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.

I cannot believe some of these ignorant posts you naysayers are posting...You do know that without Paul McCartney there would have been no Nirvana? He is a rock god and anyone who knows music - real music - understands that. You should be so lucky to see this man perform live in your lifetime...

Ignore the talentless idiot maybe she'll go away. If it wasn't for Cobain no one would know who she is.

Never thought I'd ever say this but...Courtney Love is right! Cobain WAS the heart and soul of Nirvana and even Paul McCartney can't fill his shoes. Such a weird fit!

God she is a terrible person. Dave, Pat and Krist aren't replacing Cobain, this is a NEW song they wrote with Paul.

Besides, this is for CHARITY.

Wow; everyone dislikes Courtney but her thought is valid; Paul is money machine; John always about the music.

Exit 98. NJ with a touch of NYC. Don't use our stuff to support your new venture or ego, Paul McCartney.......or Jon. Courtney has her issues, as we all, but she really loved Kurt and it twists her to see other people gain off of her talented husband. Dave Grohl is a talent independent of Kurt.
Bottom line, Courtney has a right to be twisted. Jon
needs to really work on being more authentic and Dave Grohl has validated himself through Foo way beyond, yet always with gratitude to Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, his friend.

She doesn't have to be amused, since it has nothing to do. With her. She wasn't even invited.

What was amusing was how Springsteen couldn't keep a straight face while having to accompany Bon Jovi on one of his dumb songs. Of course the Jersey crowd ate it up. They were all yelling BRRUUUUUI!! When it was over, while Bon Dorky took 20 bows.
