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:

HBO is releasing the first ever fully-authorized Kurt Cobain documentary, “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” next month.

The film, directed by Brett Morgen (“The Kid Stays in the Picture”), tracks Cobain’s life from his upbringing in Aberdeen, Wash., through his rise to fame and violent death.

Over the years, Nirvana has sold more than 75 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

“Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” premieres May 4 on HBO at 9 p.m.
