Hard as it is to believe, today marks the 19th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death. The tragedy led to the immediate end of Nirvana, just three years after they broke through to previously unimaginable levels of mainstream success with Nevermind. The guys in Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard (not to mention Michael Jackson) would never have dreamed that these three grungy guys from Seattle were going to take over MTV and make almost everything before them seem irrelevant, but that's exactly what happened.  

How Nirvana Made Nevermind

Now we have a question for you: what is your favorite Nirvana song? They only made three legit studio albums, but they left behind a ton of great songs. There are plenty of great lesser-known tracks from the Blew EP, their MTV Unplugged in New York live set and the 2004 box set With the Lights Out. Pick whatever song you want, from huge radio hits like "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Come as You Are" to deep cuts like "Mrs. Butterworth" and "Oh, the Guilt." Just please only vote once, and only for a single song.
