Eh, I could take them or leave em. I like a few of their songs. But they are a testament to the quality behind Rock Band and everything else Harmonix has made. Considering most of the staff at Harmonix is made up active recording artists or gigging musicians.

The saddest part is that I'm quite sure that's the game we would be getting if Activision had made this.

You mean Kurt Cobain sings the Beatles?

The obvious joke they could've gone for would've been the Activision guy saying they even fixed the spelling mistake when making "Guitar Hero: The Beetles" because that's just how dedicated they are to their craft.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Oh dear(from Joystiq):

If you were disgusted by the inclusion of a playable Kurt Cobain in Guitar Hero 5, you weren't the only one: Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, has gone on record (well, on Twitter, anyway, in what looks a lot like Courtney Love's real Twitter account) to register her disapproval, saying, "For the record this Guitar Hero (expletive) is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction." Love plans to "sue the (expletive) out of Activision," speaking for herself, Cobain's estate, and "the various LLCs Cobain Enterprises."

She claims to have never given approval for a Kurt Cobain avatar. "We have NOTHING to do with this," she said across two tweets (presented here as originally typed, with the exception of connecting the two messages). "it was presented to me and oi said 'show me a better avataR' TO DRAG MY HEELS., never did i intend on allowing GUITARHERO for me or for Kurt i am NOT yoko (expletive) Ono no ofense to her, but i am a different person entirely and this is insane."

The Cobain avatar was upsetting enough when we thought Love had signed off on it. But now that we hear she hasn't, we're worried for our own sakes. We could all end up playable in a Guitar Hero game at any time.
Update:
[QUOTE]This morning, we reported on Courtney Love's tweeted allegations that the ghastly Kurt Cobain avatar was included in Guitar Hero 5 without her consent. Though the company didn't mention whether or not the lawsuit has actually been filed against them, Activision just sent us a statement refuting Love's claims:

"Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain's likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero(r) 5."

Maybe Love did sign off on it, but just doesn't remember. There, we said it. We were all thinking it anyway.[/QUOTE]

Lol...

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

So anyone playing the Beatles game? I'm not in to the beatles but I still enjoyed the game. Most of the songs are really fun to play, and the little animated sequences were really cool.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I must say, one of the funniest things i ever saw in video games would be Johnny Cash getting down when singing "Play that funky music, white boy" in Guitar Hero 5...
