Activision has put Kurt Cobain in some rather unsightly poses in “Guitar Hero 5” and he looks pretty silly. Ever thought Kurt would be jamming out to “You Give Love A Bad Name” by Bon Jovi? How about rapping along to Public Enemy’s “Bring The Noise”? Kurt was also seen getting up close to sing Megadeth’s “Sweating Bullets”. While all are pretty decent songs, should Kurt’s image be used like this?
The video game makers have really done a number on Kurt and he is probably turning over in his grave as I write this.
This would be something that I would normally blame Courtney Love for. She’s soldhimout before, so this wouldn’t be the first time.
To her credit, she’s threatening Activision with legal action. She tweeted, “and you wonder about Guitar Hero 5 disgusted? welcome to my NIGHTMARE. yeah well sue activision this is disgusting, but theres alot MORE.”
This isn’t the first time she has acted all surprised and furious when his image was used. Maybe she’s deflecting any blame on purpose? Maybe she just doesn’t want to look like a sellout?
Check out the video to see the raping of a legend:
She signed off on the avatar and now she acts like she hates it. She did the same thing with the Kurt Cobain Doc Martens ad.
