Dead Kurt Cobain Kisses Courtney Love In Bizarre New Melvins Poster


The Melvins performed at Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, Colorado on August 11th, and the poster for the show recreated the iconic photo of Courtney Love kissing Kurt Cobain, but this time, Cobain is a skeleton. You can view a photo of the poster below from bmethe.

Melvins frontman Buzz Osbourne ripped the Kurt Cobain film Montage of Heck in 2015 on Talkhouse, calling it ‘90% bullshit.’ He also discussed Courtney Love’s presence in the movie.

“And then there’s Courtney.

A lot of what she says in this documentary doesn’t exactly jibe with things Kurt told me himself, but I suppose that’s not surprising when you consider history becomes elastic every time Courtney Love opens her mouth.

For instance, she’d have us believe that Kurt tried to off himself when she’d only thought about cheating on him?

Wow. That’s a whole lot different from the stories he told me in regards to Courtney’s behavior — and this was well before he ended up dead. And that’s just one example.

When Courtney speaks, the truth is certainly there, but God only knows where it begins and ends. In the 20 years since Kurt’s death, the undisputed facts of some of her stories seem to change almost hourly. I remain unconvinced in regards to her testimony, and I don’t think I’m alone.”

He also said at the time, “I find it amusing that the filmmakers never bothered to fact-check simple stuff like this, and just took Kurt and Courtney at their word. That’s a bit risky when you’re supposed to be making a behind-the-scenes documentary — but not surprising considering that not a lot of what’s out there about Kurt is the truth anyway. But no one seems to care. Unfortunately, it matters very little what the facts are; what matters is what people believe. And when it comes to Cobain, most of what they believe is fabricated nonsense. Montage Of Heck does nothing to counter that. With that in mind, it’s really hard to take any of this film seriously…

…I suppose this movie will be interesting for Nirvana completists, because it certainly reinforces their already twisted view of the man. I found it to be mostly misguided fiction.”
