Director Reveals What Kurt Cobain Would Have Done About President Trump


Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen discussed Kurt Cobain and President Donald Trump in a new NME interview.

“We know what Kurt would think of Donald Trump,” Morgen told NME. “I mean he’d be doing what Eminem just did.

“I mean Harvey Weinstein, Kurt has become a flag for subversion and misfits and the anti-capitalist, but that’s Kurt. I love that he has this space in our culture and society for this. He is needed now and I don’t know musically who’s leading the charge against Trump, whereas I can imagine if he was, it would be brutal. If he was still here with us. Trump was a product of the ’80s.”

He continued: “I mean he did [lead the charge against Trump], at the time he was one of the most vocal rockstars against sexism in the industry and a lot of the ills that were happening. He did fucking benefits to protest the rapes in Bosnia, he was very politically minded and was always on the side of righteousness.”
