Kurt Cobain's hometown say no to bridge

Officials in Aberdeen, Washington have decided not to rename the North Aberdeen Bridge after the lat Nirvana star, Kurt Cobain.

Instead a small piece of land bordering the Wishkah river will be renamed after the singer.

Council spokesperson, Doug Paling said: "Leave the [bridge] as it is and let old history live with new history."

The bridge in question is famous for being the bridge referred to in the Nirvana song 'Something in the Way'. Cobain reportedly slept under it for a time.

An electric guitar statue of Cobain's Fender Jag-Stang guitar was unveiled in a nearby park on the 17th anniversary of Cobain's death in April this year.
