Kurt Cobain Net Worth: Kurt Cobain was an American musician and artist who had a net worth of $50 million at the time of his death. Kurt Cobain was the co-founder, lead singer, and songwriter for the very successful and influential rock band, Nirvana. Nirvana sold 25 million albums in the US and 50 million internationally. Kurt passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on April 5, 1994. He was born Kurt Donald Cobain on February 20, 1967 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 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). Nirvana's success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole and Cobain found himself referred to in the media as of the icon of generation X. Nirvana's third album In Utero (1993), further cemented their status on the music scene worldwide. Unfortunately, Cobain had developed a terrible drug addiction. He 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. Today Frances Bean is the primary beneficiary of Kurt's estate. She is expected to the full estate, worth $200 million, on her 30th birthday. Today she earns over $100,000 per month in royalties, publishing rights and investment dividends.
