5 Ways Kurt Cobain Changed the Face of Music

FUSE TV - 5 Ways Kurt Cobain Changed the Face of Music

Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's suicide. The Nirvana frontman took his life on April 5, 1994, although his body wasn't discovered until three days later. In his 2014 book Here We Are Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain, author Charles R. Cross—one of the first people to learn of Cobain's death 20 years ago—explores how the iconic rock musician's legacy has stood the test of time and redefined rock music. 

For what would have been his 48th birthday, honor his legacy with and check out the five ways Cobain changed the game. 

1) He Spoke To Us & About Us

"Music stands above everything else," Cross says. "That is 90% of his legacy. He had the capacity to write a song that he felt like he was speaking to you, or, he was speaking about you. You felt both at the same time. There was a unique connection he had with listeners. It was both his greatest strength and part of the reason [for] his struggles."
