Dave Grohl has finally spoken about his heartbreak over Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's rocky relationship with Courtney Love.

In an interview with The Guardian, the Foo Fighters singer addressed rumours that the band's new track 'Let It Die' is about the infamous couple.

The lyrics depicting "a simple man and his blushing bride/intravenous, intertwined" have already courted controversy, with many listeners assuming the lines refer to Cobain and Love.

Addressing the claims, Grohl enigmatically explained that the song was "written about feeling helpless to someone else’s demise".

Speaking directly about Cobain and Love, he said: "I've seen people lose it all to drugs and heartbreak and death. It's happened more than once in my life, but the one that's most noted is Kurt."

Grohl added: "There are a lot of people that I've been angry with in my life, but the one that's most noted is Courtney. So it's pretty obvious to me that those correlations are gonna pop up every now and again."

The new Foo Fighters album, 'Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace', is set for release on September 25.
