Courtney Love Is Not Happy About Kurt Cobain’s Starring Role In “Guitar Hero” Either

Were you kind of cheesed off when you found out that the Kurt Cobain avatar in the forthcoming installment of Guitar Hero would be able to sing songs by the likes of Bon Jovi and Bush? Well, it turns out that Kurt’s widow Courtney Love is none too pleased about the development either, as evidenced by a string of Tweets she sent earlier today that complained about this appropriation of her husband’s license. It all started when rock journo Everett True got cranky about the Kurt-Guitar Hero synergy on his blog a few hours ago, calling Love and Dave Grohl—who he blamed for this fully—“Fucking corporate cock-sucking memory-destroying fret-wanking MTV-supporting fame-chasing money-grabbing grave-turning publicity-loving vacuous spoiled jaded cunting rock whores.”. He mentioned Love by tweet-ID while linking to this blog post on Twitter, and she fired back over a series of 140-character missives:

when did @everetttrue get bitter, i own my rage but im not yet bitter, and if you think for one second from the lunchbox and now this..NO

the goddammed Lunchbox was it for me i get crucified over Converse shoes i didnt approve and stood it, then spy a lunchbox and nowGHERO?NO!!

btw @everetttrue Jack fucking White your personal god is doing Ghero, do you think they told me that this mfucking avatar’s(badenuff)”featur

yeah Jack WHite,Dylan,Petty,Kings of Leon, i dragged my ass and never signed of on the avatar, let alone this fucking”feature”i have NO say

correction i do have say, theres been 4 breaches of a very strict contract, eg i was forced by lying bankerlawyers to sell some publishing,

wich forces me to lose some power, the loser bully who put money in the bank commissioned illegally a child and then stole every pennydid it

and @everetttrue he did it in breach of contract if you had listened to my ranting raving “bizarre”etc youd see that i speak only the truth

There were also a few gratuitous Dave Grohl insults, just ’cause. I guess what she’s trying to say is that she didn’t sign off on this, and her being crucified in the blogosphere is off the mark? Let’s see what the folks at CLTranslated think:

i may have been forced by some lying lawyers to sell some publishing, but i never signed off on this guitar hero thing. breach of contract!
