Courtney Love Plans "To Sue The Sh*t Out Of Activision"
Wake Up Courtney! Time To Go To Court!
Just the name conjures up the feeling of Ewww.
Courtney has her knickers in a bunch (when are they not in a bunch?) over the way Activision used ex hubby Kurt Cobain's image in Guitar Hero 5.
The agreement was to supposedly have Cobain sing only two songs in the game, which of couse incuded "Smells Like Teen Spirit". But Cobain's character in the game is an unlockable character.
Cobain Ala Activision
For all you non gamers out there, an unlockable character means the gamer can make the image do other things. Like sing other performer's songs.
So Love and former Nirvana band mates, David Grohl and Krist Novoselic, were not too tickled when they found out that Cobain is singing songs by Jon Bon Jovi and Bush in the game. (the band Bush that is, not Dubya, although that would be a riot)
Ex Nirvana band members were quoted about their dismay:
"While we were aware of Kurt's image being used with two Nirvana songs, we didn't know players have the ability to unlock the character," they said.
"This feature allows the character to be used with any kind of song the layer wants. We urge Activision to do the right thing in 're-locking' Kurt's character so that this won't continue in the future."
Courtney called the avatar "vile" and "necrophilic" and Twittered:
" This Guitar Hero shit is breach of contract. I think Kurt would despise this game alone let alone this avatar.. We are going to sue the shit out of Activison"
When it comes to vile and necrophilic. Ms Love takes the cake.
We all know how vile she can be. And someone would have to be into necrophilia to be attracted to her these days.
As of late, Love has been looking mighty bad. The recent photo below, shows her beyond scrawny and way up there on the "Ewwww" scale.
Love Looking Like Death Warmed Over
I think it's pretty cool that Activision agreed to include Cobain in their game at all. Love and ex band members should be thankful that Activision is keeping his memory and Nirvana's music alive.
The ex band members are asking Activision to come up with a patch, so Cobain's character stays locked. Fair enough, but a computer geek friend told me it can't be done once the game is out. Don't know if this is totally correct.Continued on the next page
