The above article on the A.V. Club website makes the following claim:
This might not be true, but the legend is that this is the song that Kurt Cobain had cued up in his CD player when he was found dead.
The FeelNumb website makes a similar claim - Kurt Cobain Was Listening To R.E.M.’s “Automatic For The People” Before He Took His Life
(Everybody Hurts is on the album Automatic For The People)
Are these claims true?
