    Ouch. Sounds like someone doesn't like barbershop quartet.

    Sounds like somebody's sense of humor needs a tuneup.

    (I never did get why SLTS is supposed to be such a fantastic song anyway. I always found it nonsensical and grating. Oh well.)

    Are you sure that Courtney Love is really mad that Miss Poogy is a billion times more sexually appealing than her?

    There are no bounds to my hatred of Courtney... I kinda blame her for Cobain's death. I'm sure someone's going to have a beef with me saying that, but I never liked her.

    Sounds like she doesn't technically own the song anymore, so tough cookies, lady! I'm sorry but I'm sick of train wreck celebrities getting so much undeserved attention. It only makes them worse.

    Kurt Cobain loved Weird Al's version and video of the song. There's no doubt he would have been wild about this too! Courtney cashed-in and sold her rights a long time ago. That's probably what she's bitter about. And riding someone else's wave of popularity is something that's not entirely foreign to her. :o

    Forget her! Leave The Muppets alone! That's really sad your going after The Muppets over a song. She must be desperate for money. :p

    Courtney Love is just angry because Janice is a better guitar player than she is.

    But seriously, this is rather silly. She didn't write "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and she sold her share of Kurt's royalties awhile back, so tough luck. Plus I think society needs to have a discussion about when it's appropriate to use the word "rape" and when it's not. Hint: this is not an appropriate usage of it.

    I'm pretty sure Dave Grohl co-wrote the song, and he's in the film. So, who cares what some washed up crack addict has to say?

    Yeah, I hate this assumption because some celebrity died, they somehow became the most humorless people in the world when they were alive.

    Yet... I've recounted the story of Elvis, his family, Viva Las Vegas, and a certain Pharmaceutical company several times when it comes to music rights, so there's always the problem of music rights holders going over the heads of the actual family. That IS a problem.

    Yeah, I was about to say this myself...He was totally into it! I think I read somewhere that he loves that scene as well as the scene he's in himself (although I could be wrong...)

    Its a shame that Courtney has no 'Love' for the Muppets, especially as its only because of them that I have started listening to the real version of that song!

    Just the title of this thread made me laugh. Courtney, Courtney. How can you expect anyone to take you seriously if you go around saying you're mad at the Muppets? MAD at the MUPPETS. I mean, c'mon.

    Yeah these people in the media picking on the new Muppet movie really need to realize they're only embarrassing themselves, lol.

    The thing that I find amazing about it is that now "Muppets" has become a new 'important word to use in interviews' in the same way that Gaga used to be. People use it for buzz-sake.

    She and her daughter actually got a portion of the royalties, so I don't really see what her problem is unless she wanted ALL the royalties but I think that they should split the money between her and her crack dealers. That's right, I said it.

    This is a very good point.... lately it seems that everyone want to have themselves associated with the Muppets. Lindsey Lohan says she wants to be in the sequel, Fox News makes their comments, now this. I guess there really is no such things as bad press.

    Walter: Gary, should I whistle "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
    Gary:*whisper*
    Walter:She's mad at WHAT?? -faints-

    At the risk of saying something that would tick someone off... Fox News does it with EVERYTHING... every movie, every TV show... they want to perpetuate the old "The Liberals are coming to get you Barbara" scare tactic.
