(CBS Seattle) — Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014 will be accompanied by a local honor: Hoquiam will declare April 10 (of next year) “Nirvana Day.”
According to KXRO, Hoquiam Mayor Jack Durney says honoring the iconic band honors the “entire community.”
“I think that it’s good Kurt Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a little while, but he and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it’s good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments.” Durney said.
Nirvana will be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the same day as “Nirvana Day.”
The trio, originally formed in Aberdeen, was inducted into the Hall as soon as it was eligible. Nirvana’s debut sing, “Love Buzz” was released in 1988 on Sub Pop Records. The band would go on to sell more than 25 million albums in the United States and more than 75 million world-wide.
