Frances Bean Cobain Launches Limited-Edition 'Kurt Was Here' Clothing Line

September 9, 2019

Nirvana left a lasting effect on rock music and pop culture at the peak of their fame in the early '90s before Kurt Cobain's death in 1994. Now his daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, has helmed the release of the limited-edition "Kurt Was Here" collection, which features t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, posters and books each donning artwork and hand-written notes from Cobain himself.

The "Kurt Was Here" collection is the brainchild between The End of Music, LLC (the business branch of Cobain's estate) and Live Nation Merchandise, and is available online at, as well as retailers like Barneys and the UK department store Selfridges.

According to Live Nation, the selected artworks come from Cobain's original collection and have not been altered in any way. Frances Bean, the sole manager of The End of Music, LLC, took the lead on the design for "Kurt Was Here" after her mother, Courtney Love, stepped down in 2010.

The collection also falls on the 25th anniversary since Cobain's death in April 1994, and a portion of the proceeds will go towards the Jed Foundation, a non-profit which is dedicated to suicide prevention in teens and young adults.
