Attention all diehard Nirvana fans!

The Washington home that Kurt Cobain grew up in is officially on the market.

The lead singer's mother, Wendy O'Connor, has listed the property for $500,000—after it was assessed at less than $67,000.

The mattress that Cobain slept on as a child, along with a few photos of the frontman growing up, are also included in the sale in an effort to entice devotees to purchase the dilapidated home.

Cobain's childhood room still has sketches of band names he made on the walls—like Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin.

The home, which is located in the town of Aberdeen, is just a short walk from a riverfront park that is specifically dedicated to Cobain's memory.

In fact, the musician's family has said that it would encourage a museum be made in his honor at the family home in association with the park.

"We've decided to sell the home to create a legacy for Kurt, and yes, there are some mixed feelings since we have all loved the home and it carries so many great memories," Cobain's sister, Kim Cobain, explained in a statement.

"But our family has moved on from Washington, and (we) feel it's time to let go of the home." 

The timing of the listing is especially poignant as this week marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album, In Utero.
