This month marks the "deathiversary" of grunge icon Kurt Cobain. The Nirvana front man has been all over the news this year. Kurt Cobain Day was established in February (the 20th, if you care about those things), Here We Are Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain was published, and there’s currently an online campaign to save the singer’s childhood home from ruin and hopefully turn it into a museum. If you’re feeling morbid there’s also those newly released police photos of the death scene that greeted an electrician who arrived at Cobain's home to install a security system.
In fact, the dark final days of Cobain have been documented in The Last 48 Hours of Kurt Cobain — a 2007 BBC film that tries to eschew the sensationalism that pervaded the performer's life and has followed Cobain into death. Open Culture notes that Nirvana fans are divided on the documentary, but now you can watch it in full and decide for yourself.
