We'd expect this from Courtney, but not Dave!!!
Gaming company Activision has announced that Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain will make a posthumous appearance as a playable character on Guitar Hero 5.
In order to get the rights to the two playable Nirvana songs, Smells Like Teen Spirit and Lithium, the company had to get approval from Kurt's
crazy ass widow, Courtney Love, former drummer for the band, Dave Grohl and Universal Publishing.
Are Foo Fighters doing so terrible that Grohl needs the $$$$$?!
After Cobain's suicide in 1994, the singer blamed the repercussions of fame for his depression in a final note addressed to fans.
"Smells Like Teen Spirit is a song that we’ve had at the top of our wish list ever since I came to Guitar Hero,” said Activision’s Vice President of Music Affairs, Tim Riley. “Then after three years of working with the different parties, it was like the perfect storm.”
And to make matters worse, Courtney supplied the company with footage and photos, along with picking wardrobe and hairstyle, resulting in a "Teen Spirit" look.
Promoting everything he was against post-mortem?!
What a way to be remembered!!!
