Talented singer/songwriter with the grunge band Hole, and recently solo. Contrary to popular belief, Hole were bigger than Nirvana when Courtney met that band's frontman, Kurt Cobain.
Often blamed for his death by raving mad conspiracy theorists, who also believe that we never landed on the moon, Elvis is alive, and McCartney is dead.
See scapegoat for people looking for someone to blame for Cobain's death.
Person One: "I hate Courtney Love, she killed Kurt and writes bad songs."

Courtney Love, lead singer of the band Hole, inspired girls everywhere to pick up a guitar and write about whatever the hell they want. She is one of the most influential female artists of the nineties, and her snarling, intelligent, lyrics, thrashing, faux-pop guitar sound and fashion sense she herself has branded "kinderslut" still resonates throughout today's alternative rock scene, most notably among girl bands.

Theories abound as to the true circumstances of her husband Kurt Cobain's death in 1994 and Courtney is often accused of murdering, or having a hand in his demise.

After years of adoring both Hole and Nirvana, I think this is probably the most absurd and laughable piece of bullshit doing the rounds. Kurt adored Courtney, ("I'm just overwhelmed by the fact that I'm in love on this scale") but the pressures of addiction, fame and depression proved too much for him. He killed himself - it's horrible, but don't deride an innocent woman.. she loved him and I think he would hate her to be blamed in any way for his passing.

Courtney is hounded by tabloids in the same way Peter Doherty is, and she has fallen victim to drug addiction, especially in the aftermath of Kurt's death. However she now has custody of their daughter Frances Bean, is due to release a new album (How Dirty Girls Get Clean) soon and appears to slowly be learning to live with the loss of her husband and her own problems.

Courtney is a fashion icon, a mother, a recovering addict, a star and one of the greatest musicians of our time. She is a true inspiration. WE LOVE YOU!

Vocalist and guitarist in the band Hole, who has also gone on to have a solo career. She was married to Nirvana singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain.
Unfairly hated by zealous Nirvana fans who love absurd conspiracy theories.
Nirvana and Kurt are great. Hole and Courtney are great. Kurt and Courtney loved each other. Kurt got depressed and killed himself. Courtney got depressed, and took loads of drugs. Everyone else gets depressed.
Cretin : Courtney killed Kurt Cobain! Because being famous must be soooo cool, and you wouldn't ever get unhappy or anything, so she must have done! GARGH! I want o kill her, because I am frustrated and stupid and really quite ugly and I'm doomed to grow up and live a really boring life and get smacked in the chops by some big fat hippo type thing!

What the fuck?
