    Default Kurt Cobain fans furious over "tribute"

    Cobain fans furious over trainer 'tribute'

    Thursday, March 20 2008, 16:33 GMT
    By Beth Hilton, Entertainment Reporter

    Fans of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain are furious at the news that footwear firm Converse will sell a specially-designed trainer to "honour" their idol.

    The company announced this week that it will release a limited edition shoe bearing the rocker's signature, lyrics and diary entries.

    Cobain's widow Courtney Love has supported the new line, which is part of the manufacturer's 100th birthday celebrations.

    But fans have slammed the move on NME.com, with one saying: "This is disgusting, exploitative and goes against everything these artists stood for. Kurt Cobain should be remembered as a talented musician, not a brand."

    Another said: "This idea is more about boosting the brand image of Converse. This has nothing to do whatsoever with music. It goes against everything Nirvana, Joy Division and the Pistols stood for. It's simply corporate, marketed b*****ks."

    Actually, I agree with his fans. Kurt would be pissed about this, and the only reason Courtney Love is going for it is because she's broke (again) due to "identity theft."

    WHOA! WTF - branding Kurt's lyrics and name on a fucking shoe? I want to get my hands on a pair just to kick her in the ass with them for starters. What's next KC cigar boxes? I didn't think you could go any lower than skunt but once again she's proved me wrong. This makes me sick and very sad.

    oh get over it, he's been wormfood for 15 years and his music wasn't that great to begin with.

    He was just in the right place at the right time.

    Nirvana was the last band I liked when it came to new bands. Now I know nothing about new music. He was handsome for a few minutes.

    It took me a long time to realise but Nirvana already is a brand. In principle, buying Nirvana trainers isn't any different to buying a Nirvana t-shirt.

    Well it's just shoes. It's not like a Special Kurt Cobain Edition Winchester double action shotgun or anything.

    Loves it.

    I am so SICK of Nirvana. If I never, ever hear "All Apologies" or "Smells Like Teen Spirit" again, it will be too soon.

    Marrying that evil skank was the worst mistake Cobain ever made. He really must've had a death wish.
