Skateboarder Tony Hawk is using today, which would have been Kurt Cobain’s 56th birthday, to raise mental health awareness by auctioning Cobain’s skateboard from 1985. It is decorated with Cobain’s painting of Iron Maiden. Hawk bought the board last year, an original Jeff Phillips model, a skateboarder who died by suicide in 1993, 3 months before Cobain.
