Legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s childhood house is up for sale. Full details below.

Kurt Cobain’s home in Aberdeen, Washington, is up for sale at the asking price of $400,000 (262,440 GBP). Cobain lived at the 1210 E. 1st Street address between the age of 2 to 9 years old, and then again from 16 to 20.

According to Redfin Real Estate the original asking price for the home was listed at $500,000 (328,050 GBP) in a neighborhood where the median price for homes is $100,000 (65,610 GBP), but has just been marked down this week.

Redfin also states that, “his bedroom still has holes in the walls from where he punched them, and there are Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin logos stenciled on the walls.”

Louder Than War - U.S. Editor. Los Angeles native and founder of Club Underground (L.A.'s longest running Post-Punk/Indie night), always looking for good music (new or old) to share/discuss.I love to read anything related to music regardless of genre so long as it is even remotely interesting. As a music fan and DJ, my interest in records started very early and my collection is filled with Indie, post-punk, new wave, northern soul, motown, glam, punk, brit pop with a splash of jazz, hip-hop and rockabilly sprinkled in.


  1. Well heck, for that low bit of money, you could make a museum out of it. Sounds like you wouldn’t have to change much.

    • You’re right J. the buyer can leave it as is for the most part.
      It will be interesting to see what develops. The city could even purchase the place and give it landmark status, or zone it as a commercial structure. They will make their money back and then some for years to come it would seem.
