14. Kurt Cobain died in 1994, when he committed suicide with a shotgun. At least, thats the official story. Cobain was found dead with a shotgun pointed at his chin days after he died by an electrician who had been scheduled to install a security system. Even though there are people who believe that Kurt was murdered (some of them even claim his wife Courtney Love killed him), there are also many stories about the famous rockers failed attempts to commit suicide a few times before. Close friends claim to this day he was NEVER suicidal.
