If you have not heard already, Kurt Cobain has been recreated on 'Guitar Hero 5.' Former Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl (as well as countless fans) have already made their disapproval known about a Kurt Cobain avatar on 'Guitar Hero 5.' Courtney Love nearly blew the Twitter bird off its tree with her constant complaints.

Now Jon Bon Jovi has sided with the protesters. In a statement about the Guitar Hero likeness the rocker said, “I don’t know that I would have wanted it either…to hear someone else’s voice coming out of a cartoon version of me? I don’t know. It sounds a little forced.” Stats for Unlikely Media Protests Trending: Older & Chilly
