Watch Courtney Love Deliver a Raw Cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’
Courtney Love has her own vaunted '90s catalog, but for a recent Hollywood party, the erstwhile Hole frontwoman covered another band of alt-rock greats.
Love was on-hand for singer and producer Linda Perry's party in celebration of her song "Hands of Love" last night (Jan. 5), and the tousle-haired and barefoot grunge leader marked the occasion by delivering a raw, haunting cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.” Check it out above and then compare her version to the original at the bottom of the page.
Perry penned "Hands of Love" for the movie Freeheld starring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page. Miley Cyrus performs the track, which is competing for a Best Original Song nomination at this year's Oscars.
Love wasn’t the only star on the evening’s lineup. According to Yahoo!, Christina Aguilera covered John Lennon’s “Mother”; the Cult’s Ian Astbury performed David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” and the Doors’ “Break on Through”; Juliette Lewis delivered her rendition of AC/DC’s “Dirty Deeds”; and Perry sang three Led Zeppelin tunes. Love's daughter, Frances Bean, was also in attendance.
