Accusing The Muppets Of "Raping The Memory Of Kurt Cobain"

Year: 2012

What happened? In their most recent movie, The Muppets cover Nirvana's classic hit, "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Apparently Courtney Love was less than impressed. She claimed that she never gave permission for them to use the song, but then it was revealed later that the company Primary Wave had the rights to distribute it and they approved the use. Not only that, but surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic had also given the go-ahead. Nevertheless Courtney made her disappointment known, saying that the muppets had "raped" the memory of Kurt Cobain.
