It was on this day 26 years ago, April 8th, 1994, that police found the body of Kurt Cobain in his home. He had committed suicide three days earlier.

At that time, MTV News ran a special about Kurt – his life, his death, his impact, depression, suicide and mental health issues. It was a fascinating look at a man who helped change the sound of music & rock and struggled with dealing with the fame, attention & other issues that came with it.

Check out some of the highlights in the video above.
