What Should Courtney Title Her Memoir?

As you might have heard, Courtney Love will put out a memoir via HarperCollins sometime in 2012. Man, I’m getting vicariously anxious just thinking about potential revisions; that editor has his work cut out for him. What should the title be? Holes is already taken. Related to that, I hope Shia LeBouf never dates Frances Bean Cobain because then jokes about Holes will get stale. I do not want that to happen.

    C’mon, she made one great rock record, which is one more than any of you wiseasses.

    • I’m not one of those “Courtney killed Kurt” people, but do I think she had some *ahem* famous help during the writing of Live Through This. I mean, imagine Violet with Kurt vocals. That’s an obvious NIRVANA song. Never mind that prior to the NIRVANA box set Hole recorded and took credit for Old Age…

      • It’s hard to ignore the arc of Hole’s career as Kurt came into and out of Courtney’s life (Before Kurt – unlistenable; During Kurt – one of the best albums of the decade; After Kurt – unlistenable). And, playing the guitar parts on LTT and seeing how similar they are in some parts to Nirvana’s chord progressions … it’s hard to ignore.

        However, in Courtney’s defense, I’d say the following:

        - She didn’t screw it up
        - She undeniably wrote the lyrics, which are perhaps the album’s strongest feature
        - Her vocal performance on that album is phenomenal.
        - There’s a story behind every great album. Inspiration (at one extreme) to ghost writing (at the other) happens all the time, and to the greatest bands. It’s not to hard to imagine a period of intense creative collaboration during whatever moments of lucidity Kurt & Courtney managed to pull off.

        And, if we were to review the bands that ended up sounding like Nirvana … well, the Internet doesn’t have enough space.
