If there were a poster child for the phrase “Hot Mess”, Courtney Love would assuredly be front and center. You can’t hear her name without your instant thoughts of drugs, grunge, smeared red lipstick and Kurt Cobain.

The cultural impact of Courtney Love has significance of epic proportions. Being the frontwoman for Hole, playing an instrument (electric guitar) that was largely dominated by men, the feminist lyrics she wrote and the unabashedly, highly sexual “Kinderwhore” fashion is ALL Courtney Love influence that you can still easily identified in today’s music.

The musician, actress and artist’s life plays out like a (still going) tragedy. Despite her rise to fame being tied to her music and acting career; her drug use and volatile relationships- most famously her marriage to Kurt Cobain and the on-again off-again estrangement from their daughter Frances Bean Cobain- has been what she’s MOSTLY known for. Not every can recognize a Hole record, or know that she is a Golden Globe nominated actress, but everyone knows Love as an icon.  Whether it's an icon that positively impacted a generation of women in music or an icon symbolic of how drugs negatively impact your life; the fact that she IS an icon cannot be argued.
