Cobain's name doesn't get the bridge, but small landing
ABERDEEN, Wash. — The City Council in Aberdeen, Wash., voted 10-1 against a resolution to rename a bridge after the late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain. The council did vote to name a small body of land on the Wishkah River the Cobain Landing.
Eight citizens and several council members spoke against renaming the bridge, which is unofficially named after pioneer Alexander Young.
KXRO reports the vote against the Cobain rename drew applause from the audience at Wednesday's council meeting. Some people were concerned about memorializing the grunge rock musician because of his drug use, suicide and negative comments about his hometown.
