Kurt Cobain, From the Muddy Banks of Uncanny Valley

You've played as Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Cash before, so it's not like Kurt Cobain is the first, or most recently expired, dead rock legend to be tastefully reincarnated as a Guitar Hero avatar. Even so, this new clip from GH5 of a digital Nirvana doing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Lithium" is the most we've been creeped out by a video game since the original Resident Evil. Thankfully, you'll have to complete a number of in-game challenges before you can control Kurt, and we are not very good at Guitar Hero.
