Today (Apr. 5) marks the 24th anniversary of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain‘s death. The grunge icon was discovered in a room above the garage of his Seattle home on Apr. 8, 1994, though investigators later determined that the 27 year-old rock star had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound three days earlier. The band’s surviving members took to their official Twitter account on Thursday morning to pay tribute to Cobain, writing simply, “Dear Kurt — We miss you.”
The touching message from the surviving members — former drummer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic — accompanied with an iconic photo from photographer Michael Levine.

Grohl and Novoselic weren’t the only ones who remembered Cobain on the grim anniversary. The singer’s only child, 24 year-old Frances Bean Cobain, posted a clip of her first-ever original song on Thursday morning — a bracing, soulful a cappella snippet with dark lyrics reminiscent of her father’s often morbid oeuvre — and a number of fans also paid homage.
