[pitchfork.com] Just when you thought Kurt Cobain's private musings had been completely and totally pillaged, here comes a newly unearthed, undated letter that finds the late icon railing against MTV in no uncertain terms. (Via the Daily Swarm.)
The missive is currently up for sale at Julien's Auctions (current high bid: $2,250) and reads: "Dear Empty TV/ the entity of all Corporate /GODS /We will survive without you/ easily-- the/ old school is going/ DOWN FAST/ my lifes Dedication/ is Now to Do Nothing/ But SLAG something/ Kurdt Kobaineee professional Rock musician." (Julien's could not comment on how they came upon the letter.) See a picture of it HERE.
Too bad we can only dream about Kurt's "Jersey Shore" take down...
The letter is part of Julien's "Legends" auction, that also includes hand-written lyrics by Cobain featuring the lyric "I butt f**ked her till I cryed," as well as items from Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, and more.
