Grunge, grief, the Grateful Dead and a “teenage whore.” Part 2 of the Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love story picks up with Courtney’s ascent and the couple’s heroin hazed pregnancy. An escape from rehab and a punk as f*ck group hug for Gen X.
Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love 1: No Direction Home
Kurt Cobain is a celebrated and defiant icon of Generation X. His wife, Courtney Love was once the most hated woman in America. Courtney like Kurt, was unapologetic, fierce, determined, ambitious, authentic and a total hypocrite. They were both totally in love and for a minute shined brighter than most. They challenged gender norms and the music industry patriarchy and reluctantly played the roles of their generation’s John and Yoko by way of Sid and Nancy all while making great music, but only one of them would make it out of the nineties alive.
