Published Oct 03, 2007The ongoing feud between Dave Grohl and Courtney Love has gotten even uglier this week. Love has launched an attack on the Foo Fighters front-man, after the lyrics in a song taken from Grohl's latest album Echoes Silence Patience and Grace, touched the ex-Hole front-woman's nerve.
The song "Let It Die" has a verse that reads: "A simple man and his blushing bride / Intravenous, intertwined... You're so considerate / Did you ever think of me?" In a recent interview, Grohl explained his feelings for Mrs. Cobain: "There are a lot of people that I have been angry with in my life, but the one that's most noted in Courtney. So it's pretty obvious to me that those correlations are going to pop up every now and again. I still remain a little secretive about it all."
Love has now responded on her MySpace blog, writing: "As for that drummer, well he's hit on me so many times. He's just a very very conflicted guy about me, which is why he continually writes songs about me to hear he 'hates' me more than 'anyone else'." Kurt loathed HIM more than anyone else (except a journalist). In his will he made a codicil that Grohl was no longer a member of Nirvana. I just ignored the guy and will continue to. Dave knows this, and he takes it out on me! Hey, it wasn't MY band and it wasn't MY idea! It's funny he 'hates' me since I don't think about him. He's just sub-mediocre kind of [guy] who does this 'nice guy' nonsense. There isn't a word he could he say that would ruffle my feathers, honestly."
No date has been set for an official street fight.
