There’s an HBO documentary about Kurt Cobain coming out next month, so it must be part of the zeitgeist that his old Los Angeles digs are now up for rent on Airbnb, so you could potentially stay in the same apartment where Cobain wrote “Heart-Shaped Box” the next time you’re in LA.
Given Kurt Cobain’s later legendary status, you might be surprised to see how modest this apartment is, a two-bedroom affair in the Fairfax/Melrose area of Los Angeles. Cobain shared the apartment with Courtney Love between the years 1991 and 1992, so the air of history is probably thick inside.
Sweetening the deal even more is the fact that the current occupants of Kurt Cobain’s old apartment have taken pretty good care of the place, as evidenced by the photos you can see in the gallery below. And if you’re looking for a place to stay in LA for around $290 a night, you can check out its Airbnb listing right here.
