It turns out that Alex isn't the only person who's been a bit unnerved by Kurt Cobain's appearance in Guitar Hero 5
, as Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, is also a bit upset by it all - and she intends to do something about it.
While it isn't clear exactly what Courtney Love takes issue with in Guitar Hero 5
, she has indicated that she'll be taking legal action against Activision over Guitar Hero 5
, which features ex-Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain as a character.
"For the record this Guitar Hero s**t is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction,
" said Courtney Love via her official Twitter account

for our brief thoughts on the matter.
"WE are going to sue the s**t out of Activision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises,
" reaffirmed Courtney Love later.
Courtney's official twitter feed has since run into a very long, NSFW rant about the game, so check it out if you want the full skinny on the topic - there's simply too much swearing to justify replicating it all here.
