Following in the X-Filesish tradition of turning everything into a conspiracy, the death of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain was a shock to the systems of most of those in the alternateen cesspool. Conspiracy theories ranged from "the government killed Kurt" to "Courtney killed Kurt" ... everything except the obvious, "Kurt killed Kurt."
