Guitar Hero II

The December 9 issue of Kerrang! features an article about the very popular Playstation 2 game Guitar Hero II. The article notes that the game is popular on band busses and used frequently by bands such as Slayer, Bullet for my Valentine & My Chemical Romance.

The game basically lets you play along to classic rock anthems, using a small plastic guitar with five buttons that you need to hit in order to match the guitarist on screen.

Some of the songs you can play include classics by Mötley Crüe, Van Halen, Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses and of course Nirvana. The game came out in the UK last month and should be available worldwide now.

In other news, the same issue of Kerrang! gave the "Live! Tonight! Sold Out!!" DVD a 4 out of 5 rating, calling it "the most truthful document of a goofy, enthused rock band becoming bemused/exasperated by the circus that swiftly surrounded them."
