It remains one of the best lesbian love songs of all time. Hawkins, I had to find out who was singing this sexy love song. Sophie, who coined the term "omnisexual", just had to end up on this top lesbian love songs list. We couldn't talk about lesbian love songs without mentioning k. If only I could have had as frank a song about kissing girls when I was growing up.
The sport dyke isn't characterized so much as being attracted to other women as much as she is obsessed with her sport of choice. Not all lesbians are sport dykes, but all sport dykes are definitely lesbians. The baby dyke lesbian is a fond title given to a woman who has just come out of the closet and started becoming a part of the lesbian community. She could be femme, butch, chapstick, or anything else, but for now she is characterized by her newness to the scene.

In June , she was found dead of a heroin overdose in the bathroom of her Seattle home, 2 months after the death of Cobain. Pfaff's life, and her role in the recording of 'Live Through This' is, according to Pfaff's brother, the subject of an upcoming book by British authors Sara Hawys Roberts and Guy Mankowski , who he's collaborating with.
Recruiting bassist Melissa Auf der Maur over the summer, they commenced their world tour on August 26 at the Reading Festival in England, giving a performance that John Peel described as "teetering on the edge of chaos. Love's reckless stage presence during the tour became a media spectacle, drawing press from MTV and other outlets due to her unpredictable performances.
I'm not out there with that fucking pink flag or anything, but it's good for other people who live somewhere else in some small town who feel freaky about being gay to know that there's other people who are and that it's okay. We had a really safe place [in Hole].
Courtney was a force that would not allow any of us to be spoken down to—or any of that kind of behavior in a space that we were in—no matter where we were. She was good at that.
I felt safe in my band to come out as a gay woman. Toward the end of the tour, the band released their first EP , titled Ask for It , in September ; it featured Peel session recordings, as well as covers of songs by Wipers and The Velvet Underground.
The concert was a promotional event for the Molson Brewery , and also featured performances by Metallica , Veruca Salt , and Moist. Hole released two retrospective albums during this time: firstly, their second EP, titled The First Session , which consisted of a complete version of the band's first recording session at Rudy's Rising Star in Los Angeles in March , some of which had been bootlegged widely years prior.
It featured the group's first ever recorded track, " Turpentine ", which had previously been unreleased to the public. Upon the album's release, Corgan told CNN that he should have "been given credit [for writing the entire album]. Billy really facilitated things, in a way I would bring in the music, Courtney would start coming up with lyrics right away, and [Billy] would help map it all out.
Nobody else is writing those lyrics and nobody ever has. Combine those conspiracy theories with the unfounded but persistent rumor that Cobain was actually murdered, and it is no surprise that, in the song "Celebrity Skin", Love calls herself a walking study in demonology. Although Schemel is listed as drummer in the liner notes of the record, her drumming does not actually appear on the record; she was replaced by session drummer Deen Castronovo , under pressure from producer Michael Beinhorn.
Celebrity Skin was a critical success with strong sales and successful singles, including the title track, " Celebrity Skin ", " Malibu ", and " Awful ". The album received largely positive reviews, with praise from music periodicals such as Rolling Stone , NME , and Blender ,   as well as a four-star review from the Los Angeles Times ,  calling it a "wild emotional ride" sure to be "one of the most dissected and debated collections of the year.
In the winter of —99, Hole went on tour to promote Celebrity Skin , joining Marilyn Manson , who was promoting his album, Mechanical Animals on the " Beautiful Monsters Tour ".
The band continued to book shows and headline festivals after dropping off Manson's tour, and according to Auf der Maur, it was a "daily event" for Love to invite audience members onstage to sing with her for the last song at nearly every concert performance. On June 17, , seven years after Hole's disbandment, NME reported that Love was re-forming the band with guitarist Micko Larkin for an upcoming album, on which Melissa Auf der Maur would be providing backup vocals.
Hole launched a new website and various social media pages on January 1, , and performed on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross in February. Nobody's Daughter was released on April 26, worldwide on Mercury Records , and was received moderately well by music critics. She doesn't have that power in her lungs anymore — barely a trace. But at least she remembers, and that means something in itself. What's more, better it come from a year-old woman who knows how to throw her weight around than from the zitty newbies and tattooed road dogs who churn most of it out these days.
I know—for her, BP Petroleum is just something else to pretend about. But the emotion fueling her pretense is cathartic nevertheless. Schemel had expressed a desire to record with Love, Erlandson and Auf der Maur stating "nothing has been discussed, but I have a feeling.
That's just my thing. There's rumblings; there's always bloody rumblings. But if it's not miserable and it's going forward and I'm happy with it In May , a music video for " Samantha " was shot in Istanbul , although it remained officially unreleased. On December 28, , Love posted two photos of herself with Erlandson on Facebook and Twitter , with a caption reading: "And this just happened Shortly after, Love curtailed her statement, saying: "We may have made out but there is no talk of marriage.
It's very frail, nothing might happen, and now the band are all flipping out on me. I should save "Hole" for the lineup everybody wants to see and had the balls to put Nobody's Daughter under my own name. No one's been dormant. Patty teaches drumming and drums in three indie bands. Melissa has her metal-nerd thing going on—her dream is to play Castle Donington with Dokken.
Eric hasn't flipped—I jammed with him, he's still doing his Thurston [Moore]-crazy tunings, still corresponding with Kevin Shields. We all get along great.
There are bands who reunite and hate each others' guts. Nothing transpired after the event, since Love had relocated to the United Kingdom afterwards. Initially, Hole drew inspiration from no wave and experimental bands, which is evident in their earliest recordings, specifically " Retard Girl ", but frontwoman Love also drew from a variety of influences.
Courtney brought it into rehearsal, and she knew, like, three chords and it was the only punk rock song we could play. The band's second album Live Through This , captured a less abrasive sound, while maintaining the group's original punk roots. The group's third album, Celebrity Skin , incorporated power pop into their hard rock sound, and was heavily inspired by California bands; Love was also influenced by Fleetwood Mac and My Bloody Valentine while writing the album.
The group's chord progressions by and large drew on elements of punk music,  which Love described as "grungey", although not necessarily grunge. In a interview, Love stated that lyrics were "the most important" element of songwriting for her.
In a interview with Everett True , Love said: "I try to place [beautiful imagery] next to fucked up imagery, because that's how I view things I sometimes feel that no one's taken the time to write about certain things in rock, that there's a certain female point of view that's never been given space.
Throughout Hole's career, Love's lyrics were often influenced by literature: The title of the band's second album Live Through This , for example as well as lyrics from the track " Asking for It " is directly drawn from Gone With the Wind ;  and the group's single " Celebrity Skin " the title track to their album , contains quotes from Shakespeare 's The Merchant of Venice  and Dante Rossetti 's poem A Superscription.
Throughout the duration of the s, the band received widespread media coverage due to Love's often rambunctious and unpredictable behavior onstage. The most shocking, frightening, and fascinating image in rock in the last few years is Courtney Love's stage dive When some male performers do it, it looks like muscular, frat-boy fun, controlled aggression For obvious reasons, the practice was strictly no-girls-allowed, but Love, typically, decided that she wanted to do it, too.
Groped, ravaged, she compared the experience to being raped , wrote a song about it, and now does it just about every show. Nina Gordon of Veruca Salt , who toured with Hole in , recalled Love's erratic behavior onstage, saying "She would just go off and [the rest of the band] would just kind of stand there.
It's disgusting. I'm ashamed. There's death and there's disease and there's misery and there's giving up your soul The human spirit mixed with certain powders is not the person, it's [a] demonic presence.
Love's stage attire also garnered notoriety, influenced in part by Carroll Baker 's wardrobe in the film Baby Doll The band teetered on the edge of chaos, generating a tension which I cannot remember having felt before from any stage. The band's set lists for live shows were often loose, featuring improvisational jams and rough performances of unreleased songs. By , their live performances had become less aggressive and more restrained, although Love continued to bring fans onstage, and would often go into the crowd while singing.
Hole was one of the most commercially successful female-fronted alternative rock bands in history, selling over 3 million records in the United States between and While Rolling Stone compared the effect of Love's marriage to Cobain on the band to that of John Lennon and Yoko Ono , they noted that "Love's confrontational stage presence, as well as her gut-wrenching vocals and powerful punk-pop songcraft, made her an alternative-rock star in her own right.
It was confirmed, in , that the entire Hole back catalogue, along with hundreds of other artists' music, was completely lost, meaning reissues and remasters are now unlikely. Courtney Love and the band were one of the artists suing UMG for the loss; however, on August 16, , the band was removed from that lawsuit as it was amended "based on UMG's representations that none of Hole's original masters were destroyed subject to confirmation ".
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Alternative rock band from Los Angeles, California. Hole performing during a set in Brooklyn , New York City, Alternative rock punk rock grunge. In Euripides' Medea , when she kills the bride and her own child, she says "There's a hole that pierces my soul. See also: Live Through This Tour. Our band is a collective, but Courtney has a lot of ideas and it's weird how they infiltrate our lives—it just happens.
Like with the drowning theme, there were all these things going on while we were making this album, like Jeff Buckley drowning. And years before [bassist] Kristen [Pfaff] died in a bathtub. My father died basically drowning in his own body, he couldn't breathe, and Melissa's father died of lung cancer.
Those were literal things, but drowning became a metaphor for this record and for all the people we had lost.
