Courtney Love to Sue Activision Over Cobain Guitar Hero Appearance
Written Thursday, September 10, 2009 By Dan WebbView author's profile
a few a lot of unhappy people when Kurt Cobain was announced as a playable character in Guitar Hero 5. Sure, there were a lot of happy people because "ZOMG, it's Cobain!!1!," but there were a lot that thought it went against what Kurt Cobain the man stood for. Apparently Courtney Love was one of those people. We just presumed she was on board.
Love recently went on a bit of a rampage over Twitter discussing the whole situation. Here are a couple of - unedited - tweets from her:
"For the record this Guitar Hero shit is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction."
"WE are going to sue the shit out of ACtivision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises"
Whatever happens from here on out, it should be an entertaining series of events. We find it hard to believe though that Activision would just do this without the proper authorisation. Either way, we'll surely find out over the coming weeks as this one unfolds.
