Kurt Cobain of the band Nirvana poses in full grunge-rock-star mode at the 1993 MTV Music Video Awards. This was at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, California on September 2, 1993. Nirvana's album In Utero was released later that month and went on to sell over five million copies. Kurt Cobain was 5'9" tall, according to CelebHeights.com. Sadly, Cobain died less about seven months after this photo was taken, shooting himself on April 5, 1994.
