The legacy continues.

In the 1990s, Kurt Cobain was heralded as the "spokesman of a generation" as the frontman of Nirvana - arguably the definitive grunge band of the decade.

And while his sudden death in 1994 aged just 27 cut short Nirvana's musical legacy, it simply fuelled peoples' intrigue into the life of a man who, off stage, was a fairly mysterious and illusive character.

Now that's all about to change as new documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck, looks set to lift the lid on Kurt's private life. 

Released in 2015, the film is the "first fully-authorized" documentary about the star and will feature new recordings and home movies of Kurt that have never been seen before, according to director Brett Morgen. 

"Once I stepped into Kurt's archive, I discovered over 200 hours of unreleased music and audio, a vast array of art projects (oil paintings, sculptures), countless hours of never-before-seen home movies, and over 4000 pages of writings that together help paint an intimate portrait of an artist who rarely revealed himself to the media."

Montage Of Heck also credits Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain as an executive producer.
