A theory earlier this week suggested the frontman is still alive and now playing the guitar right-handed.
Nirvana’s official Facebook page have responded to the latest internet conspiracy theory that suggests frontman Kurt Cobain is still alive, over 20 years after his death.

In the video from 2012, singer Ramiro Saavedra was seen performing the track from Nevermind on Peruvian talent show ‘Yo Soy’.

A new album of Cobain's home recordings is being released on November 13th.
Brett Morgen, the director of the Kurt Cobain documentary movie Montage of Heck earlier this year, has revealed the artwork and tracklisting for the “new” album Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings, which is released next month.
The filmmaker also took the time to defend the project from the criticism that it’s received from some quarters in an interview with Rolling Stone. “Just like The Bootleg Series furthers your understanding of Bob Dylan's process, I find that Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings furthers not just our understanding of his process but represents yet another angle, another side of Kurt — an artistic outlet that he was not necessarily able to work within the context of a three-piece band.”
