Watch Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love Sing Together
Footage of Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain singing with his wife Courtney Love has made its way on the Internet. Grunge’s first couple can be seen in a never-before-released duet called ‘Stinking of You’ which you can watch below.
The video comes from ‘Hit So Hard,’ the documentary about Hole drummer Patty Schemel’s battle with drug addiction and coping with rock fame. It also reflects on the Seattle music scene explosion in the 90’s.
It’s not technically a full song as the clip is barely a minute long. However, watching Kurt and Courtney’s playful banter is a nice change of pace considering most news about the Hole frontwoman isn’t too flattering (like accusing the Muppets of raping her husband’s legacy). Love casually strums along on an acoustic guitar while Cobain later joins her on the tune.
Home video of the couple spending time with their daughter Frances Bean Cobain is thrown in, along with a cameo from Foo Fighters‘ Pat Smear among others. The Cobains seem to be having a genuinely good time together. It’s almost heartbreaking to watch considering the events that were to come shortly after that video was shot.
Enjoy this moment while it lasts, as Love will more than likely say something crazy about Foo Fighters leader and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl soon. Hopefully she checks her facts before going on another Twitter rant.
