Why Can’t Kurt Cobain’s Family Sell His Childhood Home?

It’s the place that cultivated one of music’s most intrepid minds, and yet Kurt Cobain‘s family can’t seem to get the darn thing off the market, because no one want to shell out the dough to buy the childhood home of the grunge rocker. The place comes with a few cool amenities, like the band names Cobain inscribed on one of the bedroom walls, and the furnishings and decor, which is honest to the time period the rocker grew up in.

In 2013, the family was asking for half a million dollars, but now it’s back on the market for $400,000 — a steal. Cobain’s family is hoping that someone buys the Aberdeen, Washington home and turns it into a museum. The listing reads:

There are a number of exciting possibilities for this unique property, including moving the building and incorporating it into a larger institution or private collection. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of rock history.

If you’re a musician, just imagine the possibilities and inspiration that you may find by merely sitting between its walls and under the roof. It would be like owning Little Richard’s piano, Bruce Springsteen’s guitar, or Britney Spears’ hair extensions.
