Last year, after a long run, Elvis Presley fell from the #1 spot in the "Top-Earning Dead Celebrities" list. When Kurt Cobain's widow Courteney Love sold her dead husband's catalog, Cobain was vaulted to the #1 spot.
Cobain's reign has proved to be fleeting; according to Forbes Magazine, Elvis is once again the king of dead celebrities, earning $49 Million last year, beating out his main competitors, John Lennon and Peanuts creator Charles Schultz by wide margins. Cobain didn't even chart this year. Eat the King's dust, Cobain!
