Kurt Cobain's "Montage of Heck" documentary and the mixtape therein

The mixtape known as "Montage of Heck" is the centerpiece – the namesake – of the documentary (coming to the public soon) about Kurt Cobain. Inside this mixtape is a cacoffiny of oddities. Everything from KISS to The Hobbit, the Star Wars audiobook to Queensrÿche. It's not your average mixtape. The same is true of the documentary. Created using home movies, tapes, concert footage, and other unseen bits of footage and audio, the creators of Montage of Heck have made a showing of the lead singer of Nirvana's life – and subsequent violent death.

The documentary Montage of Heck is an authorized documentary. That means it was made with the authorization of those that own the rights to Cobain's ... remains. That means Courtney Love.

You'll find a collection of creative people speaking in this trailer for the documentary as well. Love, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and a few more. Executive producers include Frances Cobain*, Debra Eisenstadt, Sheila Nevins, Dave Morrison, and Sara Bernstein.

*That's Frances Cobain, Kurt and Courtney's only daughter.

This film was directed by Brett Morgen and was released to UK cinemas last month.

You'll be able to see it on HBO on May 4th, 2015. After that, it'll be distributed digitally by Home Box Office (USA) and Universal Pictures.
