ABERDEEN, Wash. -- After hearing from Kurt Cobain and Nirvana fans across the United States, the Washington state city of Aberdeen is keeping the words "Come as you are" on a welcome sign.
Mayor Bill Simpson announced at Wednesday night's city council meeting the sign will stay.
The mayor received more than 300 emails after reports that the reference to a Nirvana song would be dropped when the sign is replaced. "Come as you are" was added to the "Welcome to Aberdeen" sign in 2005 following the 10-year anniversary of Cobain's 1994 death in Seattle.
Cobain grew up in Aberdeen. While the city plans to replace the aging sign, there are no plans to change the message.
