It's what Kurt really would have wanted; or at least what Jon Bon Jovi would have wanted

No, really, there was a line in the suicide note which said "my only regret is that I die before I get the chance to take part in a tribute to Bon Jovi; if only there was still a way". Genuine fact:

Everett True responds to this delightful desecration:

Um. Grohl and Love sanctioned this one for the new Guitar Hero. So respect due to Grohl and Love then. Fucking corporate cock-sucking memory-destroying fret-wanking MTV-supporting fame-chasing money-grabbing grave-turning publicity-loving vacuous spoiled jaded cunting rock whores.

Apart from the question of whether it should have been attempted at all, there's a wider question of if the people who made this confused Kurt Cobain with Fred Durst.

That noise? That's Yoko ringing up the Rock Band people with a great idea for next year...

Is that a bad thing? I'm betting it beats being a journalist with a folky beard. Plus, is he bald? He looks bald.

Kurt was very against double tracking his vocals - so uncool and not at all credible - until Butch Vig told him John Lennon did it, then he was all for it. So much for artistic conviction vs commercial accessibility. I think Jon Bon Jovi also double-tracked his vocals.

Cobain, of course, was so anti-MTV that he, erm, recorded an album for their 'Unplugged' series. Probably bringing down the system from within, eh Everett?
