Love unveils new Nirvana song - Former Hole star makes suprise London DJ debut Courtney Love made her London DJing debut last week, and gave an exclusive airing to the unreleased Nirvana track, 'You Know You're Right'. Love arrived at the central London Metro Club - the venue for former Creation Records and Poptones impresario Alan McGee's new night, Death Disco-well past midnight last Thursday (March 21) and took to the decks for over an hour. Picking through her pal McGee's record bag, the former Hole frontwoman played tracks by The Strokes, the Stooges and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. And she couldn't resist playing The Hives, the band she recently said were better than her late husband Kurt Cobain's Nirvana. Love was accompanied on the evening by Anita Pallenberg, former girlfriend of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and original rock chick. She dedicated Primal Scream's 'Swastika Eyes' to Pallenberg. There was tight security around Love while she was at work, with security guards positioned by the DJ booth preventing eager clubbers from getting too close. When not playing tunes, Love took to the dancefloor. Speaking to NME about the event, McGee said: "Courtney Love is a true iconoclast and star. She truly rocked the club. The best bit for me was when she stuck on (Adam & The Ants') 'Antmusic' and ran into the sweaty throng. She's a true rock'n'roll star"
