Courtney Love says she believes Kurt Cobain would have lived if “In Bloom” had been Nirvana’s first single rather than “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
Cobain’s widow made the comment in a new interview saying, “Life would have turned out simpler and better had I been heard. I’m not really a fan of the idea that it all ‘could have’ been that different, but ‘In Bloom’ might have shifted things. He might have survived had somebody else [gone first]. Like Eddie Vedder, somebody who had good infrastructure.”
Pearl Jam’s debut album “Ten” hit No. 2 on the album chart, but not until August of 1992 after the success of “Nevermind.”
Do you think one song could have changed it all?
