Courtney Love Slams Guitar Hero Over Kurt Cobain Sacrilege

September 10, 2009

As you may already know, Guitar Hero 5 features a playable Kurt Cobain avatar that has the Nirvana frontman pumping out jams by horrible bands like Bon Jovi. Now Courtney Love is officially pissed.

Courtney recently took to her Twitter page to cry foul on the so-called illegal use of her late husband’s image:

FOR THE RECORD I DID NOT APPROVE KURTS AVATAR FOR GUYITARHERO5. i think Kurt would despise this game alone let alone this avatar. WE are going to sue the shit out of ACtivision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises

Although according to Activision, Courtney has got things a little mixed up. The company has responded with a press release stating: "Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain's likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero® 5."

Courtney, of course, replied to this accusation with her classic drugged-out rage and some serious type-Os:

activision is fulllof s*** they have a a contcrct called a deal memo that said upon approvale they could use an avatar i approved i …and i never inteneded to aPPROVE this shit, they are doing a recall you can be sure o fthat. waita ew hours maybe tomorrow press and etc.

Mama needs to learn how to type. More to come, I’m sure.
