Annual 'Kurt Cobain Day' on 20 February
Legendary grunge icon Kurt Cobain will be remembered in his hometown of Aberdeen, Washington, every year on his birthday, 20 February. According to a report the proclamation reads: "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." Kurt formed Nirvana with Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington, in 1985. Kurt committed suicide on 5 April 1994. According to rollingstone.com Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Rondstadt. "I'd like to thank the committee not only for this induction, but also for recognising Nirvana for what we were: pure rock & roll," said drummer Dave Grohl after the announcement.
