Cobain Rocks New Shoes
Nirvana singer is back from the dead to advertise footwear and Courtney Love aint happy
Kurt Cobain is being used in adverts to sell shoes causing an almighty row to break out.
Goth footwear firm Dr Martens used an image of the dead Nirvana star in UK ads.
In the pic Kurt is seen in the clouds wearing the boots and draped in robes. This was never authorised by Cobains widow Courtney Love.
A representative of Loves said: "She thinks it's outrageous that a company is allowed to commercially gain from such a despicable use of her husband's picture.
The shoe firm has issued an apology: "We are really, really, really sorry," Dr. Martens CEO David Suddens told People.com. "We do think that it is offensive. We made a mistake.
The Nevermind grunge rocker killed himself with a shotgun in 1994.
Dr Martens are also using images of Clash frontman Joe Strummer and Joey Ramone to sell their products. We wonder how long it is till they are withdrawn.
