It's hard to figure out which is more difficult to believe: That Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain would have turned 46 years old today or that he has been dead for almost 20 years.

In honor of the former fact, which obviously merits more celebration than the latter one, we decided to get you linked up with some of our favorite pieces we've done on Kurt over the years.

Oh, and for perspective, peep this photo from the folks at Phojoe.com, put together three years ago, to mark what would have been Cobain's 43rd birthday. Maybe of all the difficult-to-believe things, this photo is the hardest. When an icon dies young and leaves a good-looking corpse, it's hard to imagine him or her going through a phase that bears any resemblance to Elvis' later years.
