Sculpture dedicated to Kurt Cobain

Aberdeen, Washington - A sculpted guitar memorial to Kurt Cobain has been unveiled in a park in the Nirvana frontman's Washington state hometown.

The dedication in Aberdeen on Tuesday marked the 17th anniversary of Cobain's suicide in Seattle. A diverse group of fans and Aberdeen residents, many born after Cobain's 1994 death, attended the ceremony.

The sculpture was placed in a park near the Young Street bridge where Cobain spent time while growing up. The bridge attracts Cobain fans because it's mentioned in his song Something in the Way.

Besides the concrete guitar, there's a steel ribbon dangling in the air with lyrics from the Nirvana song On a Plain that say: "One more special message to go and then I'm done and I can go home."
