Cobain Fronts One of the Worst Bands Ever in Guitar Hero



I haven't had a chance to play Guitar Hero 5 yet, but I plan to spend the long holiday weekend jamming my ass off, so don't even think of stopping by. Needless to say, I haven't even come close to unlocking any of the cool things you get to see only after you've played the game for 379 hours straight.

Apparently, late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is an unlockable character in Career Mode, and you can make him sound like Flava Flav, bounce around to songs he wouldn't be caught dead bouncing around to (sorry), and sing songs by other artists.

Some dude found out just how low Cobain's estate will go toward selling his legacy. The hellmouth opens around the 25-second mark, when the awful, awful intro to professional liars Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name" rings out. For the next few minutes, Cobain —leader of one of the best bands of the '90s — fronts one of the worst bands of all time, Bon Jovi.

Yeah, it makes me kinda sick too. —Michael Gallucci
