Courtney Love to Exact her Revenge on Activision

1 min read


Guitar Hero 5 is available to our friends in the northern Hemisphere – and there’s been a lot of controversy over the way that the unlockable deceased musicians in the game, Kurt Cobain and Johnny Cash, have been handled. Forgoing the reverence and respect employed by Harmonix with their digital recreation of The Beatles, Neversoft’s execution has been tawdry, gaudy and in general poor taste.

People are pissed. Included in those people is Cobain’s widow Courtney Love – who now intends to sue Activision. According to Love “We are going to sue the shit out of Activision; ‘we’ being the Trust, the Estate, the LLC, the various LLCs, Cobain Enterprises … For the record, this Guitar Hero sh*t is breach of contract on a bully’s part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction."

She seems to have forgotten though that she signed off on the rights for Activision to use Cobain’s image. Well, either she’s forgotten she signed it off or she was too busy being a crackwh*re.

Hit the Jump to see what has people so infuriated.

You stay classy, Activision.

    I am confused…… What are people finding “dis-tasteful”?

    The fact that he is in the game…. Or the fact that he is singing a Bon Jovi song {Puke} ???

    I must say, having him rap and shit is actually quite strange.

    Whoever was in charge of ensuring his likeness ws true and accurate should be shot through the heart.

    I understand where Courtney is coming from but she should have insisted on seeing the final product before shipping to make sure it was accurate. There isn’t much that can be done now.

    Yeah he looks nothing like KC… the avatar still have a face to begin with… :devil:

    Having said that. When you unlock him, he does do a nice entrance sings ‘smell like teen spirit”.

    Made me happy. I use friend avatars for the rest of the band anyway.

    Firstly CrackW@#res are people too, but secondly and more importantly, Is kurt any real kind of draw card anyway? Also I’m suprissed it was ever agreed to in the first place, tool obviously saw this coming with GHWT hence they made sure not only that their songs used in the game had specific backrounds and video but they didnt eben have their likeness’s in the game at all. It almost screams of “oops maybe we rushed this a bit”
