Kurt Cobain would have been 52 years old today. (Imagine!) All over the world, surely, fans are sharing memories and videos and music from the days when Nirvana stood atop the rock 'n' roll summit for a brief moment in history.

We'll never forget his daughter, Frances Bean's nice little memorial to her father on Instagram back when he would have turned 50.

With that in mind, here's Nirvana performing at Empire Concert Club on East 9th Street in 1991. Check the setlist below.
