Kurt Cobain Height

The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.

Kurt Cobain is remembered as one of the most iconic rock musicians in the history of alternative music, and for his angst-fueled songwriting and anti-establishment persona -- which led him to be referenced as the spokesman of Generation X. He was one of those people who change the game forever.

About Kurt Cobain's height

Kurt Cobain was of average height, but his bad posture at times made him look shorter than he really was.

A police report had him at 5 feet 10 inches when was arrested by the Aberdeen, Washington police in May 1986, for spray painting the phrase ain’t got no whatchamacallit on vehicles. Subsequent police reports (Seattle Dept. and missing person report) had him at 5'10" too.

His measurement was most likely in shoes, so it could be said that he was likely to be actually 5'9" barefoot. Which makes sense as he really seemed the 5'9" type -- at least from what little we have seen of him.

That's our guess for his height. We think Kurt Cobain was very similar in height to another 5'9" legend -- Michael Jackson.

The real height of Kurt Cobain was

5 ft 9 in (175 cm)

It's okay to eat fish because they don't have any feelings.

Being himself.

I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.

Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.

On his friends.

I'm so happy because today I found my friends - they're in my head.

On sincerity.

I like to have strong opinions with nothing to back them up with besides my primal sincerity. I like sincerity. I lack sincerity.

On reading.

I'm not well-read, but when I read, I read well.

On drugs.

Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with with your self-esteem. They're no good at all.

Making people feel superior.

I like to make people feel happy and superior in their reactions towards my appearance.

He was right about the rap music.

Rap music is the only vital form of music introduced since punk rock.

On having a boring life.

I really haven't had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I'd rather tell a story about somebody else.

Divorce's effects on children.

I had a really good childhood up until I was nine, then a classic case of divorce really affected me.

On having close male friends.

I've always wanted male friends that I could be real intimate with and talk about important things with and be as affectionate with that person as I would be with a girl.

On macho men.

I've always had a problem with the average macho man - they've always been a threat to me.

The fountain of creativity.

I've never been a very prolific person, so when creativity flows, it flows. I find myself scribbling on little notepads and pieces of loose paper, which results in a very small portion of my writings ever showing up in true form.

Eyes are the door to the soul.

If my eyes could show my soul, everyone would cry when they saw me smile.

Being closer to the feminine side.

I definitely feel closer to the feminine side of the human being than I do the male - or the American idea of what a male is supposed to be. Just watch a beer commercial and you'll see what I mean.

Every country is the same...

America may be the land of the free, but there are definitely more ignorant people there. Most of the population is semi-retarded.

They won't understand.

No matter what you do or say, there's nothing that you can do to make people understand you.

The validation of others.

You do learn things and one of them is that happiness has nothing to do with validation from other people, the important thing is being happy with yourself ... finding something that is important to you, and sticking with it no matter what anyone says. The truth is you've got to really be tough because there are all kinds of forces that are always trying to get you to do things their way ... trying to tell you that you are throwing your life away if you don't follow their advice.
