Courtney Michelle Love (born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964) is an American rock musician and actress.

Following a turbulent childhood, Love rose to fame as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for alternative rock band Hole, and received immense media coverage for her highly-publicized marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, before and after his suicide in 1994. Her band Hole released two highly successful albums in the 1990s, Live Through This (1994) and Celebrity Skin (1998). The group would officially disband in 2002, but Love reformed Hole with new members in 2009, and released the band's fourth album, Nobody's Daughter (2010).

Love also starred in several films, most notably The People Vs. Larry Flynt (1996), which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination.
