Damn, So It's Really Been 15 Years...

I can barely even remember what I was doing in 1994. I was probably watching Power Rangers, going to kindergarten and eating mad apple sauce. This was years before I got deep into music but it was also the same year that Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain committed suicide. To put this into context, Nirvana was the shit in the early 90's. The band made hit after hit in a genre of music that they pretty much created. This would be the same as if someone like Lil Wayne committed suicide like two years after the Carter II; someone at the top of music just ending it. Bad example, but you get the idea because Nirvana dropped it's classic album In Utero in 1993 and Nevermind, which served as pretty much a Greatest Hits collection, two years earlier in 1991. Cobain struggled with a number of drugs during his last few years and it even showed through some of his music. [Something In The Way.] He committed suicide fifteen years ago on April 5, 1994 in his home in Seattle, Washington. I'm a really big Nirvana fan and you might be too if you've played Rock Band One> or Two. Really great music. Ow.
