Honestly, I know I’m swinging an axe here, but ever since I saw that his skanky wife twittered that she was going to sue Activision over his character in GH5, I can’t even play the game without getting pissed. (I just got done playing the game for a couple of songs and had to remove his character cuz it kept pissing me off.)
“WE are going to sue the shit out of ACtivision we being the Trust the Estate the LLC the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises.” (sic)
I think Cobain’s come to represent everything I despise. His fans play Youtube videos of his GH5 character playing “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi and marvel at the irony of how Activision could do such a thing when he called Bon Jovi “evil”…
Granted, Bon Jovi is cheese, but is he truly evil? I mean the dude supported the following charities:
* BID 2 BEAT AIDS
* Children Affected by AIDS Foundation
* Dream Foundation
* Elevate Hope Foundation
* Habitat For Humanity
* Hannah and Friends
* HELP USA
* Keep Memory Alive
* Live Earth
* Love Our Children USA
* Memorial Sloan-Kettering
* Musicians on Call
* Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation
* Project HOME
* Stand Up For A Cure
* Stop Global Warming
* Valerie Fund
Yup, nothing more evil than that, Kurt.
I don’t listen to the Bon Jovi’s music, but I’ll admit, charity wise, Bon Jovi is far from evil, and in fact is pretty cool.
Whereas Googling “Kurt Cobain charity” brings up this:
Rock offspring Frances Bean Cobain stunned train passengers after launching into a vicious tirade when her travel plans to New York derailed – because she refused to pay for a reservation.
None the less, was Cobain really in a position to pronounce people good and evil?
Is he really worth all this hero worship? Is GH5 really such a travesty when you can do the same exact thing with “characters” Johnny Cash, and Carlos Santana? How come their fans aren’t freaking out? (Johnny Cash in particular, to me, has much more street cred than Cobain will ever have…. the dude actually served time in jail a time or two, not just ‘the jail of his mind’ like Cobain.)
Even Cobain’s supposedly progressive “anti-homophobic” stances of wearing a dress during his MTV Headbangers Ball appearance and in the video for “In Bloom” pale in comparison to the stances taken by Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes in Too Wong Foo who truly performed “in drag” – and, seriously, I have no doubt that in his heyday, prior to their appearances in that movie, Cobain also would have lumped Swayze and Snipes into the same categories that he did Bon Jovi…
Cobain takes anti-homophobic stance in dress – fails miserably as he merely looks like the frat-boys that he despises.
Swayze and Snipes show Cobain how to take an anti-homophobic stance in a dress and succeed. Cobain pronounces Dirty Dancing “evil”.
I find Cobain’s world a sad world based on stereotypes – a very closed-minded world that he truly thought was open. And there is the crux; It’s one thing to be merely closed-minded, but even worse are those that, like Cobain, proclaim themselves open-minded and then proceed to use their supposed “open-minded” liberalism to judge everyone and everything around them that doesn’t conform to their worldview. In light of this, as of late, I find his music shallow and immature – that’s not to say I don’t recognize his poetic talent – just that it was and is shallow and immature – and to paint him as messianic is just mis-guided at best.
Funny, even after all this ruckus, Teen Spirit was just released for download in Rock Band two weeks ago. So much for street cred. Love and Grohl jumped on the music game bandwagon by the second Guitar Hero game and even made songs available on the first Rock Band game. With the release of Guitar Hero 5 and its inclusion of Nirvana’s biggest hit, Teen Spirit, every single charting hit by Nirvana is in one of these games. Interestingly, now that their are no songs left to sell, Courtney decides to bite the hand that feeds.
God I hate Kurt Cobain, Nirvana and Courtney Love – and Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters are right on their tail.
Lesson to be garnered from this post:
Bon Jovi = evil, evil, evil loser
Kurt Cobain = totally awesome, non-homophobe, open-minded, father-of-the-year-1994, WINNER!
Total loser Bon Jovi builds 6 houses with Habitat for Humanity. LOSER!
Awesome Winner Cobain succeeds in having 15 million boys and girls cry in front of their tv’s for 24 hours straight in April of 1994! WINNER! – And so are those who sat crying in front of thier tvs!
