Courtney Love Attacks Foo Fighters

In this video, the Hole singer says Grohl steals money from Cobain's daughter and made the crowd chant "Foo Fighters Are Gay".

Ultimate Guitar

Courtney Love launched a scathing attack on Dave Grohl at a Hole show in Brazil, saying he steals money from her daughter.

She also fuelled the recent rumour that Grohl left Nirvana in 1993 - or rather, says he was kicked out rather than quit as previously reported.

The tantrum was sparked by an audience member holding up a picture of her late husband Kurt Cobain, which led to her walking off the stage as shown in the footage below (via Antiquiet).

Hole's guitarist came back out and told the audience to chant "Foo Fighters are gay" to help ease Love back on stage, which she did once the audience began to cheer her back on.

Love then made a not-so-subtle dig at Dave Grohl, telling the audience: "I don't care what you listen to at home, but if a guy takes off money off my kid's table, f--k him."

The comments suggests that Love believes Grohl is not entitled to his share of Nirvana royalties. "If you don't write a song, you don't get publishing, you don't steal money from the child, the mom, the sister," she later ranted.

Dave Grohl was not the only subject of gossip for the Hole singer. She also insisted that former lover Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins wrote endless songs about their relationship, and claims almost every song on "Siamese Dream" and "Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness" is about her.

Apparently, a line from one of their greatest songs "Disarm" ("The killer in me is the killer in you") is from a letter she wrote to Corgan.

You can see Love's hissy fit in the clip below, but be warned that some of the language is NSFW.

Does Love have any right to make these claims, or is she having trouble seeing clearly after years of rock n' roll excess? Share your reaction to the outlandish statements in the comments.

    So your getting Kurt's money for songs HE wrote, and people who don't write the songs "don't get publishing" right? Yeah cause among the musicians who played the music and worked on the collaboration process you deserve the money.
    wow...she's complaining about grohl getting the money...pretty sure she didnt write the songs either.

    "Foo Fighters are gay" I wonder how long it took him to construct that mature, scathing assault on Dave Grohl?
    UG's least favorite person attacks UG's god. Sure will be interesting to see where the comments will go.

    This. +1
    Can we just agree we won't speak of her again until she dies and then we post it as news? Just sayin...
    *checks the facts* Actually Courtney, Dave helped write 'Smells like Teen Spirit' and 'Scentless Apprentice'. You, on the other hand, haven't co-written any Nirvana songs at all. Boning the singer doesn't really trump doing any actual work on the songwriting in any court of law.
    Why would Gohrl need to steal anyone's money? He's ****ing minted as it is. And he's earned damn near every penny of it, unlike little miss i-claim-rights-to-the-money-my-husband-and-his-band-earned here. What a lowlife
    If there's anybody that needs to go OD in a hotel room somewhere, it's this chick.
    Courtney killed Kurt... for money and... had anybody even HEARD of Hole until he died?
    Wow, instead of a Courtney Love and Foo Fighters story every week, they put them in one! Lol. On a more serious note, Love shouldn't be talking about getting royalties for music Grohl didn't allegedly write since Billy Corgan and Kurt Cobain ghost-wrote half of Hole's shit. :v
    So you've really thought this one through, eh, Courtney? Dave Grohl is stealing money from you by making money off of his band for you know, BEING GODDAMN DRUMMER 0N THE RECORDINGS, but you deserve it cause you boned the singer. Oh, also his new band is gay. Not a fan of Nirvana, but I'll give credit where credit is due, and it's definitely not Courtney Love.
    i think the term "Yoko", referring to a girl who ruins everything for a band, should be changed to "Courtney, seeing as she's ruing two bands i love by being greed and crazy.
    Does it change anything that the kid whose money is being stolen by that awful Grohl doesn't want anything to do with her horrible mother?
    "I have to live with his ghost, his kid ..." Really, did she just use her child in a way implying it's a burden?
    "If you dont write a song, you dont get publishing, you dont steal money from the child , the mom, the sister," she later ranted.
    But it's okay to use the money Kurt posthumously makes for your daughter to fuel your drug addiction, right Courtney?
    Says the bitch that let Cobain and Corgan write all of her songs. She also says that Dave Grohl has songs about her. As if he gives a sh*t about her.

    Well, actually, the song "Let It Die" from "Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace" is about Grohl's hate towards Love for ruining Nirvana. And let's face it: Courtney Love is pretty much Yoko Ono.

    Wow! Chanting The Foo Fighters are gay, that is probably the most juvenile thing I have ever seen. It is even worse those people actually did that. I don't know what is more pathetic, Courtney Love or her fans.

    If I was the guitarist for Hole, when Courtney walked off, I would have started playing Monkey Wrench...
    I always thought Disarm was about abortion. If that means it's also about Courtney Love, does that mean Billy Corgan wished she was aborted?

As much as I don't much care for the foo fighters, I do respect Grohl, and this woman is just stupid, ignorant...and downright ignorant...Why are we giving her news coverage?
    ...because everyone loves a trainwreck?
    Wait. How does somebody holding up a picture of Kurt become a rant against Dave Grohl? I'm not seeing the link here. What, every time she sees a picture of Kurt it makes her start swearing about the Foo Fighters?
    "If you dont write a song, you dont get publishing" Do you not see the hypocrisy here, Love?
    I sincerely doubt Dave is stealing anyone's money, and even less likelier that he's stealing a child's food off the table. Talking about food, what is Courtney doing outside of the kitchen?
    Nirvana were a good Melvins ripoff at best before Grohl... His drumming gave Cobain's songs room to breathe... Nirvana would not have been NIRVANA without Dave Grohl..
    "If you dont write a song, you dont get publishing, you dont steal money from the child, the mom, the sister"
    Which fvcking Nirvana song did you write, Courtney?

    Judging from the number of "negative" votes on my previous comment, I guess the potent sarcasm didn't permeate through this message as much as I originally intended. So to put it in simpler terms: I find it hard to care about what Courtney Love thinks.
    Meanwhile Dave Grohl is headlining stadiums around the world. The last thing he needs to do is "steal" money from Courtney Love. She really is pathetic.
