Kurt Cobain remains one of music's most influential artists despite being dead for 20 years. 

The troubled Nirvana frontman died on this date in 1994 from a self-inflicted shotgun wound. 

The band is set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday. 

Seattle police recently released previously unseen photos taken at the scene of his death, fueling speculation from conspiracy theorists of whether Cobain actually committed suicide.
