Nirvana Mural Unveiled in Kurt Cobain's Hometown
A new mural honoring grunge icons Nirvana was recently presented in Kurt Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen, Washington.

Created by local artist Erik Sandgren, the piece is set for dedication and celebration on September 20, Seattle Pi reports.

As the artist noted, the 68-foot-long mural is meant to illustrate what influenced Nirvana, as well as the group's influence on popular culture.

"The mural really had to be about Nirvana as a group - about the miracle of their music as a confluence of many people, strands and influences," Sandgren stated.

Most would agree that the mural serves Nirvana better justice than the controversial crying Kurt statue unveiled back in February. You can check out the mural here.
