After the deaths of legends like Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin all at the age 27, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain added his own name to the list after committing suicide in 1994. And it was Cobain’s death that really brought the notion of a ‘27 Club’ to the public eye. 

Cobain had possessed a troubled mind for most of his life, which was accelerated by his heroin addiction and refusal to attend rehab. Cobain became the gravelly voice of the 1990s grunge movement the minute ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ hit the airwaves, with the Nirvana leader continuing to create brilliant rock milestones until the day he died.
