Preserve the Memory of Kurt Cobain sign now

10 years ago, the world lost one of its greatest music revolutionaries. The massive loss of Kurt Cobain can still be felt today were stuck with a mainstream musical landscape filled with bland carbonated pop muzak and blatant Nirvana rip-offs. Members of a jaded generation are still left with the feeling that the possibility of change is a sadistic pipe-dream, and that price for believing in that dream is immense.

Because of who Kurt was and what he represented, many people hold him sacred. But for the same reasons many others realize how they can exploit him to make a quick buck. His deepest, innermost thoughts were laid bare a year and a half ago when his journals were published. We all knew that on the tenth anniversary of Kurts death wed be bombarded with his image on the covers of glossy magazines and in bubblegum entertainment and news show segments. But todays (April 16, 2004) headline on Billboard.com was just a little too much to stomach: Cobain Pic Strikes Chord at WB. According to the article, The WB Network is developing an original movie about the life of rock icon Kurt Cobain. The network has obtained the rights to Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain, the 2001 book by Charles Cross. Tonights episodes of Smallville and 7th Heaven wont be seen so we can present All Apologies: The Life and Death of Kurt Cobain and the Grunge Movement, Candy-Coloured and Re-Packaged for the Britney Generation. Starring Hillary Duff and that dreamy kid from The O.C. The clichйd phrase rolling in his grave comes to mind.

This film well, actually, we cant really call it a film this movie of the week will be written by Robert Munic. Nothing against Mr. Munic I cant say that Ive ever seen his work which includes a role in the 1996 film Bordello of Blood but its a little unnerving to know that Kurts life will be scripted by someone whos t.v. movies have been described as sanitized and in general this isnt a very good movie, [but] for what its supposed to be tho (sic), its decent.

The real travesty of the situation is that the man isnt here to defend himself and protect his image. Yes, Kurt wanted to be a rock star. Yes, he hated everything that went along with it. But Im sure he would not have wanted his memory to be turned into something so corporate, so commercial. To become a slickly-packaged joke, the Elvis of the 21st Century. Wasnt watching a group of old French men in Moulin Rouge singing the chorus of Smells Like Teen Spirit bad enough?

No film could do Kurt Cobains legacy justice especially not a sanitized MOW. The people who signed this petition believe this and hope put an end to this travesty before it happens. Let us keep our memories untainted. DO NOT let the WB Network or any other television network produce a bland biopic on the life of Kurt Cobain. Let the legacy of Nirvana and the man behind it live on through the fans and the music.

    This film is not what Kurt would have wanted. His wishes should be remembered as we all should no his intentions were against commercialism and publicity. Making this film goes against the values of Cobain and his values should be held true, especially wh

    I care more about Kurt and his legacy, then seeing a corporate/commersialized movie that, like most bigraphical movies, will be filled with errors, mis-conseptions, and sometimes even flat out lies...Let Kurt and Nirvana's music stand for itself. We will
