Frasi Courtney Love
„Il nome della mia band, Hole, deriva da una conversazione con mia madre. Le persone pensano sempre che si riferisca a qualcosa di osceno; invece lei mi disse: "Courtney, non puoi andare avanti così, con questo grande buco (hole) di angoscia solo perché hai avuto un'infanzia difficile". Ed io pensai: "Hole! Che nome stupendo!"“

„Per le donne è ancora difficile riuscire a farsi strada nel mondo della musica. Ci sono forse 30 donne che ci sono riuscite considerando anche il mondo del pop. Di rockstar donne non so, ma ce ne sono pochissime. Ma penso che per noi sia più difficile che per gli uomini, in questo mondo ci sono due pesi e due misure quando si tratta delle donne.“
„Il rock è praticamente morto, almeno che non arrivi qualcuno in grado di salvarlo, i nuovi Oasis o i nuovi Nirvana. C'è bisogno di qualcosa di innovativo, qualcosa che sia in grado di toccare la vita delle persone, soprattutto di quelle più giovani. La nuova generazione, a parte poche eccezioni, è cresciuta con la musica rap e non con il rock.“

„Releasing those songs into the void, and not having the void answer back, led all of us to splinter off and attempt to make our mark by deconstructing. Instead of going forward with my tunesmithing, I went back to the beginning. And that’s what Pretty on the Inside was about.“
On the failure of her first band, Sugar Babydoll, and the subsequent beginnings of her career, interview with The Georgia Straight (1999)
Contesto: Releasing those songs into the void, and not having the void answer back, led all of us to splinter off and attempt to make our mark by deconstructing. Instead of going forward with my tunesmithing, I went back to the beginning. And that’s what Pretty on the Inside was about. I said, ‘I’m not going to follow any of the songwriting values that I’ve been learning for a good seven years. Instead, I’m going to set up on my own land and make my own stake, and see where it goes.’ And the next place that takes me is Seattle, where what was happening was so heavy, and so intense.

On women playing guitar, Pitchfork (1 May 2014)
Contesto: If I see a chick playing guitar, I’m drawn to that band immediately. I want to know everything, even if it’s completely electronic. But you have to really get my attention if you’re male. I can’t help it. It’s part of my nature.

„I love being around people that are smarter than me, that think faster than me. So even if you're a dork, and you wear stupid clothes, and you make a fool of yourself, and everyone makes fun of you, and you're just an idiot—I don't care about the context. I don't care. If you're genius and I recognize it, I kind of dig that.“
On people she is attracted to, The Return of Courtney Love (2006)
Phoenix Theatre, Toronto, Ontario; September 1, 1994
„The American male runs half of the global world and grows up on rock music from day one. If you can alter the psyche of someone who's growing up to be a rapist or a total misogynist, you're creating values and instead of making the void bigger, you're making it smaller.“
On her goals in songwriting, The Guardian (December 11, 1991)
„I wore a dress that was so restricting and shoes that were five inches high, I could barely stage-dive. Then I got the best write-ups, for being feminine, I guess. I couldn’t move well and I was restrained, which equals great review. That’s pretty horrid.“

„Since I’ve basically been giving my music away for free under the old system, I’m not afraid of wireless, MP3 files or any of the other threats to my copyrights. Anything that makes my music more available to more people is great. MP3 files sound cruddy, but a well-made album sounds great. And I don’t care what anyone says about digital recordings. At this point they are good for dance music, but try listening to a warm guitar tone on them. They suck for what I do. … I’m looking for people to help connect me to more fans, because I believe fans will leave a tip based on the enjoyment and service I provide. I’m not scared of them getting a preview. It really is going to be a global village where a billion people have access to one artist and a billion people can leave a tip if they want to. It’s a radical democratization. Every artist has access to every fan and every fan has access to every artist, and the people who direct fans to those artists. People that give advice and technical value are the people we need. People crowding the distribution pipe and trying to ignore fans and artists have no value. This is a perfect system.“
