25 Jul 2013, 06:38 by scottdoesntknowIf you couldn't tell from my listening history which includes over 10,000 Hole plays, I'm a really big fan of Courtney Love. Like, a huge fan. I find her lyrics compelling and vivid, she's incredibly smart, and most of all, she's thick-skinned enough to give all of her detractors a "fuck you" and continue to do her thing. She's braved a lot of shit and been through horrible things, and the fact that she's even alive is a monumental accomplishment. She's an underdog, and she's inspiring. I never get tired of her or anything she's done.
I saw her once at Bumbershoot in 2010 when she was billing herself as "Hole", despite being the only original member, and that was a big deal for me, but the vibe wasn't totally right— I don't like festivals typically, so her show at the Moore Theatre was much more intimate and, more importantly, everyone in the audience was there for the same reason.
She came out after her opening act…

1) Live Through This (1994)
Most Hole fans will agree that this is the band's quintessential album; their "magnum opus", if you will, and they're probably right. In terms of chronology, the record works as a bridge between the band's noise rock beginnings and their more polished pop years, and serves up some of the greatest rock tracks of the decade. Courtney Love's lyrics are clever and intelligent, and her rhythm guitar serves as a solid backdrop for Eric Erlandson's skillful guitar work.
It's a strange album in the sense that it's mournfully quiet and slow at times (tracks like "Doll Parts" and "Softer, Softest" being prime examples), and before you know it you're getting gleefully punched in the face by songs like "Gutless", or "She Walks Over Me"— both of which contain punk riffs that would have given The Germs a run for their money.
