Nirvana  gets inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this Thursday, and today marks the 20th anniversary of frontman Kurt Cobain's tragic passing.

Here are five of my favorite Cobain quotes. Never forget.

“I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”

“The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.”

“I never wanted to sing. I just wanted to play rhythm guitar - hide in the back and just play.”

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.”

“Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.”
