Courtney Love

"Not Amused"

by Sir Paul & Nirvana

EXCLUSIVE

1212_courtney_love_paul-mccartney_gettyWhen Nirvana reunites tonight in NYC -- with Sir Paul McCartney replacing Kurt Cobain on vocals -- Courtney Love won't be cheering ... she'll be yelling obscenities, because she's pissed about the gig.

Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic are playing at the 12-12-12 benefit concert at Madison Square Garden -- their first show together in 20 years -- but Cobain's widow tells TMZ she is "not amused" about Paul's involvement.

Courtney is clearly more of a Lennon fan, than McCartney because she added ... "Look, if John were alive it would be cool."

Love is also upset at Krist and Dave for calling tonight's show a Nirvana reunion because she says Kurt was the heart and soul of the legendary band.

For the record ... Sir Paul and the guys will be playing a brand new song they wrote together. It's unclear if they will cover classic Nirvana songs.

You can hate Courtney all you want, but she's right. I mean, call her names and whatever you like but she married him, she knew him the best so I think she has every right to be upset, plus she's not 'causing a ruckus' this is pretty mild for CL. Plus, Macca fronting Nirvana? Don't make me laugh. And then weep at the corporate sell outs the remaining members have become.
Kurt's sure to be rolling in his grave.

That bitch is the reason Kurt Cobain killed himself. No talent c*** that used him to try to further her pathetic excuse for a music career.

Courtney needs to keep her filthy mouth shut. She wasn't in Nirvana and should have no say what so ever in what the other two members do. She's probably the reason Kurt killed himself and it sickens me whenever she speaks about him or Nirvana. Even her own daughter wants nothing to do with her, that right there should tell everyone how truly delusional she is.

Unfortunately Nirvana died April 1994. Reunion not possible. Not in this lifetime anyway. Horrible to even use the word. Sickening. Leave Courtney alone.

I have nothing against McCartney.Glad he love animals, speaks well of him, but...It's not a reunion.It's Paul singing with Cobain's former band mates.
