With Guitar Hero 5 less than a week away from release, Activision has announced that the era-defining frontman of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, will be a playable character in their latest installment of the successful guitar simulation franchise.
Hit the jump for some further details. “Kurt Cobain is one of the most recognizable frontmen in rock ‘n’ roll history and it’s an honor to have two of Nirvana’s masterpieces included in Guitar Hero 5,” said Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for Activision. He’ll be playable on two songs, the original recording of “Smells Like Team Spirit” and an unreleased live version of “Lithium,” and presumably he’ll be unlockable to play on other songs as well.
Here’s to you, Mr. Cobain. I hope you don’t get tired from all that spinning you’re doing down there.
