Aberdeen names patch of land after Kurt Cobain

I’m sure the city council of Aberdeen, Washington had more to discuss than Kurt Cobain when met recently, but Kurt Cobain was definitely on the agenda and he was both a winner and loser in city votes.

The council first voted on whether to name a bridge after Kurt Cobain. The bridge is where Cobain had claimed to had slept under frequently, but, apparently, that wasn’t enough to get the bridge to carry his name. The city voted 10-1 against the measure, inciting cheers in the audience, many of whom did not want such a prominent spot associated with Cobain’s “drug use, suicide and negative comments about his hometown.”

But, the silver lining is that something will be named after Cobain — a small patch of land in the Wishkah River, where the title of the live collection From The Muddy Banks Of Wishkah comes from. Cobain Landing will undoubtably become a pilgrimage spot for Nirvana diehards, unlike the bridge, which will remain the Alexander Young Bridge.
