Activision rapes corpse of Kurt Cobain.

I refuse to post a pic of Kurt in the New Guitar Hero 5.. so here is an LOLcat rocking out. 

 

Activision was able to purchase the likeness of Kurt Cobainfor use in Guitar Hero5, probably from a coke induced Courtney Love… who probably sold Kurt’s likeness for another bag of coke.

 

So, for everyone planning to buy this game in the near future.. good for you.

 

Personally, while I wasn’t a big fan of Nirvana.  I knew Kurt Cobain wouldn’t be cool with this and he fought against his music and such being used for… well, basically this type of thing.  The fact that Activision even went asking shows me that they are not in this for spreading music or anything, they are in this to make money.  First it was Jimi Hendrix, then Johnny Cash (who I kindof think he’d say no, but I’m not sure).  and Now Kurt Cobain. (I know for damn sure he wouldn’t allow it.) 

 

So, thhank you Activision, for just cementing my beliefs that you’re in the music gaming business the same way your in the WW2 gaming business.  because right now, they print money.

  1. Are you saying your distaste for World War 2 has kept you from enjoying some of the better games that take place during that era? In a counter-argument I would have to say that I have learned more about World War 2 from the battles I have replayed in video games, than I ever did in school. Perhaps a line drawn more towards educating and less towards exploitation would be in order.

  2. Not a Bad Counter-Argument. And while you can gleam some true information from war games, I can’t see learning anything about Kurt Cobain while he is singing along to David Bowie’s “Fame”.

    Also, I actually do have some issue with some war games. I wasn’t happy about World at War, but wasn’t put off by it enough to not snag it on sale… and then mostly play the Zombie stuff. lol.

    I personally feel Activisions actions are insensitive to the person they are depicting. I really don’t think Cobain would want his image doing other peoples songs.
