Courtney Love Makes Nirvana 2023 Announcement


The late legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love recently took to her Instagram account and posted a statement from her and daughter Frances Bean Cobain regarding The Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The caption read:

“Re @recordingacademy #nirvana lifetime achievement award…

The most fun I’ve ever had with ad copy! Weeee! Words are FUN! And here’s me in 1992 telling Kurt; “That font’s so butch“ & “C’mon who would want to look like a bumble bee 🐝?”

We took out an ad smack in the middle of the Grammy program. So everyone would have to notice!🦕🦖

I guess they did? 👀!
Thanks #CRUSH ❤️🙌🥂🍒🍒🏰CLC”

Nirvana had received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy at their Special Merit Awards, which were held at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear were on-hand to accept the honor.

“They said that Kurt was witty, that maybe he was a smart-ass, and he said ‘Teenage angst has paid off well,’ which it has,” Novoselic said in an excerpt from his speech. “I do fan mail, old-fashioned fan mail, and I get letters from around the world from Nirvana fans … a lot of young people, there’s a new generation of Nirvana fans and I’m just very grateful for that.”

While they were an active band, Nirvana received six Grammy Award nominations but won only one, after Kurt Cobain’s death when MTV Unplugged in New York won for Best Alternative Music Performance.

Also honored at the Special Merit Awards were the Supremes, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson (only Nancy attended the ceremony), Nile Rodgers, Slick Rick, Bobby McFerrin, Ma Rainy, Auto-Tune creator Dr. Andy Hildebrand, and more. Watch some video from the event below.
