Kurt Cobain 'wrote song for 'The Ren & Stimpy Show''

Voice actor says Nirvana man came to the office

Kurt Cobain 'wrote song for 'The Ren & Stimpy Show''
Kurt Cobain once tried to get one of his songs featured in cult '90s cartoon The Ren & Stimpy Show - according to one of the voice actors who starred in it.

Billy West, who provided the voice of the feline simpleton character Stimpy, has claimed that the Nirvana frontman showed up at the Los Angeles offices of Spümcø, the animation company behind the show.

"One day, this scraggly kid came in and said he wanted to write a song for Ren & Stimpy," he said on podcast Nerdist, "and it was Kurt Cobain."

West's account hasn't been verified by anyone who knew the late singer/guitarist, but whether it was indeed him or not who showed up, the "scraggly kid"'s song was rejected by the show's chiefs.

"They [TV bosses] said, 'Yeah, that's great,'" West explained, "and they threw it in the wastebasket".
