Frances Bean Cobain has responded to her mother Courtney Love's recent Twitter rant accusing Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl of hitting on her 19-year-old daughter.

"While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn," says Cobain. "I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way.  I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother."

Grohl also shot down Love's accusations. "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant," he said in a statement released late yesterday. "These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
