According to several sources, a dispute has risen between the two
surviving Nirvana members, David Grohl and Krist Novoselic, and Kurt
Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, over the rights to old Nirvana recordings

of the song "You Know You're Right", a song peformed by Nirvana just
months before Cobain's suicide. Novoselic claims Love is fighting
the band to strengthen her own career, while Love claims she just
