Courtney Michelle Love /kɔrtn mɪʃɛl ləv/ (born Courtney Michelle Harrison; July 9, 1964)[8][9][10] is an American singer-songwritermusicianactress, and artist who rose to prominence within the punk and alternative rock scenes of the 1990s as frontwoman of the band Hole, which she formed in 1989. Her uninhibited stage presence and confrontational lyrics combined with rampant publicity surrounding her 1992 marriage to Kurt Cobain made her a remarkably divisive figure in alternative music.[11][12][13]

The daughter of psychotherapist Linda Carroll and publisher Hank Harrison, Love spent her early life in Oregon and California where she was in a series of short-lived bands, and had a brief stint as a singer in Faith No More in 1982 before landing roles in cult films by director Alex Cox.[14] Love received international attention for Hole’s 1991 debut album, which was followed by widespread critical and commercial success with their second release, Live Through This (1994).[15][16] Love returned to acting in 1995, receiving critical recognition for her performance in Miloš Forman‘s The People vs. Larry Flynt, which earned her a Golden Globe Nomination. Following this, Hole’s third release, Celebrity Skin (1998), was nominated for three Grammy awards before the band went dormant in 2000.[17][18] Love continued to occasionally act in films before releasing a solo album,America’s Sweetheart (2004).[19]

Love re-formed Hole in 2009 with new members, and released the album Nobody’s Daughter (2010), which met mixed-positive reviews.[20][21] In April 2014, Love confirmed that she had been rehearsing material with Hole’s founding lead guitarist Eric Erlandson, as well as former bandmates Melissa Auf der Maur and Patty Schemel,[22] though confirmation of a reunion was not given. In May 2014, Love released a new solo single, titled “You Know My Name.
