The Day Guitar Hero Died from @warpzonetweets

I will give him props for being creative and giving props to Rock Band (um hello, I have been saying Rock Band was better the entire time!).   It's pretty funny actually, I wonder if the attention would convince the makers of Guitar Hero to rethink this one?   At the very least, we can credit Guitar Hero with introducing a whole new generation of kids to awesome rock music.   I really didn't play Guitar Hero that much- the guitar was too awkward for me and I cannot use those newfangled xbox controllers- my hands were trained on Super NES and refuse to adapt...but I did try playing against Slash and loved it (and lost very badly- but it was SLASH!)     RIP Guitar Hero.


This song goes out to everyone who ever rocked out on a plastic guitar.

The Warp Zone - The Day Guitar Hero Died Lyrics

A long, long time ago...
In my college dorm room
Guitar Hero used to made me smile
And I knew if I had no fear
That I could make that fake crowd cheer
And it would make me happy for a while.

But February made me shiver
With every blog post I would quiver
Bad news on the Internet
No more colorful frets

I couldn't believe my tearing eyes
When I read what Kotick did decide
I really wish it was a lie
The day Guitar Hero died

So bye-bye fake guitar playing guy
This decision Activision made
Has left us deprived
Them good ol' boys were drinking red bull and sprite
Singin rock band would have been a good buy
Rock band would have been a good buy

Did you lose your faith in games
When you couldn't perfect Through the Fire and Flames
Did your Star power get too low?

Do you believe what happened here?
Did this game save Slash's music career?
And could you teach me how to play in Easy mode?

Well, I know you love your C-O-D
And are planning Modern Warfare 3
Your guns replaced guitars
And you tomahawked our hearts

I was a lonely teenage legend of rock
With a Boston t-shirt and superman socks
But I found I was nothin' but talk
The day Guitar Hero died

I started singin',
Bye-bye fake guitar playing guy
This decision Activision made
Has left us deprived
Them good ol' boys were drinking red bull and sprite
Singin rock band would have been a good buy
Rock band would have been a good buy

At Neversoft, designers screamed
Musicians cried, and the gamers dreamed?
But we were out of tokens;
And the PS2's were broken

And the songs I 5-starred all the time
Like Free Bird and Sweet Child of Mine
Got stuck on replay in my mind
The day Guitar Hero Died

We were singin'
Bye-bye fake guitar playing guy
This decision Activision made
Has left us deprived
Them good ol' boys were drinking red bull and sprite
Singin rock band would have been a good buy
Rock band would have been a good buy
