Courtney Love recently unloaded on Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl in a somewhat-coherent tirade, where she claimed he’s a “sociopath” who’s “obsessed with his hatred” of Kurt Cobain.

The Hole frontwoman once again taken her voice of displeasure to the Internet, this time under the screen-name “Rose OfSharon” on Gothamist.com. A post about the use of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ in ‘The Muppets’ movie — a topic she’s previously sounded off on — caught Love’s attention, so naturally she took to the comment section to air her dirty laundry.

Translating from the lengthy, typo-filled rant — Love alleges that she shot down use of Nirvana‘s music in not only ‘The Muppets,’ but also on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ the upcoming film ‘Battleship’ and in Gatorade-related media. She also claims that Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic only hold a 1.2% share of the publishing rights to the song ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ before saying that “we wrote every single note” — referring to herself and late husband Kurt Cobain.

Love further claimed that the “lawyer-owned” website TMZ — who claims she did sell half of her rights to the music — aims to portray her as “crazy,” before attacking Gawker, Disney and calling Dave Grohl a “sociopath” amongst other things [typos included]:

[Dave Grohl] is obsessed not so much with me with his hatred of kurt- he knew kurt never wanted to be disneyfied, i know lisa henson [daughter of Muppets creator Jim Henson] very well and as gawker you should be slightly more responsible-= and not believe every piece of expoiltative bulls— you hear in fact this is an epic f—ing scandal

As usual, Dave Grohl has not responded to Love’s statements. Ironically, Love also just retweeted and commented on a Twitter post by ’The Muppets’ star and co-writer Jason Segel.
