Former Hole singer and actress Courtney Love recently appeared on the WTF podcast with Marc Maron. During a wide-ranging and lengthy interview, Love revealed she had written a song for her late husband, legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, called “Justice for Kurt.” 

The 58-year-old Love would go on to say, however, that she won’t be including the song on her upcoming album for fears that it would “ruin” the record. 

“We wrote a secret song that we can’t put on ’cause it’s only two minutes and 24 seconds, but it’s a rock song,” Love told Maron when he asked if she was still writing music in the rock vein.

“It’s called ‘Justice for Kurt,'” she said. Love then seemingly criticized would-be listeners of the song. “It’s great, but we’re like, ‘Okay, they’re too stupid. It would swallow the entire narrative. Rock does not stream.'”

Love went on to say that Cobain has “ruined every(thing)” for her. “It’s not worth it — it’s 2:24; it’s an earworm and a half,” she explained. “Okay, if I’m going to write a f*cking song called ‘Justice for Kurt,’ it’s going to be a f*cking earworm. But I am not putting it on that record to ruin my record. Right? Like, I do not need Kurt ruining more of my sh*t, okay? Thank you. Love you, but no.”

Maron asked Love what else Cobain ruined for her. She replied: “He ruined every[thing]! … He’s a ruiner, the poor f*cking guy.” Cobain passed away from an apparent suicide at the age of 27 in 1994.
