Nirvana Bassist’s Reaction To Kurt Cobain Conspiracy ‘Soaked In Bleach’ Will Surprise You


Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic finally shared his thoughts on the Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy docudrama Soaked in Bleach, which features Tom Grant. Novoselic tweeted regarding the film: “I fucking hate that piece of shit!”


Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic discussed Kurt Cobain and Nirvana in a new Rolling Stone interview.

“We were inspired by the Beatles, we just took things from different bands. Sex Pistols, Beatles, Bay City Rollers (laughs), we would joke that we were a boy band.”

“I wish Kurt was still around,” he says. “A whole new generation of listeners are discovering Nirvana and is connecting with Nirvana. It’s always good that we remember Kurt. He lives on.”

“You know Kurt was a cynical bastard,” Novoselic continues. “He could be a vicious critic. You know, I love him, but boy, I don’t know what he’d think of a lot of music today. He wouldn’t hold his punches. Kurt just had so much passion, the way he’d sing and feel about the music. We all had this intensity.”

“We used to practice all the time, just putting songs together, and feeling good about the songs. It just seemed like anything was possible, there was a lot of innocence too. It was like coming of age, like reaching puberty, you have all of this awareness. It was just exciting, just getting to play bass, with Dave on drums, and Kurt singing and playing guitar, it was very exciting.”

    Krist, Dave Courtney, all 3 stood to profit from Curt’s death. FOLLOW THE MONEY, FOLLOW THE RIGHTS TO MUSIC!

    i got an response to a post of mine from here but i can’t find the person who sent it or which comment of mine he responded to but the handle was TOAD Wallop. i looks like you were talking about courtney and krist and dave not getting along which doesn’t have much to do really with what anyone was saying. krist and dave knew all along that kurt was murdered by courtney day one. they were too close in proximity to him to not know that he was not suicidal and that he wanted a divorce and that rome was not a suicide attempt. they knew he was murdered DAY ONE. this in no way conflicts with whether or not they were getting along with courtney. they never disclosed to the public that they knew he was killed and krist very theatrically spent over 20 years supporting the suicide mythology and dave for the most part had the good grace to at least keep his mouth shut for the most part. there is no conflict with this statement of fact, and whether courtney was on good terms with dave and krist. anyone who has watched soaked in bleach knows she had him killed and that it was murder. the way krists so vigorously supports the suicide mythology, you have to wonder if he was in on it the conspriacy to murder or if he just rolled with it because courtney found a way to make it worth his while to support him in the negotiation about the band break up. krist and dave were very resentful towards kurt because he wanted to leave nirvana. but he WAS nirvana and that made the other two very hateful. so they weren’t his bussom buddies and i actually saw them laugh once together many years later when they talked about kurt being dead it is right on youtube i forget which video. they were hateful about him leaving the band. they felt so hateful they were glad when he died. if you watch the videos enough you can see it in them. all this freakish crap about how much they loved each other is so warped. the beatles too were very acrimonious when they split up. they really hated each other for a while. blah blah blah. rest in peace kurt cobain, i know that bitch killed you and krist vigorously supported her, she must’ve made it worth his while he was always so gungho about lying about his murder. not much of a friend . petty . kurt was free to leave the band, he didn’t own you a living.

    Awww, poor little Krist Novoscelic’s ego can’t deal with the fact that Kurt Cobain was moving on to different musicians -like what his original “suicide” note said (before the extra suicidal handwriting was added on to it!!!!) so he’d prefer we all believe the suicide theory instead.

    HEY KRIST, what about the person who was using Kurt’s credit card while his body laid dead for 3 or 4 or 5 days -the last attempt on his credit occurring only minutes before his body was finally discovered!!! And what kind of “friend” ignores such hardcore evidence of foul play?

    Sometime I literally begin to question my own sanity and wonder how its possible that anyone could really sit down and watch something like Soaked in Bleach and by the end of it with everything that was presented with all the experts opinions (Cyril Whect for God sakes! He is literally the most accomplished forensic pathologist on the planet!) with recorded conversations where Courtney Love is proven to have exhibited the most bizarre and outright sketchy behavior, I mean they even had the guy who was chief of police in Seattle at the time in there where he was admitting things weren’t done the way they should’ve been! He states that the officer who’s case it was had been caught planting evidence for another case not long after Cobain’s death and finally he states that he would reopen the case without a doubt if he were still the police chief…. Then you have the recorded conversations between Grant and Kurt and Courtney’s lawyer where she makes it absolutely clear that she doesnt believe Kurt killed himself and she knows Courtney had something to do with it. Then with that “suicide note” which really seemed more like something she came across in his note book. If you remove the last two lines from that note and gave it to anyone to read through I honestly don’t think you’d find a single person who believed the not was written by someone who was about to take their own life. I spent the last 24 years believing Kurt Cobain took his own life and after watching Soaked in Bleach I was absolutely astonished at how anybody with eyes and ears could possibly walk away from it without seeing what really took place. If Tom Grant was a prosecutor and brought charges against Love for the death of her husband, she would either get the death penalty or spend the rest of her life in prison with the amount of evidence hes compiled against her. I just don’t see how any jury that could be assembled could honestly review all of that evidence and allow her to walk away as a free woman. It’s clear as day what took place and it boggles my mind that people could honestly look at all of what was presented and then speak about the film as if it was the most far fetched conspiracy anyone’s ever heard. Like Tom Grant spent 2 full hours trying to convince viewers that he was really Aberham Lincoln and how he also invented sleep…. If you truly aren’t convinced that at the very least the investigation needs to be reopened then I must really be insane.

      excellent post. it seems impossible to me that you could watch this movie and not understand that he was murdered for his money and the police conspired in the murder with courtney. the only way that could happen is that you were not paying attention to the movie and doing other things or distracted or maybe high or something.

    Oh! how dare you say this. Now I know this is straight bullshit.

      everyone who has watched ‘soaked in bleach ‘ knows courtney killed him for his money. and krist novoselic knew day one he was murdered yet he supported suicide mythology for over 20 years until soaked in bleach came out. and now he is strangely silent about the film and his support of the murderers for so many years. you are daft to imagine he was any sort of real friend to kurt. kurt wanted to dissolve nirvana before he died and his bandmates hated him for it so much when they learned of his murder they said nothing to defend his life or give him justice.
