“I listen to Lithium,which is like all of the ‘90s songs and a lot of them are actually about me, which is interesting. There’s so many Smashing Pumpkins songs about me, there’s a Bush song about me.” Courtney Love, Anna Farris Is Unqualified Podcast (August 2016)
Courtney Love is a controversial figure. As the lead singer of alt rock trailblazers Hole, she notched up a critically acclaimed debut, a platinum selling follow up and a four-time grammy nominated third album. She was featured as one of Barbara Walters' “10 Most Fascinating People of 1995”. She produced rock radio staples like “Violet”, “Miss World” and “Celebrity Skin”. But most know her for her famous husband, and/or her less than personable public persona. As such she's gained a fair bit of scorn, with accusations ranging from “liar” to “murderer”. Today I will be looking at some of the songs that have been inspired by Mrs Love. Including “Bruise Violet” by Babes in Toyland, “I'll Stick Around” by Foo Fighters, “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani, “Starfuckers Inc” by Nine Inch Nails, “Heart Shaped Box” by Nirvana and “Professional Widow” by Tori Amos.
