Weeping Kurt Cobain Statue Unveiled For 'Kurt Cobain Day'

274571_140220_Kurt_Cobain_Aberdeen_11_591w(Radio.com) Art may be subjective, but it’s safe to say that the recently unveiled statue of Kurt Cobain in his hometown of Aberdeen, Washington is not going to win any awards anytime soon.

The statue was part of the town’s Kurt Cobain Day, which they celebrated Thursday (Feb. 20) on what would have been Cobain’s 47th birthday. The statue itself features Cobain sitting on a stool playing an acoustic guitar with one lonely tear dribbling out of his eye. We’ll assume this is an homage to the Virgin Mary or perhaps the crying Indian who wishes you would just stop littering.

Not that everyone in Aberdeen was looking to honor the man. Case in point, a local news station referred to their hometown hero on air as “the lead singer of Nirvana… a well known heroin addict who shot himself nearly 20 years ago.”

The report itself focused on the controversial decision to celebrate Cobain’s legacy and features one reporter ticking off Cobain’s less than stellar attributes-drug use, vandalism, lack of hometown pride-and eventually makes the bold statement we’ve all been wishing someone would make, Kurt Cobain was “no George Washington.” No, in fact, he wasn’t.

But let’s all shed one tear in solidarity with Cobain’s clay statue and hope the dedication at Nirvana’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction on April 10 is a bit more complimentary. Nirvana will also be the recipient of its 24-hour commemoration on the same day as the band’s induction into the Hall of Fame, when the small city of Hoquiam, Washington, celebrates the first Nirvana Day.

Watch the local news broadcast to get a closer look at the now infamous Cobain statue here.
