(Newser) – Nirvana fans now have two choices of pilgrimage for April 10: They can trek to Cleveland to see surviving members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic as the band gets inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Or they can head to little Hoquiam, Washington, which has declared the 10th to be Nirvana Day to commemorate the occasion, reports Rolling Stone. Kurt Cobain was born and raised just a few miles away in Aberdeen.

“They bring great honor ... to our entire community," the mayor tells KXRO. "And I think that it’s good Kurt Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a little while, but he and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it’s good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments.”
