15 years ago today (in 1995), Courtney Love threw candy at Kathleen Hanna and punched her in the face backstage at the Lollapalooza festival in George, Washington. Nine days later, Love described the incident on an AOL message board post:

“I was speaking to Beckster…Eric comes up behind me “Give some candy to Ratface, she’ll Flip!” He said I turned quickly and she was 2-3 feet from me smugly glaring -“BLECCCCHHHH” I screamed threw the candy in the air and at her, every witness there saw her attack(“”) me first, I do believe eventually my fist-ahhhhh-met her Rathead and it
was orgasmic- too bad the security-oh yeah “MY” security? I’m Axl Rose now? We have a co-tour mgr. who was there…”

Hanna pressed charges and Love ultimately plead guilty to assault later that September.

Happy 4th of July!

    Imagine a Hole concert that doubles as a complete Courtney Love meltdown. Not too hard to do. Now imagine it being 10 times more disastrous than that — Now imagine it being nearly three hours long. You can start to get a picture of the epic train wreck that was Hole’s Sunday night show at the 9:30 Club….

    I am firmly on Team Hannah in this fight.
