Few musicians possess the talent and character to retain 'Rock God' status nearly 20 years after their demise, but since 1994, the memory of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain has not faded one bit. Countless tributes have been paid to Cobain since his suicide, with the latest being a strange and multidimensional stage show featuring Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore.
Despite being the child of one of rock's most famous frontmen, Frances Bean Cobain has managed to maintain a relatively low profile. However, the late Kurt Cobain's 20-year-old daughter seems to pop into headlines every once in a while for reasons of which she has no control.
The grunge scene of the early '90s has been credited for flipping the music world on its ear and effectively shoving the hair metal dominance of the late '80s to the side.

"It's better to burn out than to fade away" may be one of Neil Young's most quotable lyrics, but the singer says that he's still haunted by the fact that the 'Hey Hey, My My' quip resonated so much with Kurt Cobain that the late Nirvana singer quoted it in his suicide note.
As an automobile, this 1972 Dodge van has seen better days. But as a pop culture artifact, it’s worth over $20,000, thanks to some scribbling Kurt Cobain did on the side during his stint as a roadie for sludge metal pioneers the Melvins.
Among all the items of rock memorabilia that go up for auction on eBay, this one has to be one of the most unusual: A buyer recently paid $3,000 for a pair of used pajamas once worn on stage by Kurt Cobain.
In case you missed it, deceased rapper Tupac Shakur was resurrected to “perform” at this year’s Coachella Festival. Thanks to the work of Musion Technology Ltd., 2Pac was brought back to life in the form of a hologram for a performance with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog.
Footage of Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain singing with his wife Courtney Love has made its way on the Internet. Grunge’s first couple can be seen in a never-before-released duet called ‘Stinking of You’ which you can watch below.
