      An awesome song that talks about Cobains days under a bridge.
    • 2. Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana
      Kurt was again showing that his life was very painful. great song
    • 1. All Apolgies by Nirvana
      This song is one of Nirvanas best and in my oppinion should be in the top 10 of the 90s.

    Kurt Cobain was the greatest musician of the 90s and if he was still around im sure he would still be....... Courtney Love murdered Cobain and framed him with suicide go to justiceforkurt.com or cobaincase.com for reasons
