Sorry, but I just found out about this kid named Kirko Bangz and the name sounds too similar to Kurt Cobain to me. As if he's so un-original that he had to play off of someone else's name to create his own. I find it slightly disrespectful to Kurt Cobain's family. Am I trippin' or am I right? What say you?

Maybe his name is Kirko and he likes to fingerbang.

Nah. His name is Kirk and he likes girls who have bangs. It's not disrespectful! 8)

I think it's more disrespectful to his parents for ignoring his given name.

You were partly right. It was intended to sound like Kurt Cobain.

Alright now THAT's a bit disrespectful, it's like saying "I'm the next Kurt Cobain!" And yeah Kir-Kobangz sounds a lot like Kurt Cobain.

Eminem is disrespecting candy! Biggie Smalls ripped off Wendy's! But seriously, no, get over it, it's just a name. You know who Kurt Cobain's family is? Courtney Love, possibly one of the most cracked out messes I've ever seen, and his daughter, who I'm sure is in barely better mental shape than her mother, given the fact that she has two very famous parents, one of whom looks like something you'd find crawling out of a gutter, and the other who shot himself in the head. I don't think somebody using a name similar to her dad's really holds a candle to the rest of her life.

I thought Kurt Cobain OD'd. (Which just adds more support to your case.)

Apparently he had so much heroin in him when they found him they actually questioned whether he would have still been able to shoot himself when he was that F'd up. The gunshot wound definitely killed him, but if he hadn't gotten around to it I'm sure he would have OD'd eventually. Are you thinking of Heath Ledger, maybe?
