Biography: Kurt Cobain

Premieres July 30, 2009 - 10:00 PM (ET)

Biography: Kurt Cobain. A staple of the early grunge music scene in Seattle, the band Nirvana quickly rose to national and then worldwide fame, rising, perhaps, too fast for the band's young lead singer, Kurt Cobain. His dreams of musical success did not include the rampant media coverage or inadvertently becoming the face of Generation X. As his band's success grew, so did his dependence on drugs. After near overdoses, one suicide attempt, an intervention and escape from rehab, Cobain was discovered dead of a gunshot wound on April 8th, 1994.
