Kurt Cobain was born on this day – February 20 – in 1967. He died in April 1994, joining the 27 Club, which included Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin.

Nirvana’s 1991 Smells Like Teen Spirit marked the beginning of a shift in popular rock music – away from metal and hard rock, and dance – toward grunge and alternative rock. That song was the anthem of Generation X, for which Cobain became a reluctant spokesperson and role model.

Even though Nirvana was around for only a handful of years, its music defined a generation and is still relevant 14 years after Cobain’s passing. His legendary status lives on.
