Watch Courtney Love’s Raw Cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’
Courtney Love performed a raw, ferocious cover of Radiohead‘s “Creep” at a Linda Perry-hosted concert held in Los Angeles Tuesday night honoring the upcoming film Freeheld. “I feel like I’m on American Idol or something,” Love said before launching into a faithful rendition of the Pablo Honey track, Billboard reports. However, on the song’s bridge, Love stamps her own trademark snarl on the cover.
It was a night of unlikely covers at the Perry bash as Christina Aguilera delivered her version of John Lennon‘s “Mother” at the party. The Plastic Ono Band song has actually been in Aguilera’s repertoire since 2007, when she covered the track for the Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur benefit tribute album.
The Freeheld show also featured actress Juliette Lewis trying her hand at AC/DC’s “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” and the Cult’s Ian Astbury covering David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” and the Doors’ “Break On Through.”
