Courtney Love, ex-spouse of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, has recently revealed her most cherished songs from the iconic grunge outfit. According to NME, She was asked by a viewer what her favorite Nirvana songs were during a Q&A on Instagram live session.
She named four songs which she holds in high regard, with the In Utero album being a clear winner. While “In Bloom” from the band’s ground-breaking 1991 release Nevermind was included, she named three tracks from the group’s final LP In Utero – “Serve the Servants,” “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle” and the stunning single “Heart-Shaped Box.”
Although no video of the session has been posted, followers of the singer were able to stream the live event on Sunday night. The singer has often taken to Instagram to keep in touch with fans, memorably posting a pictorial tribute to Cobain on the social media platform in July of last year.
The Hole figurehead hit the headlines in 2012 due to her blossoming friendship with fellow crooner Lana Del Rey. She told Del Rey that “Heart-Shaped Box” was really about her vagina, and to think about her the next time she performs a live cover of the song.
Her marriage to Cobain is a much storied one, with a recent documentary shedding light on the two’s turbulent relationship. Released in 2015, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck was a revealing piece of work, chronicling the troubled singer’s rise and fall. As the only authorized film of its kind, Courtney Love provided rare footage and interview material for the movie.
Outside of her high-profile marriage, she is best known as the lead singer and guitarist for the ‘90s, grunge four-piece Hole. The group’s most successful works include their 1994 sophomore effort Live Through This, and the 1998 follow-up Celebrity Skin.
