Courtney Love took to Facebook to comment on last night's (December 12) reunion of the three surviving members of Nirvana, who performed at 12-12-12: Concert For Sandy Relief with Sir Paul McCartney in New York.

It follows a report on TMZ in which Love said she was "not amused" by McCartney's involvement, but added, "Look, if John [Lennon] were alive it would be cool."

Love's cryptic Facebook comments, which you can read below, were posted on the Facebook page for Mark Yarm’s book, Everybody Loves This Town: An Oral History of Grunge. Love said she intends to remove the comments ("Y'all got good copy now I'll leave it up a few then I'll delete"), but her posts remain in place as of 5pm today (December 13). She has since returned to clarify her position and respond to some of those people who had commented in turn.

Love expanded on her Lennon statement, writing, "Yes we did get into Paul and John fights – I'm a Paul person ('Helter Skelter')". She also clarified her stance on the 'reunion'. "If they don't do songs they didn't write (Nirvana songs they don't own) I don't care."

Love also answered a commenter who said that the song "kicked ass" by saying, "Scott, really? I will repeat, with Krist's bass playing? Let's be clear he's not exactly known for its brilliance."
