The lengthy feud between Courtney Love and Dave Grohl might have finally ended at Nirvana's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last Friday (April 11).

After a brief speech, Courtney surprised the crowd by hugging bassist Krist Novoselic and Grohl, calling them family.

"I have a big speech, but I'm not gonna say it," Love said. "We all start bands when we're kids and this is my family I'm looking at right now. I just wish Kurt could have been here."

After the ceremony ended, the singer tweeted, "If I skip the party it's just coz I'm tired - love you guys in my crazy way."

Courtney also posted a photo of herself hugging Dave, noting, "The most magical part of the evening. Thank you Dave, love you. I know this made him smile up there."

As reported, surviving Nirvana members took the stage for a four-song set featuring a female all-star set of vocalist - Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Lorde.

The evening's entire Nirvana team, excluding Lorde, continued the party at a local Brooklyn club St. Vitus, performing a full set. As the New York Post reports, the super-secret show was open only for 250 close friends of the band.

    it's ****ing typical courtney love can do no right in the eye's of UG bunch of ****ing vultures
    iommi600
    Yeah, really. Courtney is an emotional trainwreck, but that doesn't mean she can't be nice every now and then. But as we all know, when our fellow UGers start seeing someone as a villain, there's no way back. (No pun intended) [/leave Courtney alone!!!!111!!! moment

    I was lucky enough to be at the event and I have to say that Courtney pretty much came off as she's perceived: attention-seeking and possibly drunk or high. Courtney went up to the mic after Dave, Krist, and Kurt's mom spoke, said two sentences, and then went around hugging everyone. It looked like it was forced and because she was pretty much had no other choice than to take the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" attitude. You can't drop 20 years of bitterness overnight, but you CAN be amicable for the sake of keeping appearances. If either one of them denied the other in that moment, it would've been very awkward and I'm sure they both knew that.

    Seriously. Just look at Dave in that pic. Goin one-armed with the hug, and the look on his face says, "just get this over with".

    lol, way to attribute something to UG that's basically been going on since Kurt died, that's real neat.
    AlexGreat123
    The woman's nearly 50. Its the 20th anniversary of her husband's death and she's probably reevaluating stuff and realises this is pointless. Hopefully she moves on and makes some new good tunes with Hole

    Finally this is over. I've regained some respect for Courtney because of this. Hopefully we won't see any hate-filled interviews anymore.
    Maiden95
    Maybe she has seen some of the UG article comments. Oh btw, Dave is pretty much giving Courtney a Christian side-hug.

    Aaaaand this site is officially out of news forever.

    3 notes of the pre-production demo track have been decided on by Maynard to be taken into consideration for 3 albums time.

    I am incredibly suspicious of her unexpectedly kind and well-grounded gesture.
    N7Crazy
    Likewise here, but I'll give her the benifit of the doubt and hope that she's actually pulled herself together now.
    JJ1990
    I truly hope this is sincere and not another cry for attention.
    Cyanide81
    Come on guys, I know she's bat shit crazy majority of the time but credit where credit is due. She did a good thing here.
    paulyg
    I think Dave is just doing the civil thing, because his life is pretty good, Courtney's life seems to be pretty ****ed up anyway! So if all the lawsuits and shit is settled then why bother having a feud. He doesn't need to be friends with Courtney, just be civil.
    Mountain_Goat
    Dave is actually saying in his mind "I hope she isnt piching anything out of my back pocket"
    zakaye
    She's just lulling them into a false sense of security.
    toasty333
    And then she'll kill them both, and make it look like suicide.
    Everlong729
    I had this odd feeling that I thought you were going to say something along the lines of "kill them both and make them into soup." I just woke up, idk.
    MeepMan
    It was never much of a feud. It was just Courtney being a bitch to Dave.
    benjy118
    I think her crazy just went full circle, she'll be back to her old ways in a couple of years. And thus the cycle continues.
    N7Crazy
    -in the voice of David Attenburrough- "We see here another excellent specimen of the Courtneaus Lovus, a slightly humanoid creature whose main activity is shreiking ghastly aggresive sounds out into the urban jungle. It keeps itself nourished through processed green paper, most commenly derived from its former mate, and the pulverised paste of the coca plant which grows in South America. Through a 20 year cycle, it will produce the said shrieks and bellowing to conjure the attention of others, until the cycle ends - Then begins a 5-10 year cycle in which it changes behaviour completely, from being a pest of the forest to becoming a benifitial factor, turning its shrieking to music, and laying down aggresive behaviour for a more, if still manic, but more accepting and relaxed behaviour. The time upon when this behaviour turns around again depends on when the animals of the forest have universally accepted the Lovus as a normal part of the forest and it fades into obscurity, or if it runs out of processed green paper, in which it will moult out of its respectable skin and rise again in an seemingly even worse state than it was before."
    Efilnikufesin89
    she is obviously doing it for the cameras. i hate how people are looking into this so much
    phds
    And who are you to say she's only doing it for the cameras?
    spiff-corgi
    If there's one person who doesn't give a shit about what people, particularly those in the media, think about her it's Courtney Love. Like **** is she doing it for the cameras.
    Jacksabbath_44
    she clearly did this for her (and kurt's) daughter,courtney realized how much time has passed and how selfish all were, is not that dave was "right" is just that they were too hard on each other, i think
    iommi600
    Hopefully, Courtney will not start it all again next week. I wish them the best. What a picture, btw...
    Mr. Baloonhands
    I've always thought it was weird to even call this a feud seeing as how Courtney was always the one talking shit and picking fights with Dave. Dave never did or said anything to strike back at Courtney as far as I know, he did what anyone should do In that situation, just ignored her comments and never thought anything of them.
    mattjamesrenn
    True it's like if there was a deranged person that screamed something at you as you walked to work every day and that person happened to go to your school back in the day but you just ignored them, that's not really a feud is it
    Everlong729
    He has said that stacked actors, I'll stick around, and let it die are directed towards Courtney.
    TheForthcoming1
    Finally.... And with the Bloodmoons coming up, maybe it is the end of the world, cats and dogs living together, like they talked about in the movie Ghostbusters lol?
    PsiGuy60
    I hope to God this is all real. I was getting quite tired of reading about how Courtney hates Dave. Mind you, I would probably be just as annoyed if it suddenly switched to news about Courtney and Dave doing the horizontal tango.
    beastpenis
    I wonder if Dave wipes back to front or front to back. Hopefully UG will do an in depth exposè to answer this.
    Jimjambanx
    Yeah it's probably gonna go back to the same ol' wacky ways in a week, but let's just live in the moment for a second here.
    solexhn
    This will last as long as her cocaine dealer gets back on business
    christianonbass
    Right on. I try not to figure out someone's "agenda" for doing a good thing. I'll just take this as a good thing
    RichieJovie
    You are all aware that she is Autistic? So whilst her behaviour is outlandish, there is an underlying reason.
    bustapr
    never really understood why celebrities feel the need to give real apologies on stage in front of millions of people. not bashing her but just wondering why they do it. Makes it all seem like an act.
    FaTLoL
    I wish she gonna die
    benjixoath
    you're a disgusting person and how the mods can let these comments happen is disgusting does no one have any ****ing morals anymore?
    spiff-corgi
    Don't fall for the troll.
    broken ipod
    This is an especially annoying troll as it is lacks any sort of quality humor. I would have hoped this community would have avoided paying attention to it.
    Lethalhatchet
    Anyone want to tell me how Kurt Cobain shot up 3 times a LETHAL dose of heroin before shooting himself? Dont say tolerance level because its NOT possible for any human, EVEN a hardcore addict to do that much heroin/morphine without being immediately incapacitated let alone shoot themselves with a SHOTGUN.HIS SUICIDE WAS STAGED HE WAS MURDERED heres an interesting fact Kurt talked about hiring a hitman multiple times in interviews and he left a threating message on someones phone once about getting a hitman on that person so whos to say him and courtney didnt have a hitman and Courtney used that hitman on Kurt instead if you ask me that makes since for a psychopath wives kill there husbands everyday in this country and visa versa or hire someone too, Kurt Cobain was a person he was no exception to that rule and Courtney Love IS a psychopath. I have made my point www.cobaincase.com watch Soaked In Bleach this summer the trailer is on youtube right now check it out.
