I smell a fake. Never-the-less, it's not that great of an idea. Oh, dead pop stars in heaven wearing docs. I'm so underwhelmed.

These have not been banned - according to the Media Guardian. You can see what AdLand has to say about this here:

Saatchi & Saatchi just lost the account because of these ads (which were faked, according to Kate Stanners).

Of course, Courtney Love is furious, but she probably doesn't quite know why. :-)

Carlos is correct
Kurt wore Chucks
Courtney, I smell a big fat lawsuit… if this campaign ever goes to print. (which I hope it don't)
but it would mean, more money for heroin

That was a rash comment, Ras. I am a fan of Kurt's and I detest ur insinuation that just because Kurt may have done it, others would do it (heroin)as well. Besides, I really don't fancy the idea of re-awakening dormant memories just to sell a pair of boots. Pretty cheap, lame and low. Especially when you consider the sudden, and painful circumstances in which they died. I'm not looking at the rest of these series.

Most times, worst enemies used to be best friends...

Courtney Love is a wacko.

And anyways, why the uproar over Kurt and not Sid? Is it because he killed Nancy?

The guy who used boots ala Marten was Cornell (also the guys in AIC). Maybe when they thought of the Grunge movement they chose Cobain in a forced way as the "ultimate grunge icon". Puagg! that sounded lame!
