Nihilistic punk rocker GG Allin had been claiming he would kill himself on stage for several years, but that didn't happen at his last show on June 27, 1993 at a club called the Gas Station formerly located here in what used to be a gas station in New York. The power went out or was shut off after just two songs, and GG, who was notorious for performing naked and cutting himself, roamed the streets around the club covered in blood and grime surrounded by his fans. He eventually ended up in the apartment of someone named Johnny Puke who lived nearby on Avenue B, and he died of a heroin overdose early the next morning.
