When Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain died in April 1994, it spelled the end of a group whose music was still very much in demand. The album "MTV Unplugged" was released just seven months after the singer’s passing. The album debuted at number one on the US charts and sold over 300,000 copies in its first week of release, the best first-week sales the band had ever had.
