Courtney Love vs. Nirvana – Infamous Rock Lawsuits
Several years after the 1994 suicide of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, his widow, Courtney Love, formed a business partnership called Nirvana L.L.C. with surviving members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl to oversee future uses of the band's music. But Love soon filed suit against the two, claiming that they were merely minor sidemen in Nirvana, that she joined the partnership under duress, and that as Cobain's widow, she should be the sole guiding force of Nirvana's legacy. Dave and Krist countersued, the two parties reached a settlement in 2002, and later that year, a greatest-hits album featuring Nirvana's final studio recording, 'You Know You're Right,' hit stores.
