Hole was an underrated band, if you throw away all the bullshit surrounding them and just listen to the two records the original group made: Live Through This and–my favorite–Celebrity Skin. (Also known, respectively, as “the one Kurt Cobain wrote” and “the one Billy Corgan wrote.”) Soaring, dumbfuck electric guitars over chiming Laurel Canyon acoustics, and that growly, midrange, roundwound-string bass sound that everyone in the 90’s stole from Kim Deal.

Plus, Courtney Love sang like a rock star, like she had eight extra mouths just so she could dangle more cigarettes from her lips.
