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.

Cobain's role as a character in the game means that his model can be used for a variety of different songs and animations, which more than a few people have described as being a bit strange and uncomfortable to watch - though you can listed to the official bit-tech and Custom PC Gaming Podcast 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.
