Never Forgotten: Muse Pay Tribute On Cobain’s Death Anniversary



The band Muse paid their tribute to Nirvana’s front man, Kurt Cobain, on the 20th anniversary of his death. They performed at Lollapalooza Brazil over the weekend April 5-6th.

They used the gig to perform Nirvana’s cover for 1991’s song Lithium during a headlining set on Saturday night, April 5th.

While starting the song on stage, Muse front man, Matt Bellamy, said in Sao Paolo, “Someone great died 20 years ago – this next song is for Kurt Cobain.”

Kurt was actually found dead in his Washington home on April 8th, 1994, but medics ruled he had committed suicide three days prior to his body being found.

This performance at Lollapalooza Brazil came several days after the band had to call off another concert in Sao Paolo at the Grand Metropole on Thursday, April 3rd. reportedly, Bellamy has lost his voice during rehearsals.

This band, however, was not the only act paying tribute to the lost Nirvana singer. St. Vincent also performed Lithium during her concert in Chicago, /Illinois on Friday night, April 4th.

Nirvana was an American rock band formed by the late singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987.

Nirvana had numerous drummers, the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990. Despite releasing only three full-length studio albums in their seven-year career, Nirvana has come to be one of the most influential and important rock bands of the modern music era.
