Kurt Cobain? Who The Hell was He?

Ah, pop culture. We’re talking in Exploring Music about various music forms from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Dan, the resident older person in the class (He’s 64), just admitted that he wouldn’t know who the hell Kurt Cobain was if he hadn’t committed suicide. So I guess Cobain shouldn’t…
