Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain have topped a MAXIM BLENDER magazine poll of
the 50 Hottest Rock + Roll Couples.
The controversial twosome's three-year relationship created an endless
list of headlines, right up until Nirvana frontman Cobain's fatal suicide
attempt in 1994.
The American publication says of the pair, "They stirred up s**t like no
other rock couple before or since. The grunge BONNIE and CLYDE had it all -
talent, rebel glamour and balls of steel.
"Their marriage was rife with sex, drugs and, occasionally, rock + roll.
Oh, and guns. But mostly drugs."
Of those who made it into the top 10 of BLENDER'S POLL, only two of the
couples are still together - Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston and Chris Martin
and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Just missing the top 10 were Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, and Ben Affleck and
Jennifer Lopez, who sit in 11th and 12th place respectively.
DAVID and Victoria Beckham landed in 35th place, Elton John and DAVID
FURNISH in 37th, while Justin Timberlake's recent pairing with Cameron Diaz
scraped in at number 50.
The top 10 is as follows:
1. KURT COBAIN + COURTNEY LOVE
2. Tommy Lee + Pamela Anderson
3. P DIDDY + JENNIFER LOPEZ
4. Sean Penn + Madonna
5. John Lennon + Yoko Ono
6. BOBBY BROWN + WHITNEY HOUSTON
7. George Jones + Tammy Wynette
8. Axl Rose + Stephanie Seymour
9. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE + Britney Spears
10. CHRIS MARTIN + GWYNETH PALTROW
