In honor of what would have been Kurt Cobain's birthday today, we bring your our favorite funny clips of him and Nirvana, some of which we've seen a million times and some of which we just found today. (If you've never seen the very strange footage of the band playing lathered-up Twister with Smashing Pumpkins, you're in for a treat.)
