This past September, in the same month that marked the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album, In Utero, Kurt Cobain's mom announced that she was putting the Aberdeen, Wash., home where Kurt spent much of his adolescence on the market for a whopping $500,000.
It was just one of a handful of recent and weird headlines involving the legendary grunge frontman. For instance, the former "roommate" who was selling Kurt's skis and phone in a bizarre but humorous Seattle Craigslist post (read about it on Stereogum). And the unveiling of a weeping Kurt Cobain statue by Aberdeen's mayor during the inaugural Kurt Cobain Day. All of this led up to the 20th anniversary of the singer's untimely death next month.
