In the latest Rolling Stone, as well as news surrounding the Cobain documentary Montage of Heck, Kurt’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain has spoken out about the film (which she executive produced) as well as her father’s music.
“I don’t really like Nirvana that much. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre. [laughs] The grunge scene is not what I’m interested in.”
Well, at least she’s honest. However, she’s a fan of two songs.
“But ‘Territorial Pissings’ is a fucking great song. And “Dumb” – I cry everytime I hear that song. It’s a stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself – of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation.”
A massive statement that she’s previously recognized is the impact of her father’s death and the fame that came with that.
She continues to say, “He’s larger than life. And our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible . . . But he wasn’t. He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt. He became even bigger after he died than he was when he was alive. You don’t think it could have gotten any bigger. But it did.”
