Cobain took his own life on April 5, 1994, leaving behind daughter Frances Bean and wife Courtney Love.
Just 27 when he died, his mother, Wendy O'Connor remarked at the time: "Now he's gone and joined that stupid club", referring to the common age at which many other musical luminaries passed away.
Released in 1991, Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind sold 10 million copies. The band also enjoyed chart-topping success with In Utero, its final release before Cobain's death.
