Hoquiam, Washington just became the coolest city in America. The little town two-hours outside of Seattle has marked April 10 as Nirvana Day. Kurt Cobain was born a few miles from Hoquiam and lived there for some time. The town’s Mayor, Jack Durney noted, "They bring great honor, I think as I say, to our entire community... And 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." Mr. Durney, we couldn’t agree more.

April 10 also marks another special occasion for Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and the late frontman Kurt Cobain — Nirvana will be inducted in to the Rock N’ Roll Hall of fame on that very same day along with Linda Ronstadt, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, the E Street Band, Hall & Oates (I smell a holiday, Philadelphia!) and Cat Stevens. If you can’t make the trek to the scenic and sleepy Pacific Northwest town of Hoquiam on April 10 to celebrate Nirvana Day, we’ve made a handy guide for how to celebrate this momentous occasion anywhere in the world.
