Courtney Love Threatens to Sue over Kurt Cobain’s Guitar Hero Character

Commentary: The only real "problem" with the gaming Cobain virtual character might be that in the game, you can put him on stage with other bizarre CG characters and have him sing wimpy songs to where the visual result looks a little silly.  Other stars or look a-likes are in the game - the character itself is as tasteful as you can get for a computer generated image.  The furor appears to driven by a religiously saint-ified status given to the memory of Kurt by some, or a categorical distain for Courtney, or both.
