* ArtistDisillusionment: Her speech about how artists are unfairly treated by the record industry is surprisingly insightful, informative and well-written.
* CreativeDifferences: [[Music/FooFighters Dave Grohl]]. The two have had strong feelings about each other and have been in multiple legal battles ever since Cobain's death and Nirvana's dissolution. It's possible that they have reconciled to some extent. At Nirvana's induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, the two embraced on stage to thunderous applause.
* CreatorBreakdown:
** Courtney Love has been a staple of the Celebrity Death Pool for many, many years. She spent the entirely of the nineties off her head.
** In her "good" public appearances she comes across as an elegant raconteur. Her "bad" public appearances lead many to believe that she has bipolar disorder, a condition that Kurt Cobain also had. Ironically, Courtney's mother was a psychotherapist. (The rocker opened up two separate accounts for "Good Sister" and "Bad Sister", named for one of her songs, to [[http://jezebel.com/5882326/a-tale-of-two-courtneys duke it out over Twitter.]] It got to the point where Francis Bean personally asked Twitter to delete her mother's account.)



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The 1995 Hole lineup played a show together in 2012 on a whim, while the ''Nobody's Daughter'' lineup was still touring as Hole. Courtney has been dropping hints that she wants to do something more with this for years, but still nothing concrete has happened for various reasons[[note]]Melissa has a family and a business to run in New York, and the rest of the band lives in Seattle or LA[[/note]].

to:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: FollowTheLeader:
** She feels this way about Creator/TaylorMomsen.
** For Love herself, Music/StevieNicks, who she strongly admires.
** She reinvented UnkemptBeauty for the 90s, with tattered little dresses, [[UncannyValleyMakeup smeared makeup]] and unbrushed hair. The look in question, Kinderwhore, was the attempt to look like a prostitute crossed with a child playing dress-up. She was accused of stealing it from Kat Bjelland of Music/BabesInToyland.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Courtney Love would have been one of the guest stars in the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]]'' episode "Homerpalooza" if Music/SonicYouth hadn't refused to do the episode if she was involved.
** Quentin Tarantino approached Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love to play "Lance" and "Jody" in ''Film/PulpFiction'', but they declined. Lance was the drug dealer, not the stickup guy at the diner. Jody was the girl with all the piercings, not the stickup gal at the diner. (Tarantino is thanked in the liner notes to ''In Utero''. Nirvana is also thanked on the back of the ''Pulp Fiction'' soundtrack.)

* YokoOhNo: She was verbally abusive to Kurt when he was in his depressive stages. After his death, she was the sole heir to her husband's musical IP and kept it to herself. Kurt's estate is worth a half billion dollars. The band was furious at her undermining and prevention of a lot of great music from being released.

* CreatorBacklash: She called her solo album 'a mistake', and admitted she was too loaded on drugs to really care about recording it. She did like a few songs on it however and her favorite track from it, "Mono" is still performed live by her regularly.
** She also regrets "reuniting" Hole, and wishes she'd been brave enough to actually put Nobody's Daughter out under her own name.

* {{Promoted Fan|boy}}girl: Love managed to convince [[Music/SonicYouth Kim Gordon]] to produce the first Hole album by sending her a letter about how much they admired her work and in particular "the SST album"[[hottip:*:It's not clear whether she's talking about ''EVOL'' or ''Sister'']], along with copies she owned of early SY singles.
