Hole achieved considerable commercial and critical success throughout the 1990s, initially releasing singles through independent labels and debuting with their caustic noise rock-influenced Pretty on the Inside (1991), and later gaining critical acclaim for their 1994 album Live Through This. The band began to incorporate elements of power pop into their sound in the late 1990s, specifically on their third album, Celebrity Skin (1998), which went on to be their most commercially successful release, garnering them widespread critical attention and several Grammy nominations.
The group officially disbanded in 2002 and its members began solo careers and other projects. In 2009, Love announced she was reforming Hole as the sole returning member. Erlandson, however, stated that no reunion could take place contractually without mutual involvement. On January 1, 2010, a website promoting Hole's latest release, Nobody's Daughter, was launched, with links to various social media pages. Despite the dispute between Erlandson and Love, Nobody's Daughter was released in April 2010, and the reformed band toured extensively in Europe and North America. In November 2012, however, Love stated on her Twitter account that she was working now under her own name as a solo artist, and that "Hole is dead".
