Kurt Cobain Net Worth: Kurt Cobain was an American musician and artist who had a net worth of $100 million dollars. Kurt Cobain was the co-founder, lead singer, and songwriter for the very successful and influential rock band, Nirvana, which sold 25 million albums in the US and 50 million internationally. He passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1994.

Born Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994) in Aberdeen, Washington. Cobain teamed up with bassist Krist Novoselic to form Nirvana in 1985. Establishing the combo as part of the Seattle music scene, they released their debut album Bleach in 1989. Nirvana, which has gradually developed a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between quiet verses and loud, heavy choruses, made their breakthrough with the single Smells Like Teen Spirit. It was the first single from their sophomore album Nevermind (1991). Not only Nirvana's immediate success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole, but Cobain also found himself referred to in the media as of the generation X, i.e., the one born after the Western Post–World War II baby boom. Their third and last album In Utero (1993), cemented further Nirvana's status on the music scene worldwide. But for Cobain, along with the fame came wealth and fatal drug addiction. He also found it difficult to cope with stardom and media attention, as well as the professional and lifelong personal pressures surrounding himself and his wife, musician Courtney Love. All of the above eventually resulted in Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994. He left behind his wife Courtney and newly-born daughter Frances Bean Cobain.
