Washington City to Celebrate Nirvana Day in April
April 10 also is the day of the band's Rock Hall induction.
Kurt Cobain was born and raised in Aberdeen, Wash., and four miles away, another city in Washington state will honor the musician's legacy with a day in his band's name.
According to Rolling Stone, the city of Hoquiam, Wash., will hold its first Nirvana Day on April 10, 2014.
In an interview with local radio station KXRO, Hoquiam Mayor Jack Durney noted that, though the city isn't generally associated with the rock band, Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a brief time.
"They bring great honor, I think as I say, to our entire community," Durney said. "And I think that it's good Kurt Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a little while, but he and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it's good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments."
The special day won't be the only honor Nirvana receives on April 10. That day, the band will also be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on its first try, along with Linda Ronstadt, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, the E Street Band, Hall & Oates and Cat Stevens.
