Love to "sue the s***" out of Activision

Furious at Cobain's GH5 resurrection.

Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love is furious at Activision about her dead husband's appearance in Guitar Hero 5, and is threatening to "sue the s***" out of the publisher.

On her Twitter, watched by Perez Hilton, she wrote: "For the record, this Guitar Hero s*** is breach of contract on a bully's part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction."

"We are going to sue the s*** out of Activision. We being the Trust, the Estate, the LLC, the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises."

It allegedly took three years of negotiations to secure Cobain as a playable character in Guitar Hero 5 - a move that Courtney Love approved and even helped integrate into the game.

There has been controversy over his inclusion, however, after it was discovered his Avatar could be used to perform any song - not just Nirvana's - once unlocked.

Guitar Hero 5 is due out here tomorrow on PS3, PS2, Wii and Xbox 360.
