So, most have you have probably seen all the posts on Kurt Cobain being in Guitar Hero, along with other dead musicians such as Johnny Cash and Jimi Hendrix....so my question is, which dead musician will they package and mass produce for the next crappy game?

I'm praying they won't touch Dimebag Darrell...

(I think i died a little inside when i saw my sister using jimi hendrix, playing a paramore song....ugh...)

I mean, he'd be a pretty cool character to play as, yes?

If they do use Dime it won't matter much to me really. His name has been raped for money so much by now that there probably isn't much they can squeeze out of it at this point.

Hahaha true...I wonder who does that...*Cough DEAN Cough*

Also, the problem is the video game is mass marketed to kids who don't know what music is, so they think that Haley Williams is the greatest musician ever, and don't even know who Hendrix is.

My first thought was Dime, maybe Randy Rhoads as well (who enters the stage by plane, of course)

They already sort of used Dime in one. There was an alternate costume for a character that looked exactly like him.

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

Won't happen. He's not common knowledge amongst kids/most-or-more-likely-all youth.

Won't market well, so it wouldn't sell well, so it won't be made.

Exactly. Even if Dime were to make an appearance how many 10 year old GH addicts would understand who he is?

They already did man.

Quote by Guitar Hero Page
His alternate outfit is a tribute to the late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell. Axel wears a black vest, camo shorts and black and white sneakers. He also sports a long goatee with a red tip, just like Dimebag's.
I couldn't find a picture to show you it, but it really does look a lot like Dimebag. However, it is in tribute rather than monetary exploitation as they didn't use his name in the game (unlike Slash's and Tom's).

Therefore I don't really mind.

hope not the one from the clash (i can't remeber his name right now ) that would be a serious offense
#21
Guitar Hero Johnny Cash would be 3 things
1) Easier than The Beatles Rockband
2) The worst selling Guitar Hero
3) The best Guitar Hero ever, The Beatles Rockband will still be better though.

They know hendrix as that guy on the target or walmart shirt that everyone in the world has. You ask half the people and they probably couldn't name even one of his songs much less more than one. It's just that thing that is making people ignorant about music.

The same thing with the DSOTM prism. Or even the poster with the Floyd albums all painted on the naked girls by the pool. How many people that have either of those two things know they came from a 70's band?

I can't see that happening to be honest. The Clash are decently famous but I don't think the individual members are well known enough

They should just make Claudio Sanchez a playable character.

Or get any guitarist that does crabcore moves.
