'Kurt Cobain would love Guitar Hero', says Courtney

Grunge star's widow sees the funny side as she steps up lawsuit

Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love has said that her husband would have seen the funny side over his avatar being able to sing pop songs in Guitar Hero.

However, the Hole singer isn't stepping down from her legal battle with Activision over the use of Cobain's image in the game.

She told NME: "What p**ses me off the most about it is I think Kurt would be fine with having five Kurt Cobains singing the (Spice Girls) song Wannabe, like, 'Tell me what you want, what you really really want.'... I think he'd find that really funny."

Love said she was backing up Gwen Stefani's fight against Activision. The publisher used a likeness of Stefani's group No Doubt in GH spin-off Band Hero.

Love added: "But at the same time it's gross what they did. Gwen (Stefani) started the lawsuit. I have really good lawyers now and will join that lawsuit. There was this grey area and they f**ked the lot of us. They didn't f**k Jack White, but they f**ked Gwen, f**ked Johnny Cash and f**ked Kurt... It's just gross. This is the rock 'n' roll business, this is what people do. They are sleazy; they do sleazy things."
