Courtney Love is ranting and raving again.
She believes that Kermit the Frog and his gang of Muppet friends absolutely "raped" the memory of her ex-husband Kurt Cobain by covering the Nirvana song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in their 2011 movie ... without her permission.
The Muppets also released this awesome music video for it:
Courtney says she has the power to approve or nix all use of Kurt's music for commercial purposes, and she never agreed to let the Muppets release the song.
Never mind that she sold half the rights to Kurt's music to a company called Primary Wave Music ... along with exclusive right to distribute Nirvana's catalog.
As far as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" goes, not only did Primary Wave green light The Muppets use, they got permission from the two surviving Nirvana members.Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were both on board ... Dave is even in the movie briefly. Also, a portion of all profits from the song's use go to Kurt's daughter.
In short ... what is Courtney Love ranting about this for?!
Oh, right, she's insane.
