Come as you are, as you were, as I want you to be...

For millions of Nirvana fans his spirit lives, and some make pilgrimages to his home town.

Those who do today will get a special welcome.

A new sign telling people to "Come As You Are" was added below the "Welcome to Aberdeen" sign near the bluff in East Aberdeen on Monday.

"Come As You Are" is the name of one of the grunge band's most well-known and commercially successful songs. It was released on Nirvana's groundbreaking 1991 album, "Nevermind."

And that folks, is the only reason to go to Aberdeen Washington, trust me on this.
