Speaking of members of the 27 Club

Rolling Stone reports that most of the city council over in Aberdeen, Washington decided to veto naming a bridge after Kurt Cobain, former lead singer of Nirvana.

(Whether or not the city still has this “Welcome to Aberdeen: Come As You Are” sign up, I do not know.)

Although the city’s local parks board recommended the project, ultimately the city council decided naming a bridge after Kurt Cobain (who, in addition to substance abuse problems, reportedly struggled with mental health issues):

…would glorify Cobain’s drug use and suicide.

So, instead, they’re naming a strip of land after Cobain…

…and this strip of land is near a park where a guitar and statue memorialize Cobain.

*crickets*

Setting aside the multiple “This is how we the people of Aberdeen, Washington have been memorializing Kurt Cobain for years, thank you very much” examples, how do YOU feel about the Aberdeen city council’s decision that naming a bridge after him would “glorify” his substance abuse problems and suicide?
