Nirvana is one of the most iconic bands in history, and they are known for their big hits like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “In Bloom.” But why did Nirvana break up? There has been a lot of speculation over the years as to what really happened, but now there is finally an answer. It turns out that Kurt Cobain’s own handwriting may have revealed his reasons for disbanding Nirvana.
After Kurt Cobain’s suicide in April 1994, Nirvana broke up. But why did that happen?
Nirvana was a band that left an indelible mark on popular culture with their album “Nevermind” which turned rock music into mainstream business. It turns out this never would have happened if not for Kurt Cobain’s angst ridden rants found in his personal journal, but it was also because of his character that the band eventually ended.
Kurt Cobain’s notebook reveals some of the reasons about why he took his own life, which was why Nirvana broke up. In the final days of his life, Kurt Cobain started writing down thoughts and ideas for songs that he wanted to complete after his death. In a spiral-bound notebook, which is now on display at Seattle’s EMP Museum, he wrote “I am so bored with myself…Everything I’m doing just feels like a repetition.” He also talks about taking responsibility for success and saying goodbye to people before you die.
