5 Times Courtney Love’s Musicianship Blew Us Away

5. “But Julian, I’m A Little Bit Older Than You”

Okay, so this is technically a Courtney Love solo song, but the story behind it’s too good to pass up. Allegedly about (the much younger) The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas. Rumor has it The Strokes’ song “Meet Me in the Bathroom” is about a similar, but different interaction with Love. “But Julian, I’m a Little Bit Older Than You” is, like so many other things Courtney Love has done, a subversion of your typical “kiss and tell” song. Not particularly complimentary of Casablancas, it’s a raunchy rock star romp that leaves the rest of us feeling a little bit like we walked into something we shouldn’t have.
