Twenty one years ago Sunday, Kurt Cobain died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound at age 27.
The Nirvana frontman, who entertained millions and inspired countless more through his music, was found dead on April 5, 1994.
Police ruled his death a suicide, but many Nirvana fans continue to question whether that was the real cause.
To honor Cobain’s memory, his fans took to Twitter on Sunday to remember the late musician.
Below is a sampling of tributes to Cobain:
