It's better to burn out than to fade away?

This is a line from Neil Youngs's 1979 song My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue) which became infamous after being quoted in Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's suicide note. Young later said that he was so shaken that he dedicated his 1994 album Sleeps with Angels to Cobain. Because of Cobain's suicide, in live concerts he now emphasizes the line "once you're gone you can't come back".
