Yesterday was the first Kurt Cobain Day in Cobain’s onetime hometown of Aberdeen, Washington, a town that Cobain never exactly praised. By all accounts, it was pretty sad. But you won’t know just how sad it was until you watch the video below, a local news report that throws a ton of skepticism at the very idea of celebrating Cobain. (Cobain, the reporter notes, was “not exactly George Washington.” This is true!) We also get to see the various clumsy ways that the local government honored Cobain, which are a sight to behold. (The statue is crying.) Watch it all unfold below.
