This is seriously messed up.

I feel bad for the person that buys this game.

If he were still alive, he would have signed up for this shit just to support his heroin addiction.

Yes... because that's entirely possible. Harmonix are musicians and you can tell by the way they make their games. Neversoft are IP/license perpetuators, nothing more.

I've currently got Kurt Cobain playing bass in my GH5 band. He was singer for a while, but seeing Kurt move that much was freaking me out, so I put Matt Bellamy in front again. 
 
Game's awesome, though. Best GH yet.

20 years too early! 

#108 Posted by AngryKraut (80 posts) -

I'm not outraged either...but fuck. Kurt is a legend, and he deserves a higher level of respect than what is given here. I wont be buying GH 5 now...that's for sure.

" Yeah I'm a Nirvana fan, and yes as funny as it is, it's in fairly poor taste, but my question is why has no-one mentioned John Lennon yet? He would have fucking despised being a video game. I fully aware he is singing his own songs but I can guarantee he would never signed his likeness away that quickly after years of shitty, poorly advised Beatles merchandise. "
Well atleast the use of John Lennon is being respectful to not only each song, the meaning behind it, but also the time in which it was made by the beatles

I just tought about this when watching that a second time  
If they ever put Bob Marley in one of those games, I commit suicide

Kinda weird.

#112 Posted by Woocifer (65 posts) -

Meh he's just a dude... his music was simple and so was he. He wasn't an icon, the fact people needed an icon that bad at the time they MADE him the icon.

I was seriously trying to think of a franchise that pulled something so heinous in one of its sequels that you could call it "jumping the shark". What did Sonic actually do to "jump the shark"? What was the virtual straw that broke the virtual camel's back?

This is a fucking travesty.

#115 Posted by Curufinwe (1265 posts) -

Nice that the "Must be rolling in his grave" line applies  literally for once.

#116 Posted by Figglesworth (50 posts) -

Pretty ghoulish.  Whomever is responsible for putting this in the game should be hit over the head with a flaming guitar.

#117 Posted by theMcNasty (740 posts) -

One vote for developer restraint.

#118 Posted by JeffGoldblum (3704 posts) -

Miis look really fucking weird in this game.

Holy crap that's PERFECT!

@AvD: I see your point. The series in general is just becoming a complete mess. It should be taken out back and shot before any more problems arise.
#121 Posted by CorporalGregg (46 posts) -

Sweet, a video I threw together got linked to on giantbomb and now rollingstone.com This is hilarious to me.

" How about some respect, if not for Kurt Cobain's legacy, for the dead? I'm not a megafan of Nirvana, but Christ, this is about the most tasteless thing I've seen all day. This almost guarantees that I won't be buying anymore Guitar Hero products. This sure as hell ain't my idea of immortalization. "
This has given me an idea...PUT JESUS CHRIST IN THE GAME!!!



I Supose He Is A Drummer Then?

For fuck sake I felt nauseous watching this, and I'm not even that big of a Nirvana fan.
 
 No sir, I don't like it.

#131 Posted by Sestren (56 posts) -

Hahahaha...that's pretty funny. I mean, come on. He was just a man who took things way too seriously. And there's no reason to not be light-hearted about stuff. Everyone seems perfectly ok with mocking God or Jesus in today's society, so what's there to be offended about here when nothing is sacred? 
 
Cobain himself would probably not like it, but he was too dire about everything anyway. This is of so little consequence to life that I am bemused to see it getting attention beyond a couple laughs.
#132 Posted by Scarabus (480 posts) -

A little messed up.. but we all know Cobain had it coming.

#133 Posted by Neon941 (238 posts) -

I'm not horribly offended, but it does make you feel pretty uncomfortable. I really don't think Kurt Cobain himself would appreciate his likeness being used in the first place and now it kind of seems to be one of the selling points of this game. Along with avatars in the game and the whole Guitar Hero Van Halen deal it kind of smacks of desperation on Neversoft's part. In other words, not cool guys, show a little more respect for the dead.

Fuck you Guitar Hero and FUCK YOU Courtney.

Yeah, I think that's really unfair.  You did all the work, I just linked it.

yea I agree, I like my hands to hurt after playing a plastic guitar, and rock band looks terrible right??...

#139 Posted by megalowho (969 posts) -

I wish if they went this route, they took it all the way. Put Louis Armstrong, Johnny Cash, Pavarotti, Frank Sinatra, all sorts of dead legends and thoroughly disgrace their names by making them sing Blink 182 and Van Halen songs.

@WEGGLES:  
 
I have to admit Weggles... I'm curious as to what her reaction will be, if you do show her:p 
 
Now that that's out of the way, on to the general comment! 
 
Kurt Cobain or not, musician or not, icon or not, it just seems really distasteful all around. 
 
I guess some people want to preserve their memory of something, maybe for selfish reasons (but we all tend to do that in some way) or as part of a greater whole.  This is the dev equivalent of someone taking that which you treasure most and just taking a huge shit they've been saving up for days all over it while you were out saving kittens and old ladies.
#142 Posted by jakob187 (21670 posts) -

That's what he gets for committing suicide. 
 
I liked Nirvana back in the day, when I dumb and naive.  Incesticide is still a good album, but let's face it:  the only good thing Nirvana ever did for us was kill the careers of people like Debbie Gibson, Paula Abdul, New Kids on the Block, and Poison.

I wish any Bush song was in Rock Band 
Anyway Fuck you Guitar Hero even with Comedown I am not spending any money on stupid game
#144 Posted by Mourne (789 posts) -

Wow. Glad to see Neversoft's sticking to that UI that was outdated even four years ago.

#145 Posted by Media_Master (3283 posts) -
