Whether or not Kurt Cobain did actually indeed write any Hole songs is debatable. The fact is the only great record Hole made was when Courtney was with Kurt, this fact is undisputable. The first Hole album, produced by Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, Pretty On The Inside, is largely an average affair. Sure enough it does have that guttural Courtney Love roar which is without doubt the stand out feature but if you’re looking for memorable tunes it’s album number 2 where it at for tunage. For song writing ‘Live Through This’ really was streets ahead of ‘Pretty On Inside’, and is really the only album by Hole you need. The Courtney Love guttural roar is still there but with added tunes. The third, and lets be honest last Hole album, Celebrity Skin has its moments but some of it is just lacking. Billy Corgan would go on to claim he wrote the whole thing… make of that what you will… Some bands exist for just one album, Hole are one of those bands.
