Wanna See Kurt Cobain Sing Bon Jovi?

(antiMusic) Raise your hand: Who here thinks Kurt Cobain would approve of his likeness being used in a video game? Ok that has mixed results. What if that character sang a Bon Jovi song? Think he would like that much? Than this report from Blabbermouth will have spinning in his grave:

Not only has late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain made it into Guitar Hero 5 as a playable character, as previously reported, but apparently you can make his avatar play guitar right-handed and sing Bon Jovi's "You Give Love A Bad Name", along with songs from Megadeth, Public Enemy and Nirvana wannabes Bush (see video at full story link). A "highlight reel" of what you can do with the Cobain character in Career Mode was Posted online Tuesday (September 1), the same day that the game arrived in stores. In addition to the Cobain avatar, the NIRVANA songs "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Lithium" appear in a Guitar Hero game for the first time.

Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, played a major role in putting Cobain's image together for the game, Activision's Vice President of Music Affairs Tim Riley told RollingStone.com. It is not clear whether Love had any opinion on what the unlockable Cobain character could perform, or just took the money and ran.
