This month marks the 19th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's passing and the gaping hole he left behind in the music world with his songs and words. In 2002 a collection of Cobain's journals were published that dated between 1988 and 1993, each journal entry is a closer look into the mind of Cobain from starting Nirvana to ultimately ending it. Journals contains letters, drawings, lists, and Nirvana-related drafts, poems and the thought process of Cobain at work. It was a unique perspective for fans to pick apart the brain of the man they considered a hero, icon, and musical savior, however, Journals proves that Cobain could hardly save himself in the end.
On it's release, Journals became a Best Seller and topped the New York Times Best Seller list and had everyone buzzing. While Cobain did not live long enough to see himself become a best selling author, he did leave behind a paper trail that cited why he will live on in infamy.
