Courtney Love goes ballistic on a rude audience member in Australia

If you read through some of Courtney Love’s most recent headlines, you might think that she’s turned over a new leaf. Although she’s been known for having a hot temper, in the last few months alone she’s made amends with Dave Grohl, effectively ending one of rock ‘n’ roll’s longest-running feuds, and even agreed to play the role of a preschool teacher on an upcoming season of Sons of Anarchy. It seems she’s gotten her anger under control, right?

Nah.

As Gigwise points out, during a recent show in Australia, Love went ballistic after one of the audience members hurled a beer can onto the stage. “In 20 years, no one’s thrown a beer-can at me except for you, fucker,” she furiously yelled. “Your weenie must be this fucking big.”

She even went so far as to challenge the little weenie man to a fight, saying, “You wanna go back? You wanna fucking fuck me up? Do not do that again.” And she made it clear that if anyone dare throw an object her way, she would “fucking kill you.” Oh, Courtney.

However, it’s important to emphasize that Love’s rage was only directed toward that one disrespectful attendee. With a smirk, she addressed the rest of the crowd tenderly: “The rest of you are sweet as fuck.” (Some note she’s actually saying “The rest of you are excused, it’s fine”, but it’s a tad hard to tell; you be the judge.)

Watch footage of the exchange below:

he surviving members of Nirvana played together not once, but twice on Thursday night/Friday morning. Following their all-star performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear hightailed it to the 230-capacity Brooklyn club Saint Vitus for a surprise, invite-only show.

According to Noisey, the band took the stage around 2:30am and proceed to play a 16-song set comprised entirely of Nirvana material. Once again, they were accompanied by a cavalcade of guest singers, including St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, Joan Jett, Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis, and Deer Tick’s  John McCauley. Maybe it was past Lorde’s bedtime?

For her part, Clark sang lead on “Lithium”, “About A Girl”, and “Heart Shaped Box”, while J Mascis took the stage for “Drain You”, “Penny Royal Tea”, and “School”. Gordon helped closed out the performance, fronting the band for “Aneurysm”, “Negative Creep”, and “Moist Vagina”. You can see the full setlist, along with a few fan-shot video clips, below.

The Birds of Satan Album

 

The Birds of Satan, the side-project of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, will let loose its self-titled debut album on April 15th through Shanabelle Records. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in its entirety below.

Comprised of Hawkins, Mick Murphy and Wiley Hodgen, of Hawkins’ Chevy Metal cover band, The Birds of Satan marks the trio’s first official release since launching earlier this year. The album was recorded over the course of one week at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in California and boasts appearances by Grohl, fellow Foo Pat Smear, Butch Vig, and Yes frontman Jon Davison.

[The Birds of Satan] is just all real old school rock with all sorts of little flares and touches,” Hawkins recently told Billboard. “It’s like a love letter to the music I love, a nod to everything, a homage sometimes. You’ll hear the (Rolling) Stones song that we learned last week and the Move song, or you’ll hear the Van Halen song or the James Gang song or whatever, but in our own songs.”
