Genre-defining, cultural icon and musical revolutionary are all terms that have been used to describe Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Appearing on the scene in 1989, at the tail end of the hardcore punk and metal eras and clear influence from these genres, Nirvana released debut album ‘Bleach’ to critical acclaim but very little commercial success. Almost overnight, more accurately over a months’ time, Kurt and Nirvana became international superstars with their release of sophomore album ‘Nevermind’ in September 1991. Only originally expected to achieve a sales number of 250,000 records it was soon clear that this was a huge miscalculation, with the album being certified platinum in November of the same year.
Kurt captivated a generation with his dissonant and disorganised guitar playing, thrashing power chords throughout songs, and performing soaring but clumsy guitar solos. Butch Vig producer of Nevermind is quoted of saying “He had a kind of primal instinct for playing the guitar”. Even though Kurt wasn’t the most virtuosic, his natural ability and song writing gave him the prestige in alternative rock to become a modern guitar idol.
