Kurt Cobain: Latest Strange Item Up for Auction is a Pack of Cigarettes
Kurt Cobain is often the subject of some interesting auctions. The latest auction is for a pack of cigarettes once owned by the late Nirvana frontman.
This pack of cigarettes is part of an auction from Julien’s called “Played, Worn & Torn: Rock ‘N’ Roll Iconic Guitars and Memorabilia.” The listing on the Julien’s website shows an unopened pack of American Spirit regular menthol cigarettes. Its description reads, in part, “American Spirit menthols were the preferred brand of the late rock star. This pack was saved by Cobain’s roommate at the Los Angeles rehab clinic where he briefly stayed several days before taking his own life.”
The pack of cigarettes was estimated to sell for between $800 and $1,200. However, the current bid is for $3,000. Full details on the lot and the entire auction can be found at Juliens.com.

The Kurt Cobain Biopic Cast By AI
Back in August, American Songwriter utilized ChatGPT to create and cast a Kurt Cobain biopic. Truth be told, the artificial intelligence engine did a decent job.
To begin with, the film would be called Smells Like Teen Spirit: The Kurt Cobain Story. The film would feature three acts. The first act would focus on Cobain’s tumultuous childhood and discovery of music. Its second act would focus on Nirvana’s exploding popularity, and the third act will chronicle Cobain’s tragic last days.
Now, as for the cast, ChatGPT had some interesting choices. Timothée Chalamet would play Cobain, while Saoirse Ronan would play Courtney Love. ChatGPT chose Bill Skarsgård to play Krist Novoselic and Joe Keery to play Dave Grohl.
Cobain’s parental figures have some significant star power, too. Frances McDormand was cast as his mother, Wendy O’Connor, while Josh Brolin was cast as his father, Don Cobain. Meanwhile, Cobain’s aunt/legal guardian, Kim, would be played by Amy Adams.
While we’re not terribly impressed with the biopic-by-numbers plot of this proposed film, we have to hand it to ChatGPT for putting together a great cast.
