Courtney Love to sue YouTube user who posted ‘fake’ Nirvana song

'Flaccid Bone' appeared online earlier this year, supposedly from Love's own archive

Courtney Love is apparently taking legal action against the anonymous YouTube user who posted a ‘fake’ Nirvana song.

A song called ‘Flaccid Bone’ recently appeared online and it was claimed the track was hacked from Love’s own archive. The song was posted alongside the caption: “She [Love] said this came from the early 90’s recording sessions. Supposedly Kurt hated it, and canned it. I mean no disrespect to Kurt, but this is coming out eventually. He hated several of his songs anyway!”

However, TMZ reports that Love – who part owns the rights to Nirvana’s music – with the “help of a real Nirvana member”, confirmed the song was fake. Consequence of Sound adds that Love is taking take legal action against the user who posted the song. Listen to the track below:

Last month Courtney Love spoke about burying the hatchet with former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. Talking with David Letterman on The Late Show she explained that the pair are ‘cool’.

“We’re friends again – we text, and we’re cool,” she commented. “I think you just get to an age where, ‘Why are we suing each other? Really?’ It just got stupid. Honestly, me and Dave Grohl, we had some gnarly times over 20 years. And if we can make up, anyone can make up. We’re really cool now.” Watch the interview below.

She also discussed Montage of Heck, the new documentary about her late husband, Kurt Cobain. She said of the film: “It’s anguish. It’s very moving. I’ve seen it now three times, and I’m probably not going to see it again. It’s too much. People were in tears… The director, Brett Morgen, did a fantastic job on it. I trusted him completely… and gave him the keys to my storage and just said, ‘Tell the truth.'”

Love attended the premiere of Cobain: Montage Of Heck at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in January. Love and Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was also in attendance. The 22-year-old served as an executive producer on the project, which is the first fully authorised film about the late Nirvana frontman and features previously unreleased music and home movies. The film will be released in UK cinemas this April.
