Kurt Cobain, author, singer and leader of the grunge band Nirvana that was multi-platinum, was born in Hoquaim, Seattle on February 20th of 1967. Before Nirvana was formed in 1986, many of his bands had been formed and reformed. By 1988 there were demo tapes being made and shows being performed by Nirvana and in 1989 their first album was recorded under Sub-Pop, a local independent label in Seattle. Proving to be well-received in Britain, they were signed to a mega-label, which was the first for a non-mainstream band. He was the head of a group that became an overnight success and went on to record many other albums and even filmed a performance for MTV.
