Sometime in the fall of 1991, I heard Nirvana’s  Smells Like Teen Spirit.  The music hit me in the face like a brick. After one listen I was hooked.  I bought the CD almost immediately.  Nearly 20 years later the song still reminds me of some great days in college.

Today’s thought is about how 17 years ago today, Nirvana ended sadly with the suicide of the founder and lead singer Kurt Cobain.

“I haven’t felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing . . . for too many years now”. Kurt’s suicide note.

I disagree with Kurt’s decision of ending it all.

In Memory of Kurt Cobain, here are some of my favorites.
