop. So I really didn't care. Obviously to them it was like practicing witchcraft or something. They didn't know anything about it so they thought that any second, I was going to die".
Rather than calling for an ambulance, Love injected Cobain with naloxone to bring him out of his unconscious state.
Cobain proceeded to perform with Nirvana, giving the public every indication that everything was business as usual. Following a tour stop at Terminal Eins in Munich, Germany, on March 1, , Cobain was diagnosed with bronchitis and severe laryngitis. He flew to Rome the next day for medical treatment, and was joined there by his wife, Courtney Love , on March 3, The next morning, Love awoke to find that Cobain had overdosed on a combination of champagne and Rohypnol. Cobain was immediately rushed to the hospital and was unconscious for the rest of the day.
After five days in the hospital, Cobain was released and returned to Seattle.
On March 18, , Love phoned the Seattle police informing them that Cobain was suicidal and had locked himself in a room with a gun. Police arrived and confiscated several guns and a bottle of pills from Cobain, who insisted that he was not suicidal and had locked himself in the room to hide from Love.
Love arranged an intervention regarding Cobain's drug use on March 25, The ten people involved included musician friends, record company executives, and one of Cobain's closest friends, Dylan Carlson. The intervention was initially unsuccessful, with an angry Cobain insulting and heaping scorn on its participants and eventually locking himself in the upstairs bedroom. However, by the end of the day, Cobain had agreed to undergo a detox program.
The staff at the facility were unaware of Cobain's history of depression and prior attempts at suicide. When visited by friends, there was no indication to them that Cobain was in any negative or suicidal state of mind. He spent the day talking to counselors about his drug abuse and personal problems, happily playing with his daughter Frances.
These interactions were the last time Cobain saw his daughter.
The following night, Cobain walked outside to have a cigarette and climbed over a six-foot-high fence to leave the facility which he had joked earlier in the day would be a stupid feat to attempt. He took a taxi to Los Angeles Airport and flew back to Seattle. McKagan later stated he knew from "all of my instincts that something was wrong". On April 2 and 3, Cobain was spotted in numerous locations around Seattle.
Cobain was not seen the next day. On April 7, amid rumors of Nirvana breaking up, the band pulled out of the Lollapalooza Music Festival. On April 8,  Cobain's body was discovered at his Lake Washington Boulevard home by electrician Gary Smith,  who had arrived to install a security system. Apart from a minor amount of blood coming out of Cobain's ear, the electrician reported seeing no visible signs of trauma and initially believed that Cobain was asleep until he saw the shotgun pointing at his chin.
A note was found, addressed to Cobain's childhood imaginary friend Boddah, that stated that Cobain had not "felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing [ A high concentration of heroin and traces of diazepam were also found in his body.
Cobain's body had been lying there for days; the coroner's report estimated Cobain to have died on April 5, at the age of A public vigil was held for Cobain on April 10, , at a park at Seattle Center drawing approximately seven thousand mourners. Love read portions of the suicide note to the crowd, crying and chastising Cobain. Near the end of the vigil, Love distributed some of Cobain's clothing to those who still remained.
I remember the day after that I woke up and I was heartbroken that he was gone. I just felt like, "Okay, so I get to wake up today and have another day and he doesn't. Grohl believed that he knew Cobain would die at an early age, saying that "sometimes you just can't save someone from themselves", and "in some ways, you kind of prepare yourself emotionally for that to be a reality".
Once you do that, you can't go wrong, because you can't make any mistakes when people love you for being yourself. But for Kurt, it didn't matter that other people loved him; he simply didn't love himself enough". A final ceremony was arranged for Cobain, by his mother, on May 31, , and was attended by both Love and Tracy Marander. As a Buddhist monk chanted, daughter Frances Bean scattered Cobain's ashes into McLane Creek in Olympia, the city where he "had found his true artistic muse".
Cobain is a well-known member of the 27 Club. His death has since been a topic of public fascination and debate. According to a spokesperson for the Seattle Police Department, the department receives at least one weekly request, mostly through Twitter, to reopen the investigation, resulting in the maintenance of the basic incident report on file.
In March , the Seattle police developed four rolls of film that had been left in an evidence vault—a reason was not provided for why the rolls were not developed earlier.
According to the Seattle police, the 35mm film photographs show the scene of Cobain's dead body more clearly than previous Polaroid images taken by the police. Detective Mike Ciesynski, a cold case investigator, was instructed to look at the film because "it is 20 years later and it's a high media case". Ciesynski stated that Cobain's death remains a suicide and that the images would not have been released publicly.
One photo shows Cobain's arm, still wearing the hospital bracelet from the drug rehab facility he checked out of just a few days prior to returning to Seattle.
Another photo shows Cobain's foot resting next to a bag of shotgun shells , one of which was used in his death. Cobain has been remembered as one of the most iconic rock musicians in the history of alternative music. In the intervening decade, Cobain, a small, frail but handsome man in life, has become an abstract Generation X icon, viewed by many as the "last real rock star" [..
The sign was paid for and created by the Kurt Cobain Memorial Committee, a non-profit organization created in May to honor Cobain. On the anniversary of his death, fans gather in the park to celebrate his life and memory.
In , Cobain took the place of Elvis Presley as the top-earning deceased celebrity , after the sale of the Nirvana song catalogue. Presley reclaimed the spot the following year. Controversy erupted in July when a monument to Cobain in Aberdeen along the Wishkah River included the quote " Drugs are bad for you. They will fuck you up". The city ultimately decided to sandblast the monument to replace the expletive with "f",  but fans immediately drew the letters back in.
Lars Ulrich of Metallica reflected on Cobain's influence stating that "with Kurt Cobain you felt you were connecting to the real person, not to a perception of who he was — you were not connecting to an image or a manufactured cut-out. You felt that between you and him there was nothing — it was heart-to-heart.
There are very few people who have that ability". The Story of Nirvana , a book chronicling Nirvana's career from its beginning, as well as the personal histories of the band members.
The book explored Cobain's drug addiction, as well as the countless controversies surrounding the band. After Cobain's death, Azerrad republished the book to include a final chapter discussing the last year of Cobain's life. The book is notable, as it involved the band members themselves, who provided interviews and personal information to Azerrad specifically for the book.
In , Azerrad's taped conversations with Cobain were transformed into a documentary about Cobain, titled Kurt Cobain: About a Son. Though this film does not feature any music by Nirvana, it has songs by the artists that inspired Cobain.
He took a film crew to visit a number of people associated with Cobain and Love; Love's father, Cobain's aunt, and one of the couple's former nannies. Although Hoke claimed he knew who killed Cobain, he failed to mention a name, and offered no evidence to support his assertion. Broomfield inadvertently captured Hoke's last interview, as he died days later, reportedly hit by a train. However, Broomfield felt he had not uncovered enough evidence to conclude the existence of a conspiracy.
In a interview, Broomfield summed it up by saying:. I think that he committed suicide. I don't think there's a smoking gun. And I think there's only one way you can explain a lot of things around his death. Not that he was murdered, but that there was just a lack of caring for him. I just think that Courtney had moved on, and he was expendable.
Journalists Ian Halperin and Max Wallace took a similar path and attempted to investigate any possible conspiracy for themselves. Their initial work, the book, Who Killed Kurt Cobain? Over the next several years, Halperin and Wallace collaborated with Grant to write a second book, 's Love and Death: The Murder of Kurt Cobain.
In , writer Charles R. Cross published a biography of Cobain, titled Heavier Than Heaven. For the book, Cross conducted over interviews, and was given access by Courtney Love to Cobain's journals, lyrics, and diaries.
In , Cross published Cobain Unseen: Mosaic of an Artist , a compilation of annotated photographs and creations and writings by Cobain throughout his life and career. In , a sampling of Cobain's writings was published as Journals.
The book fills pages with a simple black cover; the pages are arranged somewhat chronologically although Cobain generally did not date them. The journal pages are reproduced in color, and there is a section added at the back with explanations and transcripts of some of the less legible pages.
The writings begin in the late s and were continued until his death. A paperback version of the book, released in , included a handful of writings that were not offered in the initial release. In the journals, Cobain talked about the ups and downs of life on the road, made lists of what music he was enjoying, and often scribbled down lyric ideas for future reference.
Upon its release, reviewers and fans were conflicted about the collection. Many were elated to be able to learn more about Cobain and read his inner thoughts in his own words, but were disturbed by what was viewed as an invasion of his privacy.
In January , Love began to shop the biography Heavier Than Heaven to various movie studios in Hollywood to turn the book into an A-list feature film about Cobain and Nirvana. The inclusion of Cobain as a playable character in the video game, Guitar Hero 5 ,  upset Novoselic and Grohl, who expressed their dismay at the ability of players to use Cobain with any song, including those sung by female vocalists.
Written by Greg Prato, the book explored the history of grunge in detail, touching upon Nirvana and Cobain's life and death via interviews with former bandmates, friends, and various grunge-era contemporaries.
A picture of Cobain from the Bleach era is used for the book's front cover, and its title comes from a shirt that Cobain was once photographed wearing. Grohl and Love accepted the accolade at the ceremony. A Brett Morgen film, entitled Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck , premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January , followed by small-screen and cinema releases.
Soaked in Bleach is a American docudrama directed by Benjamin Statler. The film details the events leading up to the death of Kurt Cobain, as seen through the perspective of Tom Grant, the private detective who was hired by Courtney Love to find Cobain, her husband, shortly before his death in It also explores the premise that Cobain's death was not a suicide.
Regarding the depiction of Nirvana, and in particular Kurt Cobain, the indie rock author Andrew Earles wrote:. Never has a rock band's past been so retroactively distorted into an irreversible fiction by incessant mythologizing, conjecture, wild speculation, and romanticizing rhetoric.
The Cobain biographical narrative - specifically in regard to the culturally irresponsible mishandling of subjects such as drug abuse, depression, and suicide - is now impenetrable with inaccurate and overcooked connectivity between that which is completely unrelated, too chronologically disparate, or just plain untrue.
