You can make Kurt Cobain sing terrible songs in Guitar Hero 5

Remember when Doc Martens unveiled that ad campaign with Kurt Cobain, Joe Strummer, and Joey Ramone wearing boots in heaven and then everyone hated it so they ditched it like three days later? Pretty sure this is worse:

While I'm sure I'll be accused of being utterly humorless on the point, this is pretty gross. Maybe Cobain had a soft spot for Bon Jovi, but having him sing "Comedown" by Bush is the ultimate indignity (not to mention the irony of having him perform Megadeth). Kudos to the compiler of the video, though, for revealing the utter ridiculousness that is Guitar Hero (to those who weren't already aware); at least in Rock Band the bands stick to their own music.
