It's been a long time since I could say this but, fuck yeah Courtney Love!
Remember when I told you about Guitar Hero 5's special cameo from deceased Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain? And do you also remember how everyone immediately blamed Courtney for selling out to publisher Activision? If her Twitter account is to be believed, that's not how it went down.
"For the record this Guitar Hero shit is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction," the former Hole frontwoman wrote.
"WE are going to sue the shit out of ACtivision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises," she continued, before spending the next several entries responding to curious fans who shared her apparent rage at Activision's literal interpretation of Nirvana's "Rape Me."
Who knows how much any of this might be some sort of PR spin from a woman desperately clinging to the fading public perception that she still aspires to nostalgia-laced Grunge ideals, and how much of it is actual rage at a company screwing over the image of a man who was utterly terrified of exactly that happening to him and his creative works, but it's still nice to see Love go all bitchcakes on behalf of those of us who feel the same way.
Double points for Courtney if she does "sue the shit out of ACtivision" too. Frances Bean could use a totally sweet aircraft carrier.
