What did ya'll think? I was a big Nirvana fan in the 90's. I was devastated when Kurt died. The documentary was ok but didn't answer any of the questions I had with his suicide. Everything on the documentary I already knew. Anyone else see it. What did you think?

I never cared for Nirvana, or the one trick pony that was the drug addict Kurt Cobain. I'm sorry that his suicide hurt so many, but I just don't have any sympathy for someone that chose to leave their children. Plus he wasn't God's gift to music like he was made out to be.

What generation of music was influential to you? For me it was the the 90's grunge & also rap from the 90's. I was just as devastated when Biggie died. I'm also 36 so that might make a difference.

His music was also very different than the music already popular. It was that Seatle punk rock that was so good in the 90's.

Mostly the 80's& early 90's....I was just never into the grunge movement. In those days I always preferred rock/metal.

I get that,I do. I just have always thought that he was made out to be way bigger & better than he actually was. I understand his suicide was a drug fueled one, but what reasons have been given as to why?

He couldn't deal with the fame & had a lot of inner, emotional issues about being good enough since his family pushed him away. His music was good & was worth the credit he recieved at the time. Maybe YOU just didn't get it.
