Kurt and his girlfriend, Tracy The first band Kurt and his friend, Krist Novoselic, decided to form a band to help their financial situation. The band was initially a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band called "The Sellouts". Krist Novoselic Seriously, though, They were picky when it came to drummers Kurt and Krist started writing their own songs and formed their own nameless band. The only problem was that they didn't have a drummer. The band had many temporary drummers until they settled on Chad Channing to be their drummer. They had also settled on a name: Nirvana. Kurt, Krist and their drummer at the time, Dave foster Chad Channing Woah, an album Nirvana signed with Sub Pop records to release an album. The album was titled "Bleach".

They dated for a while and within a few months, Courtney became pregnant. They married in February 1992. Kurt's baby Vanity Fair wrote an article regarding Kurt and Courtney's baby. They accused Courtney of using heroin throughout her pregnancy. This was not true and angered Kurt. When their daughter Frances was born, many news outlets said the baby was deformed due to drug use. This was not true either. Frances was perfectly healthy. Kurt and Frances Frances Now Now back to the music Nirvana released their 3rd album in 1993. There were many rumors that the album was too rough and would never be released, but these rumors were untrue. In Utero, Nirvana's third and final album (while Kurt was alive) I'm going to hell for this Awww, now the depressing part In April of 1994, Kurt injected himself with ungodly amounts of heroin and shot himself. Themes? Success isn't everything
Drugs are bad, mmmkay
Why write a book about him? He made some good music and influenced a lot of people
His life was pretty interesting and a tragedy of sorts (He also had cool hair) Favorite parts- When he got into an argument with Axl Rose at the VMAs
Least favorite part- The end:'(
Important part- His imaginary friend Boddah Say, what's that little speck there?
