We want to hear from you: Where were you the day Kurt Cobain died?

It was 30 years ago this Friday — that Nirvana star Kurt Cobain, wracked by pain, addiction and depression, retreated to a greenhouse above the garage of his Seattle home and took his own life.

It was April 5, 1994. He was 27.

Family, friends and fans had known that Cobain was in trouble for some time. But that didn’t lessen the loss of a singer, guitarist and songwriter who had become an (unwilling) icon seemingly overnight.

The voice and face of the so-called grunge generation, Cobain shattered the slick, Spandex-clad spell of the 1980s when Nirvana's major-label debut, Nevermind, hit number one on the Billboard album chart in January 1992.

For a fleeting moment in pop history, Cobain’s sandpaper yowl, gnarled hooks and punk ethos ruled the mainstream.

And then, suddenly, it was over.
