    Recently a new Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy documentary has been making the rounds. Entitled Soaked in Bleach, the film alleges that the Nirvana frontman did not commit suicide, but was rather murdered by his wife Courtney Love.

    During a recent fan Q&A, someone thought it might be a good idea to ask Billy Corgan his thoughts on the film. The Smashing Pumpkins frontman has been known to speak candidly on a variety of subjects — from the music industry’s downfall to Radiohead being the last band to do anything with guitar. But when it came to the topic of a murder conspiracy involving his one-time girlfriend, Corgan got defensive — and fast.

    “Are you legitimately asking me this question here?” Corgan asked, to which the fan responded, “If you care to answer it.” Corgan countered, “No I don’t care to answer because I think it’s — what does that have to do with me?” Watch the heated exchange below (via Alternative Nation).
