Kid Cudi had the internet abuzz with his fashion-forward performance as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” — with two looks that were an apparent tribute to the late grunge rocker Kurt Cobain. First, the singer performed the song “Tequila Shots” wearing a T-shirt with a photo of the late “SNL” cast member Chris Farley, who died in 1997 at age 33 of a drug overdose. Cudi also wore a green cardigan that recalled the one that Cobain — who died by suicide at age 27 in 1994 — had worn during his band Nirvana’s “MTV Unplugged” performance the year before. Cudi returned later in the show with an even bolder callback to the late Cobain for his song “Sad People” — an ankle-length, spaghetti-strap floral dress reminiscent of a similar outfit that the Nirvana frontman wore during a photo shoot for the U.K. music magazine The Face.

Many online commentators note the apt choice of outfit and its lyrical connections, since “Sad People” concerns Cudi’s longtime battle with depression, including a 2016 stint in a rehab for “suicidal urges”: “Lettin’ go, ooh, this ain’t livin’ / I swim in pain / Never drown, keep my head up above the waves (get it, get it).” Others noted the timing of the performance, just days after the 27th anniversary of Cobain’s death. Watch the performances below.
