Celebrating Kurt Cobain's 42nd Birthday
February 20, 2009
On Friday, February 20th, former Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain would have turned 42. The iconic alternative-rock legend, who died tragically in 1994, was an innovator and trendsetter, not just musically but stylistically as well, wearing a succession of thrift-store, punk-rock or homemade T-shirts. This year you can remember Cobain wearing one of the singular, striking shirts he incorporated into his own unique sense of fashion. Choose between Kurt's ironic "Grunge is Dead" shirt; his "Hi, How Are You," shirt sporting a design from outside musician Daniel Johnston; his vintage "Motorbike" shirt, sporting the slogan "Live to Ride, Ride to Live"; his "Sounds" shirt, featuring the logo from the magazine of the same name; and his "Olympia Beer" shirt, a nod to one of the music scenes that ultimately fostered Nirvana.

Check out classic photos of Kurt rocking the above mentioned shirts at this location.

Worn Free combines art, rock and roll and chic fashion into lines of hip T-shirts that make pop culture's history come alive, worn by celebrities, musicians and notable figures all over the world, including Robert Downey Jr., Jennifer Aniston, Eddie Vedder, Robert Plant and many more.
