The feud between Axl Rose and Nirvana at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards began with a taunt from everyone’s favorite hot mess, Courtney Love. According to Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Axl Rose was walking past Love, Kurt Cobain and the couple’s baby daughter when the Hole frontwoman yelled, “Axl, Axl — you’re the godfather!”

Rose then reportedly told Cobain to keep his woman in line, which Cobain jokingly repeated to his wife. The feud between Rose and Nirvana became famous as drummer Dave Grohl began to exclaim, “Where’s Axl? Where’s Axl? Hi, Axl! Hi, Axl!” after Nirvana’s landmark performance of ‘Lithium’ at the awards show.
