Bridge Not to Be Named After Kurt Cobain

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind album, so the band has been back in the press a lot recently. This news doesn’t have anything to do with that album, or even the band, but the late lead singer, Kurt Cobain. More after the jump.

Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle on April 8. 1994, the victim of what was officially ruled a suicide by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head.  Cobain had a long history of heroin addiction, which many believe lead to his suicide.

Cobain’s hometown, Aberdeen, Washington, has decided not to name a bridge in his honor.  The Guardian reports that the city council has decided to rename a small area of land after Cobain, rather than rename the North Aberdeen Bridge. Some of the city council members argued that naming the bridge after Cobain would glorify drug use and suicide.

Do you agree that naming the bridge after Cobain would send the wrong message?

Here’s my favorite Nirvana video – and the one that pretty much introduced Nirvana to the world!
