Kurt Cobain is my hero. He had long hair, didn’t give a shit and sang the way I felt, when I was 14. And he shot himself, the dumb ass, cuz that’s what that is, suicide is almost always the wront thign to do. ( I say almost, because I don’t know everytyhing). But from everything I’ve known, its not the right choice ever. “One of Kurt Cobain’s final interviews before his tragic death, this WatchMojo Presents video From the MUCH Vaults is an incredible look into the man and artist that we present on the day that would have been his 50th birthday. This raw video from 1993 features 6 minutes of very rarely seen footage from the original interview that was not aired on television. Nirvana’s legacy still burns bright and their music continues to influence and inspire people to this day. We hope that you enjoy this thoughtful and engaged interview with a man who meant so much to so many people.”
