Frankly, I think being able to make the Kurt Cobain character sing David Cassidy's "I Think I Love You" is a selling point for Guitar Hero 5.

From Econsultancy:

Kurt Cobain's Guitar Hero avatar could give Activision a bad name

...This week, Activision released the new version of Guitar Hero, complete with a dirty but cute avatar of Kurt Cobain. While Nirvana purists may not appreciate seeing the band's deceased lead singer in digital. Insult was added to injury because Cobain's avatar is used differently than other famous characters in the game.

While gamers can use Cobain to sing his own songs, Activision has unlocked the character to allow him to sing any number of other genres, from rap to hair metal. And while it may be amusing to watch Cobain sing Flavor Flav songs, Courtney Love claims she did not grant Activision this right. Activision says they acted within their rights.
