The 40 Most Ratchet Music Rumors

2. Courtney Love Killed Kurt Cobain

There are several theories surrounding the tragic 1994 shooting death of Nirvana lead Kurt Cobain-which has been officially ruled a suicide-each more ratchet than the next. One of the most persistent rumors is that his wife Courtney Love was the one who used a shotgun to off him. According to police reports there were no fingerprints found on the gun, but that fact hasn't stopped the speculation. A sketchy singer named Eldon Hoke come forward claiming that Love offered him $50,000 to kill her husband and make it look like a suicide. In 1996, Hoke passed a polygraph test, and then eight days after telling his story on film, Hoke was found dead in Riverside, California. Odd, to say the least. But Cobain reportedly had more than three times the lethal dose of heroin in his system when he was found. Some suggest that he attempted to kill himself with an overdose, failed, and then asked Love to finish the job. No evidence has been found to support any of these claims-all of which Love has vehemently denied.
