"The best way to take the sex appeal out of playing guitar since Christian rock." ~ Honest Game Trailers - Guitar Hero
From the studio that sounds like a defunct communist gas company [RedOctane] and Satan, who is the devil [Activision], comes the best way to take the sex appeal out of playing guitar since Christian rock.
Discover the complete rip-off of Guitar Freaks that puts you in the shoes of a rock god and lets you shred your way through the most blistering solos in history by remembering which colored button comes next. Experience the franchise that filled dumpsters across the world with obsolete plastic guitar controllers in games that over-saturated the market more than the Kardashians, with sequel after sequel you could barely tell apart -- kinda like the Kardashians.
Create your own stereotypical rock nerd and battle your way to the top of a dead musical genre, then duel against masters of the art like Tom Morello, Slash, the lady from Garbage? [Shirley Manson, and... Satan [Activision logo]. No, this guy. [Actual devil]
Hone your skills as you sleepwalk through the hardest songs of all time on medium difficulty, then feel like a total Fred Durst when hard mode makes you actually move your hand around. But if you ever feel like you're in danger of going full Limp Bizkit, crank up the awesome with Star Power, a rush of energy that makes music sound better and everything look sparkly. [Coughs] Cocaine [Coughs].
Once you've conquered everything the game has to offer, dig through the massive catalog of DLC, for players that would give $1.29 for the "Nookie" and $5.49 for a Third Eye Blind track pack. [Crickets] Anybody? Anybody?!?! C'mon! "Semi-Charmed Life" is a modern classic!
Starring: Green; Red; Yellow; Blue; Sometimes Orange; and A Bunch of Random Crap in the Background.

You totally could've learned to play a real guitar by now. I just hope you know that.
