Happy Birthday, Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain would have been 50 today.  His daughter posted this note to him on Instagram:  http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/624/cpsprodpb/9FBD/production/_94739804_francesbeaninsta.jpg

To celebrate, I made a playlist of my 50 favorite songs Kurt was involved with, from his first experiments with music through the final known recordings.  Here’s a highlight from each era.

Happy birthday, Kurt.  In 23 years, there’s not been another quite like you.
