One of the most tragic death of a rock music icon is perhaps claimed by Kurt Cobain. Cobain was found died in his house 17 years ago April 8th but police had estimated his death around April 5 about 3 days earlier, which makes Tuesday the 17th anniversary of his death.

Kurt Cobain was the frontman of seminal Grunge band Nirvana. Cobain achieved success as he sunk further and further into depression and drug use. Nirvana's biggest hit came with the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit," off the legendary album "Nevermind." Cobain became uncomfortable with fame despite his growing profile on MTV and in raucous live shows, with lyrics reflecting his pain at a broken childhood and distrust of the world.
