Kurt Cobain's Ashes Stolen from Courtney Love's L.A. Home

June 2, 2008 9:10 AM ET

The remainder of Kurt Cobain's ashes have been stolen from Courtney Love. Love was storing the ashes in a pink bear-shaped handbag that was hidden in the wardrobe closet of her Hollywood home and believes the bag was taken by a former friend. "I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me. I find it disgusting and right now I'm suicidal," Love said. The majority of Cobain's ashes were spread at a New York Buddhist temple and in Washington's Wishkah River, but Love said she kept a small amount (as well as a lock of his hair) for herself. This isn't the first time Love has had something of her husband stolen: In March, Love alleged that thieves used Cobain's social security number to steal several million dollars from his estate. In both cases, Love believes she knows who is responsible for the theft.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
