The Nirvana frontman rocked the world, all too briefly, in the grunge-heavy early 1990s before taking his life at the age of 27.
The kid Cobain
Kurt Cobain is pictured in his childhood home in Aberdeen, Wash., in an undated photo provided by his sister, Kim Cobain. Twenty years after the Nirvana singer's death, Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, is putting the two-story Aberdeen bungalow -- which is assessed at less than $67,000 -- on the market for $500,000. But she'd also be happy entering into a partnership with anyone who wants to turn it into a museum.
Things are going swimmingly
Grohl, Novoselic and Cobain pose for an underwater portrait during an October 1991 photo shoot in North Hollywood, Calif. The band's second album, "Nevermind," with a cover featuring a baby swimming after a dollar bill on a fish hook, was released on Sept. 24, 1991.
A sad goodbye
Cobain's body is taken to a medical examiner's van after the Nirvana singer was found dead at his Seattle home on April 8, 1994. Police determined that he died three days earlier of a self-inflicted shotgun wound. A suicide note was found next to his body. He was 27 years old.
