Kurt Cobain mumbles way through songs in Guitar Hero


Activision and Neversoft didn't just secure the rights to two tracks from Nirvana's Nevermind not found in competing games (a live version of "Lithium" and the studio cut of "Smells Like Teen Spirit") for Guitar Hero 5. They went a step further. They got the man himself, Kurt Cobain. 
Well, not the actual Kurt Cobain. The singer/guitarist/songwriter really had nothin to do with this, we'd imagine. But here's the deal -- he's been digitized and can be unlocked in Guitar Hero 5. The question is, of course, were he alive today, would he approve?
We'd like to hope that someone who knew him well gave the greenlight on this one. Maybe Courtney Love pulled herself away from her MySpace blog long enough to incoherently mumble "Where do I sign?" See a video of him in action after the jump; do you think they nailed it? 
We'll have our full Guitar Hero 5 next week, on September 1, the day the game hits shelves.
