Kurt Cobain's life and death is unarguably the most discussed, dissected and speculated benchmark in the music industry. Now, twenty years after his death, we're still enamored with the man who sparked the grunge period and shaped the music of the '90s.

Despite the end of Cobain's life and career, headlines constantly emerge: "20 Years After Kurt's Death: What Changed and What Didn't..."; "New Death Scene Photos Released..."; "Intimate Photographs of Troubled Rock Star..."; "Here's What Kurt Cobain Would Look Like At Age 46." We just can't seem to get enough of the notorious Nirvana frontman.

It's no surprise that Nirvana is played on the radio as often as contemporary songs. Still, twenty years later, Cobain's music is reaching a new, core audience, many of whom weren't even born before Cobain died.

Here's what Cobain had to say about his life under the media's microscope.
