Almost 20 years after his death, Kurt Cobain day is now official in Aberdeen, Washington. The mayor of the city, Bill Simpson, along with the city council declared that February 20th, which is the singer's birthday, will became Kurt Cobain day annually. Local radio station KXRO Newsradio reviewed the city's proclamation, which stated: "Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.” Simpson stated that as plans develop the event may turn into Kurt Cobain week.

Cobain was honored years earlier on Aberdeen's welcome sign, which reads “Come As You Are” after the popular Nirvana song of the same name. Hoquiam has also announced they would celebrate Nirvana day this year, with events scheduled for April 10th. This is also the date when Nirvana along with Kiss, Peter Gabriel, and Hall and Oates will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Last year was the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album "In Utero." It was reissued in several different formats, including an expansive super deluxe edition. To get your copy, visit the Nirvana website.
