KURT & COURTNEY’S UNRELEASED DUET

Kurt and Courtney, a romance resurrected from video archives.

Stinking of You was an unreleased duet the couple made together. I had no knowledge of its existence until it showed up in Hit So Hard, a rockumentary about Hole’s drummer.

The footage and song is pure grunge, off-beat and mussed up. I wish Kurt had dominated with his vocals, but Courtney took the lead with singing.

More than anything, I walk away from this song sad. Kurt Cobain had a tragic life, and his relationship with Courtney was less than wholesome. Looking at the clips of their marriage, I’m filled with remorse for what could have been and questions about what was.

Regardless of my emotional reaction, this footage is a piece of musical history. For that it should be appreciated.
