they definatly wouldn't have wanted to be a part of this, especially since they were all so anti-corporate.


looks like courtney love needed some more money

agreed, y'all. not that i really feel attached to these guys, but i'm amazed at my ability to still be amazed by how far corporations will go to peddle their shit. but why didn't anyone working there say "hey, this isn't going to go down well!" or something?!?! barf.

They have stopped the commercials and stopped working with the commercialcompany because of.... Courtney Love! :shock:

Who could have imagined such a big money-whore feeling sorry for her dead husband? Maybe she wants to take it to court and make moneys? :P

Joey Ramones' brother, Mickey Leigh, issued the following statement about the use of his late brother's image:

Obviously, we are in the same position as Courtney Love, as well as the Estates of the others depicted (in the ad). We were never consulted about this ad. We were never asked for permission to use Joey's image, or paid for the use of it. As Executor of my brother's estate I never would have approved this ad as Joey never wore these shoes. And, not that my brother was terribly religious, but the fact that he was Jewish, and this ad is not exactly Kosher, makes it that much more inappropriate, inconsiderate and contemptible.

Though we were about to formulate a statement to the above effect, Courtney certainly has a louder, more influential voice, and I am thrilled that she got through to the them.
