Kurt Cobain’s hometown of Aberdeen Washington unveiled a guitar memorial to their most famous resident on Tuesday April 5th, the 17th anniversary of his suicide in Seattle. (While many people still believe that his untimely death was not a suicide, the case has been closed and ruled as such. Sorry Pipes.) The ceremony was attended by a diverse group of fans and Aberdeen residents.
The sculpture of his signature Jag-stang was placed in a park near the Young Street bridge where Cobain spent time while growing up. The bridge attracts Cobain fans because it’s mentioned in his song “Something in the Way.”
In addition to the sculpture there’s a steel ribbon with lyrics from the Nirvana song “On a Plain” that say: “One more special message to go and then I’m done and I can go home.”
