On the topic of video games, lots of things have been going on in the Rock Band/Guitar Hero universe, for those who care:
- There has been some controversy about the use of Kurt Cobain in the recent Guitar Hero 5. It’s not because he is a character you can play in the new game, but because he can be unlocked and used to play songs by other people, like Flavor Flav or Third Eye Blind. This has led to Courtney Love threatening to sue, Activision showing her signature on the contracts allowing it, and the rest of Nirvana and Nirvana fans being upset with both.
- I was curious for the reasoning behind Lego Star Wars or Lego Indiana Jones, but Lego Rock Band? Really?
- Have you heard of DJ Hero?Â The controller and whole idea seems kinda ridiculous, but it would be interesting to hear some of the songs from the tracklist.Â Considering how popular old classic rock songs became after they were featured in Guitar Hero, it would be funny to see if mixing and real dj-ing became more popular.Â I can just imagine a the lunchroom/basement of a catholic grade school full of 12 year old club-heads and a spikey haired dj with two vinyl turntables and ski goggles for an Valentines dance.
And if all of this is too much for you, check out Rock Sellout for a mixtape of songs from a simpler time.
