Coming away from Little Earthquakes
, I really adored the Armand Van Helden version as opposed to the one from the Boys For Pele
album, which I find pretty hard to listen to (track can be found HERE
for comparison). According to myth and legend, the song is about a spat between Amos, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails
and Kurt Cobain's widow and Hole
front woman, Courtney Love. If the Love Triangle
is anything to go by (it allegedly also stars Marilyn Manson/Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins
drummer David Grohl and on and on), it got really messy. Courtney Love seemingly caused a LOT of trouble, but obviously there are several sides of the story - from what has been written, it appears that the artists had been sniping backwards and forwards for a while. However, I do not believed that Courtney Love single-handedly 'destroyed 90s rock music', as claimed by Travis Christensen. Some died (notably Cobain), others just grew up.
But the beat goes on...
