Meanwhile, Frances Bean Cobain, who served as executive producer on the film, recently commented on the legacy of her father ahead of its release.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, the 22-year-old visual artist described her father’s influence and status in popular culture as being “inescapable” and said that he’s been placed “on a pedestal”.
“I was around 15 when I realised he was inescapable,” Cobain said. “Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there’s my dad.”
She continued: “He’s larger than life and our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible… But he wasn’t.
“He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt. He became even bigger after he died than he was when he was alive. You don’t think it could have gotten any bigger. But it did.”
