Kurt Cobain Immortalized In Aberdeen

Lead singer of Nirvana and hero to every teenager who though they knew better than their parents Kurt Cobain has been set in stone at his home town of Aberdeen, Washington.

The grunge icon grew up in the small logging town of Aberdeen, Washington which he once referred to as ‘Twin Peaks without the excitement’. The town, however, obviously had their fingers in their ears when this week they unveiled a statute of the troubled singer.

The statue shares a slight likeness with the star as well as the confusing additives of what looks like a tissue box guitar and a single concrete tear running down his cheek, so nobody can forget what emotion he usually carried with him.

Erected to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death the artist behind the statue, Randi Hubbard, offered the art piece to Aberdeen right after Cobain’s death but was rejected at the time.

Aberdeen mayor Bill Simpson has faced criticism over the memorial due to Cobain’s drug addiction and suicide. Simpson has responded by saying "Yeah [Nirvana] weren't the best people…I'm not either." He also expressed his hope of the attraction being as popular to Nirvana fans as Graceland is to Elvis fans.

 The totally sincere and in no way contrived attraction will be housed in the Aberdeen Museum of History.
