Kurt Cobain is a rock legend who pioneered the grunge/pop movement during the early 90’s, most notably in the Seattle area. The lead singer of Nirvana grew up never quite fitting in despite his extremely artistic talents. Kurt never aspired to be popular however, which is why he didn’t react well to fame. He never quite understood why people all of a sudden loved him, especially since he was always an underdog who took great pride in singing for his cult like misfit fans.

He will always be remembered as a true revolutionary who pushed the envelope with his musical masterpieces. Although he took his life so soon, his music is timeless, his creative ideas and deep insights will remain forever as a legacy. Kurt Cobain, like many geniuses before him, expressed his radical philosophies, yet never truly understood his own blinding potential and gift to the world.

Here are the 10 best Kurt Cobain quotes that will push you to seek freedom in your life and your mind while reminding you to never sell yourself short.
