Her dad was a legendary musician, but Frances Bean Cobain is not a fan.

Come on. She was bound to shock us all at some point.

Frances Bean Cobain is the daughter of rock royalty. Her late father is Kurt Cobain, the legendary lead singer of Nirvana, and her mother the infamous Hole frontwoman Courtney Love.

But in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Frances Bean Cobain admitted, apparently with a grin,  “I don’t really like Nirvana that much.”

She made the admission as a documentary on her father is due to be released.

Kurt Cobain committed suicide on April 5, 1995 so Frances Bean never got to know her father and says it would have been awkward had she been a fan.

“I was around 15 when I realised he was inescapable. Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there’s my dad. He’s larger than life. And our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible . . . But he wasn’t. He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt,” she tells Rolling Stone.

But don’t worry grunge rock music fans, Frances Bean is still an indie music fan.

“I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre,” she said.

Although her father’s band doesn’t appeal to her on the whole, she does like a couple of his songs.

“‘Territorial Pissings’ is a fucking great song. And “Dumb” – I cry every time I hear that song. It’s a stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself. Of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation.”
