Kurt Cobain's Gross L.A. Apartment

Lately we’ve seen photos of Kurt Cobain’s childhood home in Aberdeen as well as new images from the scene of his death in Seattle. Why not some photos of Cobain and Courtney Love’s gross Los Angeles apartment too? As The New York Daily News reports, newly released stills document the mess Cobain and Love left behind after moving out of their Fairfax apartment in 1992. The images of the trashed apartment include a VHS of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are,” a withered rose, a letter from Congressman Henry Waxman, unopened mail, business cards, Smarties, pill bottles, graffiti tributes to Nation Of Ulysses and Matador Records’ Gerard Cosloy, and, uncomfortably, a burnt spoon possibly used to shoot heroin. See the photos here.

  1. Smells like Teen Spirit

  2. Well this is a shock. Junkies are usually so tidy…looks like John Frusciante was their decorator.

  3. Where are his skis?

  4. Someone’s not getting their security deposit back.

  5. I think we know where the missing Malaysia jet is now…

    • …I dunno, I thought the joke was funny considering Courtney was the laughing stock of the Internet last week for suggesting she knew its whereabouts. Sorry.

  6. Riverdale neighborhood?

  7. This man is a hero. He died so we could collectively feel authentic angst. Imagine if he didn’t kill himself. Dude would be like Conor Oberst or some millionaire crying about shit while in a scented bubblebath in a mansion

  8. Nice to know that Kurt was so insecure of losing his underground cred after selling out (or making it big, blah blah) that he had to trash his apartment with another band’s name. What a poser.

  9. All items pictured soon to be on Ebay. Bidding for the Smarties box starts at $20, but hey, free shipping!
