“Guitar Hero 5”, the latest rendition for rocking out but not really, is due September 1 from Activision. Late last week, the game’s full set list was revealed, and it includes some surprising choices outside the usual hard rock anthems.
Like Vampire Weekend’s “A Punk” or Elliott Smith’s “L.A.”, Sunny Day Real Estate’s “Seven”, Band of Horses’ “Cigarettes, Wedding Bands”, and Weezer’s Pinkerton-classic “Why Bother?”.
I would play the shit out of Elliott Smith on Guitar Hero. Check out the full set list here.
