Come As You Are by Nirvana, is today’s featured song.

On this day in music in 1994, Nirvana played their final concert. The climax of the band’s European tour, the gig took place in Germany at Munich’s Terminal Einz, an aircraft hangar. Augmented by future Foo Fighter Pat Smear on guitar, Nirvana began the concert with a version of The Cars’ “My Best Friend’s Girl” but the 23-song gig was plagued by sound problems; at one point, a brief power cut in the middle of their 1992 hit “Come As You Are” resulted in them stopping the song and re-starting it. The following month, on April 5th, the group’s leader Kurt Cobain took his own life.
