Courtney Love is mad at Kurt Cobain being in the game. That wouldn't normally be anything out of the ordinary except she's the one that let them use his likeness in a signed statement. If you have never read her Twitter messages before, sit back and enjoy. They are a treat.

"and you wonder about Guitar Hero 5 disgusted? welcome to my NIGHTMARE. yeah well sue activision this is disgusting, but theres alot MORE"

That's just one of the tons of messages that Courtney Love has posted on Twitter, and one of several that "discusses" the appearance of her deceased husband, Kurt Cobain, in Activision's Guitar Hero 5. Here's another:

"now theyre just LIQUIDATING kurt and IM THE DEVIL? I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH GUITAR HERO I LOATHE IT AND FIND IT ODIOUS KURT WOULD HAVE TOO"

She also compared the Foo Fighters to Creed and Nickelback in there, somewhere, but let's try to stay focused. Here are a few more:

"ucking nmegafraud and youve got to show for it Kurt LUNCHBOXES< CONVERESE SNEAKERS AND ACTIVISION SMUGLY BOASTING OF RAPE"

"BRAGGING about this insane thing, fucking RECALLL and proper PR on this now. BRAGGING.activision gets DICK!"

"i cannot allow this to stand what next he fucking sings "Borderline" this is BANANAS!!Lunchboxes?fucking GUITARHERO?NOTtaking it"

Love goes on to claim (in her own special way) that her only interaction with the project was a request to see a better-looking avatar, something she says was just a form of dragging her feet on something she had no intention of ever approving. But apparently she isn't the only one with the ability to approve use of Cobain's likeness? We'll have to wait and see if anything concrete develops out of this, but I will say that I can't imagine Activision putting out a game like Guitar Hero 5 without ensuring that it was legally using all of the assets involved.

[uPDATE] Activision has responded to this mess, and in a statement given to Joystiq, states that Love gave permission to use Cobain's likeness in Guitar Hero 5 in a "written statement signed by Courtney Love." Yep, that sounds about right. So, what do you think? Think she didn't realize what she signed, or do you think she's acting faux-outraged now that there's been some uproar surrounding the way the game uses Cobain's likeness? One weird side-effect of all this is that it really makes me want to play some Guitar Hero 5. So I'm going to do that.
