Kurt Cobain to be a playable character in Guitar Hero 5

Late Nirvana frontman joins Guitar Hero 5

Activision has announced that Kurt Cobain will be appearing in Guitar Hero 5, and has revealed the first pictures and video of the rock icon to the public, all of which you can find in this article. Cobain will presumably only appear when the player chooses one of two Nirvana tracks--"Smells Like Teen Spirit" and a live recording of "Lithium. It's worth noting that Cobain is the only member of the band that appears to be in the game--bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl do not appear to be backing Cobain in the media shown thus far.

Guitar Hero 5 comes out this Tuesday, September 1 on the PlayStation 2, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
