Courtney Love plans to sell most of the items which once belonged to her husband, former Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain.

Comparing her house to a "mausoleum," the 42-year-old rock singer says she plans to hold a charity auction. Love and Cobain wed in 1992 and later that year had a daughter, Frances Bean.

Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. Speaking to AOL Music, Love says "My daughter doesn't need to inherit a giant...bag full of flannel...shirts." She says Frances will get one of Cobain's sweaters, a guitar, and the lyrics to Nirvana's biggest hit, "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

AOL publicist Kurt Patat gave no date for the auction.
