On March 19, Courtney Love and her new band-mates took the stage at Spin‘s annual SXSW party as the latest reincarnated version of Hole. The show, which was the band’s first tour date since their final tour in 1999, surprisingly garnered positive reviews even though Love displayed her usual erratic behavior. If anything, it was a smart PR move to properly showcase their first album in over ten years, Nobody’s Daughter.


For girls who came of age in the mid-1990s, streaked their hair with Manic Panic, accessorized baby-doll dresses with combat boots and thrift-store cardigans, and crammed dog-eared copies of Sassy into each others' lockers, Courtney Love can feel like something of a pet cause. In 1994, Live Through This, Hole's second LP-- released, famously, in the wake of Kurt Cobain's suicide, after Love spent the weekend tottering through a vigil in a Seattle Center park-- was transformative, instructive, and beloved. That harsh, throaty gasp at the end of "Violet" was so authentically e

xhausted it felt like a promise: I'm giving you all I've got. We took it.



Fav tracks: Skinny Little Bitch, Honey, Samantha e Nobody's Daughter
Least fav: Codine


Not really a Hole album per se, but more of a Courtney Love vanity project with the Hole moniker to raise the sales. Overall a decent enough effort but it lacks the spice that made their other albums so inventive and powerful. Listen to: Skinny Little Bitch, Nobody's Daughter, Samantha, Pacific Coast Highway.
