cobain pumps sounds cheesey if i might say. do believe cobain had more taste than too put his name on shoes. i think i'll keep my old chucks.

I bet the kids who buy these think heart shaped box was the best nirvana song ever. be an interesting poll wouldn't it.

Haha~~! Ah I'm sure Kurt's laughing his ass off.

But we saw this coming, I mean they have "action figures" of the guy~~

So shoes were just the next step.

Can't wait 'til they come out with the
"Kurt Cobain Torn Jeans and Flannel wear." Lol.

I got themand no, Heart Shaped Box wasn't the best Nirvana song. You'd think that Smells Like Teen Spirit would be a 'poser' Nirvana song huh?
So stfu, they're amazing.

Courtney said that if she had to lisense Kurt's songs in commercials to sell soda, she'd do it. And as crass as that is, I'm sure Kurt would approve of it, as long as it helps support Frances or give her extra money, even if it's to buy all the designer stuff she likes.

Kurt did love Frances but I am sure he would not be stuck in that situation

Who dropped you on your head?

Okay first off, he's got a wife and daughter.

Second, bank cards stop working and need to be renewed. I doubt his is still active after 11+ years.

this is quite an outrage i think cobain would be turning in his grave if he found out about this this is not what he would have liked...im sure.....yes he loved fances but i dont think he would sink so low as to sell his name and image for sneakers....even if they were the ones he did wear....converse are the best but beside the point.....Cobain wasn't a sellout he didn't want to be famous he just wanted to play music and somehow he became famous and he couldn't stop it....he was stuck in the limelight.....maybe Courtney killed him....maybe he cracked under the limelight and ended it himself....we should remember him for all his contributions to music and not for some god damned shoe....he was a great singer and writer.....Courtney love is a crack-whore-sellout-c*** who should have nothing to do with Kurt's estate or memory.......and on a different topic i heard someone mention favorite nirvana songs....i like to think the stuff off of bleach was some of the best and some of the unreleased stuff in the box
