Kurt Cobain Guitar Hero fiasco

Posted September 10th, 2009 by eric

Wow. This is so bad I don’t even know what to say. Everett True does, though. And he did rather succinctly. Courtney Love did not take kindly to his further disgust on Twitter. Gold and hilarity both ensue.

Oh, and I just got an email from Nasty Little Man owner, Steve Martin:

“Activision is responding to queries regarding the usage of Kurt Cobain’s likeness in Guitar Hero 5 with the following statement “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.”

Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, the two surviving members of Nirvana, have no say whatsoever in the usage of Kurt Cobain’s likeness.”

I dare say the ball’s in Courtney’s court now.
