Kurt Cobain: Our top five moments

By
To mark the 17 years since Kurt Cobain tragically died, we've cherry-picked our five favourite Nirvana videos to celebrate his legacy. Watch our top moments below:

5. 'You Know You're Right' (from Nirvana, 2002)


Recorded in January 1994, just three months before Kurt's death. One of the few hints at where the band might have gone after In Utero.

4. 'Molly's Lips' (from Incesticide), 1992)


A fine cover of a track by Glaswegians The Vaselines. Originally recorded for BBC Radio 1's John Peel in October 1990 and also featured on 1992 tour EP Hormoaning.

3. 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' (from Nevermind, 1991)


The breakthrough hit, famously dedicated to "Courtney Love... the best f**k in the world" during the band's first UK TV performance on The Word.

2. 'Heart Shaped Box' (from In Utero, 1993)


A great song, with a clip directed by Anton Corbijn (Control, The American). Kurt wrote to author William Burroughs asking him to appear. "As a fan and student of your work, I would cherish the opportunity to work directly with you," he said. Sadly it never happened.

1. 'Dumb' (from MTV Unplugged in New York, 1994)


For those that couldn't find the soul-wrenching, tuneful heart under all Nirvana's work, their MTV Unplugged set stripped away all the noise to leave it beating bare for all to see.
