Mrs. Courtney Love Cobain kept it classy at Nirvana's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last Thursday.

"I have a big speech, but I'm not gonna say it," Love said. "We all start bands when we're kids and this is my family I'm looking at right now."

She later tweeted kind words to and about Krist Novelselic and a photo of the exact moment when the hatchet was buried between her and long-term adversary Dave Grohl...

Spice Girls Fan Art That Is Just Awful

Categories: Etsy

Media outlets were quick--perhaps a little too quick--to announce the Spice Girls would be touring with the Backstreet Boys this spring, but that is not entirely true. The Backstreet Boys will be embarking on a North American and Canadian tour with Avril Lavigne, but the Spice Girls aren't on the bill. Even if the Spice Girls agree to join, we suspect they will be Posh-less. Victoria Beckham shared these thoughts on the last Spice Girls reunion with Vogue Paris in December 2013:

"I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour. It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere."

Ouch. Who wouldn't want to be hanging out with girls you never seemed to fit in with?!

To make the disappointment of this announcement a little easier, we found some of the worst Spice Girls fan art on Etsy.

Beck Portraits, You Really Must Own

After a long hiatus, Beck has returned to the musical forefront with Morning Phase, a dreamy album that is swimming in accolades.

Fans need not anticipate another dearth of Beck tunes. According to Rolling Stone, Beck is already working on a followup album to Morning Phase that he hopes to release within the next year.

To celebrate the return of this folksy Los Angeles native, we've curated collection of fan art from etsy that proves either Beck is really easy to draw, or his fans are really talented. We're assuming it's the latter. You can catch Beck at Coachella this year or on his North American tour.

This archival print by PopMediaIllustrated (above) should be album art. The appearance, shape and texture of this print has 'limited edition vinyl' written all over it.

Spinal Tap Fan Art, You Really Must Own

Not to make you feel old, but This Is Spinal Tap, turned 30 this month. Spinal Tap is unarguably the most popular rockumentary/mockumentary film of all time. The cult classic proves two things: rockstars are predictable and Rob Reiner is a genius.

Truth in humor is what makes this film so enjoyable (and easy to relate to), just ask real rockstars what they think of the film. Jack Black cites Spinal Tap as the main inspiration for his band Tenacious D, and Billy Corgan calls the movie "prophetic" for all bands.

The movie and its characters were so true to life, that Jamie Lee Curtis pursued Christopher Guest after seeing a photo of him in character as Nigel in Rolling Stone. They couple wed at Rob Reiner's home in December of 1984 and remain married to this day.

To celebrate the majesty of rock and the fantasy of roll, we've collected the best Spinal Tap fan art on etsy:

Pharrell Williams Fan Art, You Really Must Own

We had nearly forgotten about Pharrell until he catapulted back into the music scene with the ultimate collaboration trifecta: 'Get Lucky', 'Blurred Lines' and 'Happy'. Now Pharrell is everywhere, and he's bringing his giant Mountie hat with him. We think he should have stopped short of collaborating with Future and Pusha T in 'Move That Dope', to avoid saturating the market and spreading himself too thin again.

To celebrate the recent release of Pharrell's long-awaited album, GIRL, we gathered the best Pharrell fan art from etsy and Society6. These artists would certainly be 'Happy' if you purchased their works:

Keep it classy with this print of Pharrell by by Gloria Chandler on Society6 (above).

Green Day Fan Art, You Really Must Own

Green Day's Dookie turned 20 years old last month. If that sentence sounds odd, it was intentional. Speaking about the name, Billie Joe Armstrong told Rolling Stone:

"Obviously, it was a stoner thing. It really was. We were smoking a lot of weed. 'Hey, man, wouldn't it be funny if...'

But I was thinking about that Sonic Youth record, Goo. When we gave the title to [cover artist] Richie Bucher, he was like, 'OK'. We get it back, and it's dogs exploding shit all over Berkeley. [Laughs] I don't know, man. It was one of those impulsive moments. And we were like, 'Fuck it'."

Dookie went on to produce five hit singles for the band: "Longview," "When I Come Around," "Basket Case," "Welcome to Paradise," and "She." The album also won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1995. Dookie is unarguably, the band's best-selling album, with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide. Not bad for an album named after a slang word for 'shit', written by a couple of punk stoners.

To celebrate Dookie's 20th year milestone, we've collected some of the best Green Day fan art on etsy.

My what green eyes you have, Billie Joe. This portrait by MaryAngelinaArtis (above) is painted on a vinyl record.

Rob 'Vanilla Ice' Van Winkle will receive Wellington, Florida's 'Outstanding Citizen of the Year' award on Wednesday, Feb 26.

Van Winkle earned this title for his "spirit of giving and dedication" to the town he calls home for more than 10 years.

Another noteworthy achievement is Van Winkle's new commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shapes. Van Winkle sings and dances to "Ninja Rap", a song he provided for the soundtrack of 1991's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 11: The Secret of the Ooze.

Tenacious D Fan Art, You Really Must Own

Tenacious D is the ultimate un-guilty pleasure. Their song lyrics are like humorous children's stories (for adults) set to rock music; which is fitting, because it was recently announced that Jack Black will be starring in a Goosebumps movie. (Yes, the series of scary children's novels by R.L. Stine).

And who doesn't love Black's partner-in-crime Kyle Gass? He's the only celebrity wearing socks and sandals court-side at the Lakers game. Together, these laissez-faire characters form the greatest parody band since Weird Al--and bonus--they're awesome musicians too.

We've collected some of the best Tenacious D fan art on etsy to satisfy your inner nerd-rocker:

Joan Jett has filed a cease and desist letter to the president and CEO of SeaWorld in Florida after learning her infamous "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" anthem is part of Seaworld's Shamu Rocks show.

Jett wrote:
"I was surprised and upset to see on YouTube that SeaWorld used I Love Rock 'n' Roll as the opening music for its cruel and abusive 'Shamu Rocks' show. I'm among the millions who saw Blackfish and am sickened that my music was blasted without my permission at sound-sensitive marine mammals."

Jett will be starring in (and is the executive producer of) Undateable John, a romantic comedy about a slacker surf instructor who meets a troubled love interest in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. The film stars Daryl Hannah, Tom Arnold and Shannen Doherty. A release date has not been published yet.

Jett will be a guest on The Queen Latifah Show this week, with an episode air date of February 17, 2014. In the meantime, we invite you to browse some of the best Joan Jett fan art on etsy:
