In a recent interview with Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles, Tesla revealed that their song “Modern Day Cowboy” will appear on Guitar Hero 6. Guitarist Frank Hannon says that Activision asked them if the song could be in the game. Don’t front. You might not like Tesla that much, but it’s hard to go wrong with “Modern Day Cowboy.” While Tesla was unfairly lumped in with the hair metal scene, they just made good, honest rock.
On a related note, does anyone still buy Guitar Hero and Rock Band games any more? They’re still really fun to play, but it seems like they peaked a few years ago around the time Guitar Hero 3 and the first Rock Band came out. But if they’re turning people on to new music, good for them. There’s still people finding out about music via video games, and if it helps people get into new music, then it’s a win for everyone.
