Authors of the first documentary about the leader of the American rock band 'Nirvana', Kurt Cobain, released a trailer which will officially be shown on American television in May, as music magazine 'NME' reports.

A documentary 'Montage of Heck' is the first authorized film about Cobain, who was found dead on April 5, 1994 in his home in Seattle.

The director of the film is Brett Morgen, who also directed 'Crossfire Hurricane', a documentary about a legendary British rock group 'Rolling Stone'.

Film about Cobain consists of archive videos of the musician shot on several different occasions, some sketches, poetry and audio recordings.

Co-producers of the film are Cobain's partner, a singer Courtney Love, and their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.

Cobain and 'Nirvana' had a great impact on the development of music, popularizing a special subgenre of alternative rock, grunge.

Cobain's most popular song, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' from 1991, marked the beginning of decline of some of the dominant music genres from the 80's. Later, it was proclaimed a 'hymn of the generation', and Cobain has, thanks to that, unwillingly accepted the title of the representative of the 'Generation X'.

Some other famous songs which he authored were "Lithium", "About a Girl", "Polly", "In Bloom", "Come as You Are", "Heart-Shaped Box", "All Apologies" and a controversial song named "Rape Me".
