It’s a sad day around the rock music world. 24 years ago today, Kurt Cobain was found dead.
Remaining band members bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl posted a short and simple tribute image to the band’s verified Twitter account, writing just “Dear Kurt—we miss you.”

Multiple fans posted messages of all different tones, some sad and gloomy, others choosing instead to focus on the more positive messages he promoted.
“If you’re a sexist, racist, homophobe, or basically an asshole, don’t buy this CD. I don’t care if you like me, I hate you.”

Many others also posted tributes and messages of remembrance, but the most notable post was his daughter, Francis Bean Cobain, who posted a short clip of her first ever original song to her Instagram story. Although it was only posted temporarily, fans say the a capella tune was beautifully reminiscent of her father’s works.
