Courtney & Nirvana: Smells Like a Sellout

03/31/2006 12:56 PM, E! Online


Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit"--coming soon to a soap ad near you?

So far Courtney Love is ruling that out, but chances are we'll be hearing more of the seminal grunge band's music in unexpected places now that Kurt Cobain's cash-strapped widow has agreed to sell off a 25 percent stake in the Nirvana song catalog in a deal valued at $50 million, per Rolling Stone.

On the other end of the deal is Larry Mestel, the former COO of Virgin Records and current head of Primary Wave Music Publishing.

To preemptively squelch backlash from fans worried about the over-commercialization of a decidedly anticorporate band, Love sought to assure the Nirvana faithful that the music won't simply be licensed to the highest bidder.

"We're going to remain very tasteful, and we're going to [retain] the spirit of Nirvana and take Nirvana places it's never been before," Love told the magazine.

Well, I don't watch tv too much, so I won't have to get annoyed watching some goofy commercial selling their products via Nirvana, but it still will have its effect in a not so good way. I thought that the other Nirvana band members were fighting her in court? So she got all rights to the songs he wrote? That kinda sucks

They were fighting her in court, & I think they won the suite. I think that's why "With The Lights Out" was released. If she has any rights to his music, that fucking sucks. She's just gonna sell them to get more heroin.

I wouldn't know, but I'm sure Kurt is fiending for some. (ha ha)

See, I'm not so uptight all the time.

Following her husband's 1994 suicide, Love became the primary benefactor of Cobain's estate, which included ownership rights of more than 98 percent of Nirvana's song catalog.

i wonder if kurt cobain owned 98% at the time when he was alive, or courtney got 98% of ownership rights after his death. Both makes me think. Maybe even that kurt was a real capitalist its a well known fact that courtney is crazy sellout anyway
