It’s been a while since I’ve had a really bad idea but I had one yesterday that I’ll share with you because it’s guaranteed to make no money and could potentially ruin people. OK, here it is: I’d like to create a version of Rock Band or Guitar Hero featuring the best bands ever performing their worst songs. The trick is that they have to be terrible songs that people are familiar with, this means no outtakes or b-sides, we’re talking nothing but the worst songs that actually appeared on records.
Imagine a kid on his or her birthday getting Rock Band only to discover that it’s “The Worst Songs Edition” and then having to master The Beatles “Revolution # 9 in order to unlock the Replacements “Back to Back” ending in a guitar battle of The Stooges “LA Blues”. That would be no fun at all.
Feel free to steal this idea and create this game, or at least suggest songs that would fit in it.
