The city of Hoquiam, Wash., will introduce a new holiday next year celebrating a renowned band with roots nearby.

The first "Nirvana Day" will take place on April 10, 2014, the same day that the beloved '90s band - featuring the late Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl - is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Cobain was born in Aberdeen, four miles away from Hoquiam. Nirvana's frontman also lived for a while in the latter town, as its mayor, Jack Durney, noted to local radio station KXRO.

Durney said that Cobain "and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it's good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments."
