I'm betting that in the nine years since Jay-Z released "99 Problems," the number of his actual problems has dwindled. Courtney Love, on the other hand, has a whole mess of 'em. So, naturally, she performed an acoustic cover of Jay-Z's hit over the weekend at Sundance. Sure, acoustic hip-hop covers are pretty lame and usually performed by pop-punk bands of supposedly clever twerps (or Jonathan Coulton), but Love's version here is pretty tight. Plus, it's always a treat to see her when she's holding her own on a stage and reminding us how much of a bad ass she is.
