Courtney Love vs Lana Del Rey

With reference to Courtney Love’s recent Twitter comments about Lana Del Rey covering ‘Heart-Shaped Box’:

You do know the song is about my Vagina right? ‘Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,’ umm… On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?

You are all aware the song was originally called ‘Heart-Shaped Coffin’, right?

“Heart-Shaped Box” (or, as it was then called, “Heart-Shaped Coffin”) was the standout: Brimming over with rasping guitars and despair, and Kurt’s own realization of the situation he placed himself in with Courtney. The title was inspired by Courtney’s habit of laying out her collection of heart-shaped candy boxes in the living room and was, in part, a love song – although clearly line such as “I am buried in a heart-shaped coffin [box]” indicated the bleakness that isn’t present in most relationships. (Nirvana: The True Story)

Still at least neither of them did this.

    Wow, that evanessence cover is fucking awful. I wish I had never heard it. Honor the song by leaving it alone.

    @Joseph. Al Larsen deals with that video brilliantly, here.
