Fans Remember Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain Anniversary

Fans across the world have paid their respects this weekend on what was the 20th anniversary of the death of iconic grunge rocker Kurt Cobain.

This morning marks two decades since the police discovered the 27-year-olds body in the small apartment in the garage of his Seattle mansion, now dubbed the greenhouse.

Fans have flocked to the home from around the state and the country to leave flowers, handwritten notes and unopened beers for the singer.

Foo Fighters and Muse were among several bands to acknowledge the anniversary over the weekend, taking to social media and live gigs to pay tribute to the Nirvana front man.

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl’s own band, Foo Fighters linked an image of Cobain and a stream of The Beatles’ ‘In My Life’, a song beloved by the late singer and one which was played at his funeral. 

On the other side of the world, Muse covered the Nirvana song ‘Lithium’ during their gig at Lollapalooza in Brazil; lead singer Matt Bellamy saying, “someone great died 20 years ago, this next song is for Kurt Cobain”. 

St Vincent, too, covered 'Lithium' in tribute at her gig at the Riviera in Chicago. 

Later this week Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, alongside legends like Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates and Cat Stevens, at a ceremony in Brooklyn.

After a brief but emotional post about Kurt on her Facebook page, Courtney Love made comment with The Telegraph and spoke of the importance of maintaining Cobain’s legacy, telling that she intends to be present at the Hall of Fame induction.

For passionate fans, this anniversary has brought back into the spotlight their conspiracy theories surrounding Cobain’s death; one theorist suing the Seattle Police Department amid claims that Cobain was instead murdered. 

Investigation back in 1994 determined that the singer had taken a massive overdose of heroin before taking his own life with a shotgun and a recent re-investigation conclude the same result taking into account previously undeveloped film from the scene.
