Rare home video of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, his then-wife Courtney Love and their infant daughter Frances Bean Cobain has surfaced online. In the footage,Cobain and Love sing "Stinking of You," an unreleased track.

The footage was originally part of the widely anticipated Patty Schemel documentary, "Hit So Hard," which has been showing at film festivals around the country.

In the clip, viewers get an intimate look at the tumultuous couple and their young daughter, as Cobain plays with young Frances throughout the video. It's a rare, happy look at the tormented artist and his family.

Sadly, Cobain would take his own life on April 5, 1994. Released in 1991, Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind has since sold over 10 million copies, and Cobain has been hailed as one of the pioneering voices of the '90s.

The relationship between Love and Frances Bean has been fraught, to say the least. Recently, Love ranted on her private Twitter account, telling her followers that she'd heard from her daughter's roommate and a driver that former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl had hit on and possibly slept with Frances.

The young Cobain then responded to her mother's allegations by releasing a statement to the media. "While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy," she said before adding, "Twitter should ban my mother."

Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson recently told Fuse TV that the Nirvana frontman had recorded multiple demos before his death in 1994. These demos have never been released.

"He was headed in a direction that was really cool," Erlandson said. "It would have been his 'White Album'. That's really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people ... I was really excited about some of the stuff he was working on. I got to see him play it in front of me. That's why I was really sad when he died. He was cut short. Who knows where this music would have gone?"
