Video of the Day: Happy 45th Birthday, Kurt

Share this post

On February 20, 1967, Kurt Donald Cobain shuffled into this mortal coil and stuck around just long enough to inexorably alter the musical landscape during his twenty-seven years and change.  In particular, this video contrasts the idiosyncracy of his music with the bizarreness of Nirvana‘s Teen-Pop-Idol-ness.   Today, as America celebrates Dead Presidents’ Day, he would have been forty-five.  He’s Kurt Cobain, after all, so there’s no reason to expound ad nauseum.  R.I.P., Kurt.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
