    On this day in 1994, rock icon Kurt Cobain committed suicide inside his home in Seattle, Washington in 1994. On March 4 of that year, Cobain was taken to hospital in a coma. It was officially stated as an accident but many believe it to have been an unsuccessful suicide attempt or heroin overdose. He reluctantly checked into a rehabilitation clinic in Los Angeles at the end of March, but was said to have fled after only a few days.On April 8, Cobain's body was found in his home. In his arms was a shotgun, which had been fired into his head. Near him laid a suicide note written in red ink. It was addressed to his wife Courtney Love and his daughter Frances Bean Cobain. On his suicide note, he quoted Neil Young’s lyric that it was “better to burn out than to fade away.”

      Sponge Cola is back with an interesting pair of songs to close out 2017 and at the same time open 2018. Fresh off their latest hit “Bahaghari," the band is set to release “Tempura" and “Kunwari."   Universal Records proudly launches "Kunwari" alongside "Tempura".   Bassist Gosh Dilay penned the bittersweet “Kunwari," that despite being a lighthearted song, deals with something everyone is all too familiar with: unrequited love. Framed by Dilay's trademark Filipino, “Kunwari” emphasizes the push and pull between being eager risk takers, and safe calculated people when it comes to love.   Both “Tempura" and “Kunwari” are available on all digital platforms!
