ABERDEEN, Wash. The late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is igniting a new controversy in his hometown of Aberdeen, Wash. This one involves one of the quotes attributed to him on a new granite marker at an unofficial neighborhood park honoring him.

City officials are upset about the quote that says, "Drugs are bad for you. They will f--- you up." The marker contains the full F-word.

The Daily World reports the property is considered a right of way for both Tori Kovach, who lives adjacent to the land and had the idea for the park, and the city, which also owns the nearby Young Street Bridge, where Cobain is said to have spent some time in his youth.

Cobain struggled with drugs and committed suicide in 1994.

Grays Harbor Monument donated the granite stone, which bears eight quotes; Kovach submitted the ones he wanted used. Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson says the city Parks Board will consider the fate of the F-word on the marker.
