According to NME, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain lived in Hoaquim for a while. The town is only four miles away from Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen, Washington.
The first "Nirvana Day" will take place on April 10, 2014, which is also the day Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, USA Today reports.
"This is a great honor," Nirvana member Krist Novoselic said after the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honorees were announced. "Thank you to the people who nominated and voted for us. Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain. And to everyone who's kept rock music going strong for 60 years and counting."
Nirvana drummer David Grohl added:
"I'd like to thank the committee not only for this induction, but also for recognizing Nirvana for what we were: pure rock & roll. Most of all, thank you to all of the fans that have supported rock & roll throughout the years, and to Kurt and Krist, without whom I would not be here today."
Recently, Hoquiam mayor, Jack Durney, said on KXRO radio that Kurt Cobain Krist Novoselic are "part of our community and I think it's good honor our sons and their great accomplishments."
In 2012, Nirvana members David Grohl and Krist Novoselic joined Paul McCartney on stage at Madison Square Garden for the "12-12-12" Hurricane Sandy benefit concert.
They performed together once again in July 2013 when Paul McCartney's Out There tour stopped in Seattle.
