Although it may be a few days past, April 5th is a day in which we lost two of the greatest and most influential voices in grunge. Kurt Cobain of Nirvana and Layne Staley of Alice in Chains. Both men lost their lives on April 5th, just 8 years apart (Kurt in 1994 & Layne in 2002). Rolling Stone made a list of the 50 Greatest Grunge albums of all time, and respectively both bands had multiple albums on the list with Alice in Chains Dirt hitting number six and Nirvana’s Nevermind at number one (The full list can be found below).
We have nothing but love and respect for both artists and can only imagine the success they would have achieved had they still been alive today. Celebrate their lives and success by rocking out to two of the greatest grunge bands to have ever hit the scene! Layne & Kurt, we thank you for what you’ve contributed to music. Hopefully you two are rocking out together as we speak!
