Jesus, I don’t even know what to do with this. At a small Sundance show last week, Courtney Love played an acoustic cover of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems,” and it is ridiculous. The pros: Courtney’s voice is still a powerful weapon, and she still has that husky emotive rasp to it even when she’s quasi-rapping; the finale, where she repeats the “hold my gun” line over and over, is powerful. The cons: She is Courtney love covering “99 Problems,” and she leaves at least one N-bomb intact. So. I mean. I don’t know. Watch fan footage below.
Love supposedly has a new single called “This Is War” ready to drop 2/7.
