Kurt Cobain, who was the poster boy for the rise of grunge music while inspiring a generation of plaid shirts and unwashed hair, would have celebrated his 50th birthday on Monday.
Cobain, who died at the age of 27 from a self-inflicted shotgun wound, remains an icon for a huge generation of dedicated 50-something rock music lovers. Cobain personified the rock star lifestyle of sex, drugs and rock and roll while maintaining an anti-celebrity persona.

Too Skinny Courtney
These pictures show a severely skinny Courtney Love.
Love says she’s been stressed over money missing from her late husband’s estate. Speculation from the peanut gallery whispers that the lack of girth is attributed to Love’s heavy drug use.
