Was Kurt Cobain Religious???

Kurt Cobain had an interest in Buddhism but by all accounts he was considered Agnostic.  When he was a teenager he became a Christian for a while, but then abandoned it and claimed to be Satanist and to hate god.  At other times he claimed to be an atheist as well.

Cobain did have a penchant for taking photos with religious backgrounds, literally, Religion in the background.  Check these out these photos of Kurt mixed with some religious idolatry I came across…

This photo was taken in 1989 while on tour in Europe.

The band name Nirvana also strikes a religious chord.  Here is the definition…

nirvana |nərˈvänə, nir-|noun (in Buddhism) a transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self, and the subject is released from the effects of karma and the cycle of death and rebirth. It represents the final goal of Buddhism.
