Hoquiam, Washington, a town four miles from Cobain’s home declares April 10, 2014, “Nirvana Day”. Cobain, was born and raised in the nearby city of Aberdeen, and lived in Hoquiam for a brief period of time. Hoquiam Mayor Jack Durney said:
They bring great honor…to our entire community. 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.
