Courtney Love + Kurt Cobain = Lyrical Equals

Over at my new favourite online mag The Quietus, there is a great post about how Courtney Love’s lyrics stood up to her late husband’s Kurt Cobain.

I was one of the many who never took much interest in Courtney Love but had still managed to come to the conclusion that she was an awful musician.

That all changed when I heard Live Through This. As soon as I heard the opening chords of Violet I was convinced that Courtney Love was indeed an amazing lyricist.
