I think that what I liked/like about Nirvana was that there was a fierceness that didn’t end up looking stupid and a sensitivity that didn’t end up looking feeble. There where quite a few of these so-called paradoxes going on in Kurt’s vocals and they added a lot of the types of emotional complexity that are recognisable to those prone to angst.   

The simplicity of many of the songs doesn’t take away anything from that aspect and you could argue that the surrounding music does it a big favour by not crowding it out. Obviously, some people do like 3 chords songs or simple rock-out songs for "ROCK!!!" alone and for a long time I didn't realise that these were a different type of Nirvana fan (not calling them Illegitimate fans as some might insinuate).

And, Of course, there is the hype-factor but it is unavoidable unfortunately.

I also like some "Hole" and both bands are highlights from my teen era. Most other music I purchased could be looked upon as a naive burning of money.

I don’t know if she’s talking literally of a curse, but she has had a lot of bad fortune so perhaps she just made a link. Beyond the "superstition" angle, perhaps seeing the royalty cheques in the account on a regular basis or having to deal with record execs and royalty issues is unpleasant. Most importantly, there will be no more approaches from people wanting to buy the catalogue. Getting the cash means those dealings are done with.

Yeah, not much of a fan myself.  There are a couple songs I think are alright, but I've never purchased an album or wanted to.

however, interviews with madonna often lead to insight into courtney love, even if they leave you even more clueless about madonna than before.

Only the ones where she gets pelted by makeup compacts.

She totally hijacked that interview.  That is just one of the reasons why I love Courtney Love.
