This boy grew up to lead one of the most influential bands of the past quarter century, leading a musical revolution from his home in the Pacific Northwest. The band kicked around on indie labels for a couple of years before signing with a major and becoming one of the biggest groups on the planet.

Ironically, his breakthrough video was set in a place that didn't hold much interest for him growing up (and where this yearbook photo was shot): school. Sadly, years of drug abuse and other problems eventually caught up with him, and he died a few short years after his band's first No. 1 album. Do you know who the person is in the yearbook photo?
