221 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1988, he started the grunge band Nirvana. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.

Sad he killed himself.

Kurt cobain is very underrated,just because he does not do 12 minutue guitar solos like ygniwe malesteen and that crap does not mean he's not good.

This man is a genius. He's great at the guitar and his music is great too. I mean, he's a legend. Too bad he's gone. He had so much talent. I wish he could come back.

He was a great singer/guitarist and so hot! It makes me sad that he died. This man was an angel. He will definitely be missed. He was very talented and died too early. May his soul be with us. R.I.P. benjamin Orr. You were amazing!

Only reason not #1 (or at least near the top of this list) is because most people have never heard him - hence, why he is truly underrated. Dinosaur Jr. is just too far out there for the mainstream, I think. Still, You're Living All Over Me is an absolute masterpiece - his guitar work is unbelievable on that album. There is no other comparison to the sounds that he is making on that album (and the other early DJ albums) than to say something like, "Easily the Hendrix of his generation." And dude is still getting after it.

236 Steve Von Till
237 Rocky Gray
238 Jim Martin
239 Syd Barrett Syd Barrett Roger Keith Barrett was an English musician, composer, singer, songwriter, and painter. Best known as a founder member of the band Pink Floyd, Barrett was the lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter in its early years and is credited with naming the band.
