Courtney Love single

Single review: Courtney Love – ‘You Know My Name’

Well, yes, Love, we do know your name.

Here she sounds like Deborah Harry singing over a relentless metal guitar riff that a teenage band would thrust out in the hope of breaking onto the scene. ‘You Know My Name’ certainly ticks all the expected boxes – screaming vocals, heavy guitar – and the chorus is pretty catchy if it wasn’t for the weird stutter-effect.

Moments such as the overly shouty parts damage what is actually a decent song for straggling between pop and heavier rock.

Definitely the curates egg of songs, with a strong centre but a few frayed edges.
Buy: You Know My Name
