Nirvana at the Reading Festival, 1992
Rumors swirled around the 1992 Reading Festival that Kurt Cobain's reported ill-health would force Nirvana to bail on their headlining gig. Cobain, clad in a hospital gown and ridiculous wig, was pushed onto the stage in a wheelchair and faked a dramatic swoon before leading the band through a blistering, brilliant set. Reading 1992 sealed Nirvana's legacy as the most important new band of the decade.
