Weird Crying Kurt Cobain Statue Unveiled in Frontman's Hometown
Celebrating the inaugural Kurt Cobain Day, late Nirvana frontman's hometown of Aberdeen unveiled a statue of crying Cobain in the local Museum of History.

Although the act of honoring the rock icon was met with nothing but praise, most found it difficult not to notice how strange the weeping Kurt statue looks. You can check out the work of local artist Randi Hubbard below and see it for yourself.

"We should have done this a whole heckuva long time ago," Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson told King 5, adding, "Yeah they [Nirvana] weren't the best people, I'm not either."

During a separate KOMO 4 interview, Simpson noted, "Paul McCartney said Kurt Cobain was a genius, that said a lot for me."

"Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements," Bill's official statement reads.
