Kurt Cobain Was Wearing A “Half Japanese” Band Shirt When Died

We recently did this story: Kurt Cobain Was Listening To R.E.M.’s “Automatic For The People” Before He Took His Life.   We also noticed that according to the Police report after his suicide, Kurt was wearing a “T-shirt with two figures on it & “half japanese” lettered on it.”  Kurt was a fan of the punk rock band Half Japanese and even asked them to open up for Nirvana towards the tail end of their 1993 tour.

We couldn’t find a photo of Kurt wearing that shirt before but after some research, It seems like this might be the image that was on Kurt’s shirt that fateful day…

    It says dated 4/1/94 when Kurt didn’t even die until April 5, 1994 and he wasn’t even FOUND until April 8, 1994.

      that date on the report is in regards to the airplane ticket found in his pocket not the date of the report.
