Why Does Courtney Love Hate The Muppets?

The story goes a little something like this; The sweet innocent puppets (I think they’re puppets?) er, Muppets do a movie in 2011. There is a scene in the movie where the silly Muppet gang fall into barber shop quartet-like mode and perform Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.

According to Courtney Love the Muppets “bastardize and “rape”  the good name and memory of one Mr. Kurt Cobain.  The use of Nirvana material was of course done without her permission.  You see, Courtney alone posses sole permission for use of any of her former husbands band material or so she thought.

But fear not mad  fans of Kermit & Miss Piggy cause there is a huge wrinkle in this story and it comes in the form of greed.  It appears Courtney sold off some rights to the ol’ Nirvana library to not one, but two companies.  Not only did one of the companies approve the use of Teen Spirit in the Muppet’s movie, but they also added permission from the two surviving members of Nirvana Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. Here’s another kick to Courtney’s man-like crotch….Dave is even in the movie! HA!

If  you start feeling even slightly bad for Courtney remember; a chunk of the profits from songs in the catalog will always go to Courtney and her daughter, Frances Bean.
