If you're one of the very few people in the world with both an irrational Nirvana obsession and lots of money to throw around—most rich people only listen to classical music or Jay-Z—then, boy, do we have the house for you.
The late Kurt Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, has put Cobain's Aberdeen, Washington, childhood home on the market this month, which marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album, In Utero. The Associated Press describes the house as "tired," and calls it "a 1923 structure with dingy carpeting, water-stained wooden shingles on some interior walls, and a recent coat of yellow paint." Because it's so rundown the home was recently appraised at less than $67,000, but O'Connor is asking for $500,000.
What will that extra $433,000 get you? A mattress in the attic that reportedly belonged to Kurt and some scribbling on the walls attributed to his childhood angst, including "Communication Breakdown!" (see below) and band names like Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin. The house is also walking distance to a riverfront park dedicated to Kurt.
"We've decided to sell the home to create a legacy for Kurt, and yes, there are some mixed feelings since we have all loved the home and it carries so many great memories," Cobain's sister, Kim, told the AP. "But our family has moved on from Washington, and (we) feel it's time to let go of the home."
Cobain's family said that they would also be willing to convert the home into a museum if someone were interested. You can find more information on how to buy the house here.
