I don't think Kurt would approve of this.....

This offends me.

Everyone who knows anything about Nirvana or Kurt Cobain knows that he would be COMPLETELY AGAINST THIS.

I love Guitar Hero, but I won't be buying this game when it comes out.....strictly because of this.

Kurt's whole outlook on the world was fiercely anti-corporate and anti-mainstream, so to have his digitized face be paraded around in a game like this is nothing but disrespectful to the man and his legacy.

I know he killed himself, and that he supposedly gave up on everyone, but this is just a cruel slap in the face to everything he stood for.

I hate Courtney Love even more now for allowing this to happen, but what else can you expect from her? Shameless money-hungry devil woman.

I can't believe this actually bothers me as much as it does....maybe it's because I have read a lot of books about Nirvana and Kurt, and so to have the people at Activision completely disregard everything he stood for so easily and shamelessly is offensive to me and anyone who truly gives a crap about Kurt or Nirvana.

So yeah, I won't be buying Guitar Hero 5 because of this. Lame.

I'm on the fence about this. Love having Nirvana tunes in the game but not sure about his likeness. We asked our own Andy Stewart to sound off on the issue and he has a very different take. Let us know what you think!

I don’t think Kurt would give a shit

Adrian - thanks for taking the time to check out our site and drop a comment on my article. Good points from you as well; especially the one about Courtney...I'd like to think she respects his legacy more than she probably does, but you're probably more right than I am. You can't put too much faith in someone who has been out in public dressed as a duck, I suppose.

Take care.
