Aberdeen Is Keeping 'Come As You Are' Welcome Sign, the Mayor Reports
After hearing from fans of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, the Washington state city of Aberdeen is keeping the words "Come as you are" on a welcome sign, Associated Press reports.

The words are the title of Nirvana's song, featured in the band's iconic 1991's "Nevermind."

KBKW and KXRO report mayor Bill Simpson received more than 300 emails after reports that the reference to a Nirvana song would be dropped when the sign is replaced. He announced at Wednesday night's City Council meeting that the sign will stay.

"Come as you are" was added to the "Welcome to Aberdeen" sign in 2005 following the 10-year anniversary of Cobain's 1994 death in Seattle.

Cobain grew up in Aberdeen. While the city plans to replace the aging sign, there are no plans to change the message.
