No, probably not, most likely with his beaten Fender Mustang, though he was effective with both

From a purely non-metal standpoint, Cobain was a good songwriter, always liked his semi-abstract lyrics.

Don't know what Kurt or George Harrison and John Lennon would think of being in these games --from what I understand they all had a decent sense of humor though.

I bet Cobain would have done everything he could have to stay away from things like this. It´s horrible what the are doing to his legacy. Who´s got the control over decisions like this? Courtney? Nirvana´s ex-management? Dave and Kris? That´s the real question, right?

I´m an all around music fan, and what they are doing with legends like Miles Davis and Hendrix is just plain disgusting. There´s a new re-re-release every two years or so with a few more unreleased tracks, most of which should have remained unreleased.
I absolutely hate the "Experience Hendrix" organization and what they are doing to Jimi´s legacy. With Miles Davis it´s understandable cos it´s Columbia records = Sony, which should say it all (it´s equally as disgusting nevertheless)

Looks like now we have another "legend" in Cobain, and everything related to him must have a price tag to it, every note he recorded has to be released. I´m suprised they haven´t dug up his body so they could sell his bones one by one
Hey, thats what the topic here is : Grave robbing. And it makes me sick

Cobain hated being in the limelight. Rock stardom did not work for him at all. I can't see him being too impressed by this - though he might've enjoyed the irony.
