The new Guitar Hero game, which incredibly foolishly features an avatar of Kurt Cobain in a green cardigan doing things Kurt Cobain would never have done, is causing quite the ruckus. Actually, in it he does things no one wearing a green cardigan would ever do, like sing "You Give Love a Bad Name" while pointing at the crowd. It's pretty damn disgusting.
Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have released a statement disapproving of Activision (the company that makes Guitar Hero) for using Cobain in its newest game, and Courtney Love is livid. Like so many these days, she's expressing her frustration via Twitter, e.g. "Disgusted? Welcome to my NIGHTMARE. [Y]eah we[']ll sue [A]ctivision this is disgusting."
Activision, however, claims that Courtney Love agreed to everything, and cashed a big check for the right to have Kurt Cobain rap in front of a bikini-clad bass player.
So, it's a megacorporation's word versus someone known for recklessness and instability. Who do you believe?
