Cobain was the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for Nirvana, who went from being a grunge band with a cult following to mainstream success on the strength of their album Nevermind and the single "Smells Like Teen Spirit". This opened the door for alternative rock to become a dominant force in American music. Cobain was uncomfortable with the level of success and the media focus on him and his personal life. These factors no doubt played a huge part in his struggles with drug addiction.
On April 8, 1994, Cobain was found dead in his home in Seattle, after committing suicide by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head.
