Allah Sulu-South Park

Dream On

cmndrcuddles informed me that there's a new Guitar Hero game coming out – Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. "The premise is that it's going to cover the 30-plus years of the band, from high school all the way through the rock superstardom of today," Kai Huang, head of Activision's RedOctane unit, which guides development of the franchise, told Reuters in an interview. OK, I like Aerosmith and all, but I have no idea why – out of all the bands in the world – you'd choose them as the first band to dedicate a Guitar Hero game to. Unless – and this is my theory – Activision is going by alphabetic order. Which means that the people who want to play Guitar Hero: ZZ Top have a loooong wait ahead of them.
