Frances Bean Cobain discussed Kurt Cobain and Nirvana in an April 2015 interview with Rolling Stone.

“I don’t really like Nirvana that much [grins]. 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. But ‘Territorial Pissings’ [on Nevermind] is a fucking great song. And ‘Dumb’ [on In Utero] – I cry every time 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.”

She also discussed meeting Nirvana’s surviving members. “It’s very weird how genes are. Dave [Grohl], Krist [Novoselic] and Pat [Smear] came over to a house where I was living. It was the first time [the ex-Nirvana members] had been together in a long time. And they had what I call the ‘K. C. Jeebies,’ which is when they see me, they see Kurt. They look at me, and you can see they’re looking at a ghost. They were all getting the K. C. Jeebies hardcore. Dave said, ‘She is so much like Kurt.’ They were all talking amongst themselves, rehashing old stories I’d heard a million times. I was sitting in a chair, chain-smoking, looking down like this [affects total boredom]. And they went, ‘You are doing exactly what your father would have done.’

But I was glad they came over [smiles[. It was a cool experience, like having a Nirvana reunion minus one. Except for his spawn.”

    I seriously can’t stand this girl. She utterly repulses me at this point. Nevermind the fact that she rips her father off at every turn artistically and for financial gain. It’s something else…it’s like seeing this should-be smoking hot hybrid of early-90s Courtney and Kurt, except it’s covered in wretched prison tattoos with the smug arrogance and glib aura of her mother in the new millennium.

    • O9

      More annoying is she refers to him as Kurt. she gets to sit around for hours doing her art and not working to feed herself is cuz of his money. At least refer to him as biological father or something:/ I don’t want to pile on the young lady but she doesn’t realize she’s actually done less than the Kardashians and yet cussed out Kendal Jenner few years back.

    • O9

      In fact I believe she comes off more smug than Courtney. Courtney was/is loud, obnoxious, perhaps a money /fame obsessed leech/ but she has a modicum of humility I don’t see in her daughter. Makes sense as FB has only known privilege, wealth and people fawning over her

      • Felonious Punk

        Sweet avatar, bro

        • Corndog

          You should trademark that shit:)

          • Felonious Punk

            Nah, there’s only one Felonious and nobody’s denying that at this point 😀

          • Corndog

            Is it like a fan or a groupy or something?

          • Felonious Punk

            Hopefully it’s a groupie! I have an open-door policy there..

  • http://www.cuntcertfy.nut/ Whip

    Right… art. Meanwhile, 99% of true artists are broke, living in anonymity. She steals a womb from her OBGYN, and sticks a half torched doll inside with a chain and makes the news. Horrible.

    • Corndog

      Agreed. It’s crap.

      • Kdubs80

        Bet if it was Eddie Vedder’s kid you would be all about it. Never understood you being made a mod. it’s called alternative nation and used to be grungereport. If you don’t like Nirvana and Cobain, maybe this isn’t the place for you. This of course isn’t rocket science.

        • Ishmael

          Ok, according to your logic everything nirvana related news MUST be useful and must be declared as great by the users, otherwise they are on the wrong side. there is a place where you could be living a happy life. it’s called north korea.

          • Kdubs80

            No that is not my logic. This guy disses everything about Nirvana and Cobain. I just find it odd that he’d mod a page that revolves around the scene that Cobain was the leader of if he hates the guy. Also, Pearl Jam sucks. Just sayin’

          • Corndog

            That’s bullshit. I do not ‘diss everything about Nirvana and Cobain’, nor do I hate the guy.

            You seem to be mistaken. This is not a Nirvana fan site. Perhaps you need to broaden your musical horizons if you think there is nothing to alternative music other than Nirvana?

            Far as you thinking PJ suck, um, so what? Am I supposed to give a shit? The only opinion on PJ I care about is my own. I’m really not at all concerned with what you think about them, in the same way you shouldn’t be concerned with what I think of Nirvana. It should be irrelevant to you, just as your opinion is to me.

          • Kevin Gill

            wow if kurt and eddie could see this

          • Corndog

            See what exactly? An obvious troll (who has since shame deleted all his own posts) who tried to first start some shit by claiming that i rag on Nirvana and Cobain all the time and when that didn’t work he thought he’d try having a go at Pearl Jam making the erroneous assumption that i would somehow care whether he liked them or not.

            That’s what i saw, because that’s exactly what happened.

        • Corndog

          If it was Vedder’s kid it would be just as shite….

          I don’t dislike Nirvana. I’m just not overly keen on them anymore, but there was a time many moons ago when I would have called them my favourite band. It’s not like Nirvana are the only alternative band in existence. That of course isn’t rocket science. Lots of people that post on the site aren’t overly fond of them either.

          I’ve been visiting this site for about 5 years now. Pretty sure I would have noticed by now if it wasn’t the place for me, but thanks for the concern. As for me being the mod, it’s really not necessary that you understand so don’t worry your pretty little head about it. Perhaps if you don’t like the sites mod this isn’t the place for you?

        • Felonious Punk

          Neither is discerning that this particular article has nothing to do with Nirvana or Kurt Cobain.

          Oh look, another AN lurker coming out of their hole to call out a regular. Move over, Elias.

          • Kdubs80

            Right, an article about Kurt Cobain’s daughter making art that resembles the artwork for Nirvana In Utero has nothing to do with Kurt Cobain or Nirvana. I’m not a “lurker” I just have a life unlike you and corndog that apparently just hang on this message board every day.

          • Felonious Punk

            What a life that must be, that you feel the need to come here and tell me and the C-Dog how lame ours is. I guess people can’t even read the rock news anymore without that one dipshit getting his lace panties knotted.

            Are you feeling left out, “Kdubs”? Boy, you must be a real hit with the ladies, flexing a name like that. That might explain why you’re so butthurt to begin with. Appreciate your concern for how my life is rolling, based on these tell-all posts I apparently make..

  • Corndog

    That’s shite, and if anyone else was releasing it everyone would be saying it was shite.

    Oh how it must be amazing to just be born into money and have everything handed to you. You can do crazy things like just decide you’re an artist, even though you don’t appear to have any artistic talent whatsoever.

    She irritates the hell out of me. Well, not as much as Will Smith’s two entitled little bastards, but pretty close…

    • dakotablue

      You’re being a little hard on her. This sculpture is not much of anything, but I’ve seen a few of her paintings that I think are pretty good.

      • Corndog

        I’m not fond of her artwork at all, but I respect your opinion:)

  • nomad

    Yawn. High school kids make stuff like this.

  • Kdubs80

    It’s actually quite good. Sculpture is a difficult medium to work with. Anybody’s art can be ripped to shreds as “crap, etc.”

    • Toad Wallop

      Dude, she defaced a prop from a prenatal care office.

      • Kdubs80

        All art is subjective. I’m not saying this piece is amazing, but the fact that we are all discussing it makes it more relevant than a lot of art made every day. Perhaps that was her intention.

        • Felonious Punk

          So the fact that we’re debating what a doofus you are makes you more relevant than the others who post here, by that logic?

          Yea, I think not.

          • Kdubs80

            It’s more along the lines of: I have an art education and get paid for creating art hundred of thousands of dollars a year for creating art. You are probably unemployed and living in your mom’s basement in some shitty city like Cincinnati. Therefore I’m much more qualified to talk about art than you. I love how you keep calling for your buddies. Be a little bitch mommas boy and get your “backup” since you can’t handle anything in life by yourself.

    • Felonious Punk

      Well, this pretty much explains all I care to know about you. You seriously want to pop up here criticizing a moderator for not liking Nirvana and then defend this bullshit as “art”? I could have made this in 20 minutes, with my eyes closed and one arm tied to my leg.

      Don’t confuse “art” with “bullshit”. She stuck a doll in an oven for a few minutes, draped a chain around it and placed it in a plastic prop. And it *still* looks like an embarrassing In Utero ripoff.

      • Kdubs80

        Yeah, except that would mean you would have to leave your computer for 10 minutes and do something else for once. “Regulars” smh is that really how Brett intended the message board for his website to operate? For a comment to be relevant it needs to come from somebody that chills here all day commenting on every article? Nice!

        • Felonious Punk

          Well, it at least needs to come from someone who comes here often, supports the site’s mission statement, and has a rapport with the other people who regularly come here.

          None of which you have, I’m afraid. You’re just some troll who’s been checking in the last few days to tell us how upset he is Alt Nation exists. Slow down there, Sheikster! There’s enough soda in the fridge for everyone, you don’t have to be that one asshole who gets the first one.

          Seriously dude, fuck off. Or chill out and play nice. Before we get cranky.

  • Toad Wallop

    Isn’t that about what she could have looked like at birth? I’m sure she was conceived in between needles. She probably wouldn’t have been that fat though.

  • tahoegeminii

    is that how she felt in Courtney’s poisonous womb?

  • Shane99

    What does this chick actually do, I mean, how does she make herself useful? Where is her value?

    Just the “cool chick” poses, and this lame “art”, that’s who she is?

    • Toad Wallop

      Don’t forget the part about plastic surgery. That’s not even her real face. Look at pictures of her as a teen. She had a fat nose and skinny lips. Now, she has her father’s nose, and fatter lips. She had a nose similar to her mother’s pre-surgery nose.

      • Corndog

        Yes the before and after pics are quite shocking. She looks like a completely different person.

        I don’t know how folks can do that to themselves. I’m not sure i could go in for surgery even if it was necessary. I’m a bit of a pussy. I tend to pass out at first sight of my own blood…

        • Shane99

          Haha. Luckily, I’ve never seen much of my own blood. So, I cannot claim to be any better at handling that.

          • Felonious Punk

            That’s probably what she’ll do next: dunk a baby in a swimming pool, wrap a chain around it, drop a few droplets of her blood in the water and call it art.

          • Shane99

            Wouldn’t surprise me. I notice she didn’t forget to mention how people notice she is like her father…but she doesn’t care about that.

          • Felonious Punk

            Right down to her Kurt Cobain lookalike husband, no doubt.

            Congratulations, Frances: you get the dubious distinction of being both creepy AND gross

    • Corndog

      She’s Kim Kardashian with a smaller arse and a slightly more famous father.

      • Felonious Punk

        Who also has incredibly bad tattoos and a husband who looks just like her father.

  • O9

    I think the word is plagiarism rather than inspired. Unless she stated this was inspired by Kurt art.

  • cb

    artistic expression. keep creating, Frances. I am sure we will continue to see great works of art from her. both she and her father are gifted with the art genes, they both paint and draw and MUSIC, sure she will create great music as well. she is a Cobain.
