Skinny Little Bitch

I have always admired Courtney Love. Not for the drug abuse stuff, obviously, or for her shockingly-poor approach to parenting, or that extremely unfortunate incident at Strummer’s funeral.

I’ve admired her for her music – which has always been strong, and fearless and honest – and for her guts. She’s been accused of every crime imaginable – killing her husband, killing Nirvana, never actually ever writing a song herself (because Cobain or Corgan really wrote her stuff, don’t you know). I always figured that she and Yoko Ono – the other much-reviled rock’n’roll villainess – should get together. They’d have a lot to talk about.

Anyway. Courtney, who is unkillable, is back with Hole (but it’s a Hole in name only, as it’s a brand-new Hole), and she is seriously kicking ass. Her new tune, Skinny Little Bitch, is a ball-busting, blood-and-sweat, take-no-prisoners bit of riffage, with Courtney snarling and spitting over top. It’s amazing, and it’s already charted on Billboard, despite being only out for a few days.

As far as I know, the official vid isn’t out yet. But I liked this fan’s work, and I think you will, too.

Kick it, girl.

    Good drawing – I like the glass slipper/Cinderella touch. Exactly – what else would happen with glass slippers? You end up with bloody feet.
    Power shoes for women are red – as in the fairy tale about the red shoes.

    Courtney isn’t my #1 choice for music, but she’s a bigger than life figure.

    Wow… *loved* it.

    Don’t think I ever have said that about Ono!

    Man, I’m glad that Miss Love is back. I’m glad that she’s back to using the “Hole” moniker despite the fact that Eric Erlandson is not involved. I’m also glad that this song is amazing.

    Last of all, I’m happy that I’m not the only person happy about this.
