Courtney Love VS Activision

As many of you may know I’m the latest greatest most amazing thing in mankind’s history, Guitar hero 5 (I mean, come on. People wear t-shirts with that on! And they’re the coolest human beings alive) allows you to unlock a digital likeness of Kurt Cobain to make him sing like Bon Jovi for 3 minutes. Well, turns out that Courtney Love isn’t very pleased about this after Activision released a statement to fans saying they secured permission from his estate Mrs Love his back with this biting comment

FOR THE RECORD I DID NOT APPROVE KURTS AVATAR FOR GUYITARHERO5. i think Kurt would despise this game alone let alone this avatar,” and “WE are going to sue the shit out of ACtivision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises” (Via Sterogum Via Pitchfork to save some time) devastating, I think you’ll agree. I bet the makers of GUYITARHERO5 are in tears right now.

Naturally the makers of GUITAR HERO 5 (Check out that fucking spelling Courtney) hit back with an all together more measures, less capitalized response via a press release saying this: “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.”

Well, well. Who would have thought it. Courtney came back with THIS “activision is fulllof shit they have a a contcrct called a deal memo that said upon approvale they could use an avatar i approved i .,” and then saying “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.

Fear the power of Courtney Love, fear it!
