Today is the 20th anniversary of the death of Kurt Cobain. For many people, myself included, the news of Cobain’s death was one of those indelible “where were you when?” moments. It’s a bit of a shock to register that a full 20 years have passed, but the older I get, the faster the decades fly by with lightning speed.

Cobain’s substantial musical legacy lives on (here is one notable recent example). In the video below, Cobain and Nirvana perform one of their best songs, “Heart-Shaped Box.”
