On this Day 24 Years Ago, Kurt Cobain was Found Dead at his Home in Seattle.

The death was ruled a suicide as a result of a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head.   High amounts of heroin were found in his body. His body wasn’t discovered until three days later by a worker who was there to install a security system. I hope you have an hour and 33 minutes, because here’s an uncut version of the MTV Unplugged special with Nirvana, and it is great. RIP Kurt, you are missed.
