Courtney Love had quite the night on Sunday, first ranting against a fan who held up a picture of Kurt Cobain before storming off stage, only to return and flash the audience. Afterward, she explained the diatribe (which you can watch in full in the gallery—it’s definitely NSFW), the Huffington Post reports. “Somebody holds up a Kurt T-shirt. They think it’s a compliment,” she said after the show, but it’s actually painful for her to look at. From there, she transitioned into owning Nirvana and giving money to Cobain’s family.

What does this all have to with Foo Fighters’ frontman and former Nirvana member Dave Grohl, whom Love also ranted against onstage? Well, as Love explained after the show, Cobain’s sister and mother are struggling for money, whereas Grohl “doesn’t need the money,” so “why the f***, then, does he have a Nirvana Inc. credit card and I don’t and last week he bought an Aston Martin on it?” You can watch her increasingly bizarre explanation, in all its NSFW glory, in the gallery. (Later in the show, Love also went topless—click to see a censored photo of her striptease.)
