Kurt Cobain of Nirvana passed away 24 years ago today.
Cobain, alongside bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, took the music world by storm as Nirvana. The group’s three studio albums, live releases and more have sold over 75 million copies worldwide, with 25 million of those in the United States alone.
Kurt’s body wasn’t found until April 8 when an electrician came to the house to install a security system and spotted the body. There was a gunshot to the head that was ruled a suicide.
