I think a song like Ginger would do great in Rock Band if they released it an indie track pack. But I think it just comes down to us not wanting people becoming fans through games like these are meeting someone with a Lilys shirt and having a conversation like this.

Real Fan: Hey man cool Lilys T shirt whats your favorite song?
Fake Fan: ummm All of them, my favorite is the one Guitar Hero.

I fear this happening to Elliott Smith

Sonic Youth is a good band for these kinda games but not Elliott. I dont think it'll be Needle in the Hay because it doesnt seem Guitar Hero worthy I mean it was one of the first songs I learned to play on guitar. Im thinking something from Figure 8 or From a Basement.

Yeah, probably anything from his major label albums. The big labels like to whore their music. Also, they have heavier, electric guitar based songs that suit the came better. I for some reason thought "Son of Sam" when I first read it.

Also, Sonic Youth also had "Kool Thing" in one of the games. I don't remember which one though.

Elliott Smith doesn't really belong on a game like Guitar Hero, but nothing particularly terrible can come of it. He'll probably gain a few new fans from the younger generation, if anything.

But, sir... I got one of the last Lilys T's so... it would be highly unlikely that I'd find a poser wearing one. Also, those scene ***gots are going to be pretending to like Elliott Smith after this is out for a couple of months.

You guys really care too much. The real issue here is how much Elliott Smith's estate has been raped lately.

Yeah, he's one of the last musicians I could imagine being featured on Guitar Hero but I don't think it's it's horrible or anything. But if they're using Elliott Smith now, I'm curious to see what other artists they'll choose in the future.

What else have they used his music for lately? The last time I heard him on any sort of tv show was on Gossip Girl.
