During the 90s, Nirvana was one of the, if not, the biggest rock groups to ever grace the earth. Unfortunately, the band’s front-man, Kurt Cobain, was unable to take the pressure of stardom, leading to his suicide in 1994. But a recent video which surfaced online seemed to suggest that the grunge superstar is alive and well.
Or someone who looks like Kurt Cobain.
According to reports, the person in the video is not the Nirvana vocalist, but a Peruvian singer named Ramiro Saavedra. The clip, which can be seen below, shows Saavedra performs Nirvana’s song, Come As You Are, at a TV show in April 2012.
The singer was even wearing the same outfit as Cobain during one of his live acoustic concerts in the 90s. Fans were also left wondering if the man in the video was the Nirvana frontman since he was also using a left-handed guitar. He even sounded like Cobain!
Of course, the Nirvana singer is happily rocking it out in the afterlife, though many fans were fooled by this bit of news. Some even took to Twitter to try and confirm the news about Cobain’s “comeback.”

Nirvana reacts to Kurt Cobain alive rumors
In a surprising move, the Nirvana Facebook page also commented on the news of Cobain’s alleged resurrection. According to their post, they sarcastically confirmed that the rock star is alive.

The Nirvana post went on to say “it is true, Kurt is alive. He needed time to learn to play the guitar with his right hand,” in their Facebook account. “Finding left-handed guitars is not easy. We are so happy to have him back and forgive him for all of the sadness that we have held so deeply in our hearts.”
Though some people were not able to comprehend the post immediately, and took the Nirvana announcement seriously.
@TheLadBible apparently he also learned how to play guitar with the opposite hand as well 😒
