The Worst '90s Relic: Booing Courtney Love

PORTLAND, Ore. (TheStreet) -- For a brief moment, Nirvana's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had me rethinking my reluctance to attend the ceremony in Brooklyn.

Dave Grohl thanked every drummer who ever played in Nirvana, paid tribute to his heroes (including most of The Melvins), thanked his cool parents and implored young musicians to keep at it -- with help from a lot of F bombs in between. Krist Novocelic thanked all Nirvana's fans and turned the focus back to Kurt Cobain and those who got the band started. Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, said little, but had her words land hardest of all. Acknowledging that the Kurt she knew might have taken a more aloof approach to the Hall of Fame than everyone on stage, she drove the greater point of her presence home succinctly: "I just miss him so much. He was such an angel."

It could have ended there. For the angrier, least realist onlookers it probably did. But Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, was given the opportunity to speak. Greeted initially with cheers, Love couldn't get to the "This is my family I'm looking at right now, all of you" portion of her speech without the room disintegrating into a back-and-forth of supportive shouts and droning boos.
