A while ago I wrote about Johnny Cash ‘appearing’ in Guitar Hero 5. Didn’t think it was cool but it was legal so whatever. But there is one other person in Guitar Hero 5 whose appearance seems just as absurd. That person is Kurt Cobain.
Now, to be honest, I am not a fan of either Kurt Cobain or Nirvana. I do though respect their contribution to the music scene in the nineties. Unlike Cash, Cobain is a ‘playable’ character in GH5 and this leads to all sorts of wrong. I think it’s quite disgraceful and disrespectful what Activision has done here but that’s just my opinion.
