Foo Fighters - "I'll Stick Around"
Disses: Courtney Love
In the wake of Kurt Cobain's suicide, widow Courtney Love and former bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novaselic engaged in a contentious, often highly personal battle for royalties and song rights--a feud that, particularly between Love and Grohl, has persisted with serious vigor well beyond its initial stages in the dark days after Nirvana's untimely dissolution.
Though Love has fired a number of shots at Grohl in the media, the former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters lead singer used the Foo's debut album to rip Courtney with scathing salvo "I'll Stick Around."
With its shouted chorus, "I don't owe you anything," Grohl made two things abundantly clear: one, he wanted nothing to do with Love, and two, he didn't feel any stake in Nirvana should be hers. Having told Cobain about Love, the Foo Fighters singer both lamented his introduction and chastised Love, singing "I should have known, you were better off alone" and questioning the widow's entire image: "I'm the only one who sees your rehearsed insanity."
