Kurt Cobain left this world far too soon. He was a complicated personality, but he left behind many songs, wonderful memories, and a few pieces of hair as well. That hair is worth big money.

Cobain’s golden hair recently sold at auction for $14k. That is pretty impressive considering that there were only six strands in the lot. At $14,145 in total, that amounts to $2,357.50 per strand.

This hair came from Nirvana’s 1989 Bleach tour as Kurt got a trim on the road. TMZ noted that.

The winning bidder’s also taking home these pictures of Kurt’s haircut. He got the trim from his friend, Tessa Osbourne, and posed for a smiling snap with the scissors still in her hand.

This hair found its way to auction by means of a protected case, preserved under a plastic card. Iconic Auctions was the house responsible for unloading this famous DNA. We can only hope that whoever bought the hair plans to clone a new Cobain.

The longest strand measured at about 2.5 inches. So, we weren’t talking about very long locks. It will still make a great trophy in someone’s ultimate Nirvana collection.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
