Remembered as one of the most iconic artists in the history of alternative rock, Kurt Cobain’s enduring legacy continues as he debuts as one of five exclusive in-game artists in Guitar Hero 5. Former lead singer and guitarist of Nirvana will be featured as a playable character, performing two of the band’s hit singles from their 1991 genre-defining album Nevermind: “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and a special, previously unreleased live recording of “Lithium.” The band’s breakthrough hit and one of the greatest rock songs of all time, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” helped define the 1990s and will speak to a whole new generation in GH5.

Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for Activision comments,”Kurt Cobain is one of the most recognizable frontmen in rock ‘n’ roll history and it’s an honor to have two of Nirvana’s masterpieces included in Guitar Hero 5. This is the first time the original recording of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ has ever been licensed in an entertainment property and we’re thrilled to offer Guitar Hero® fans exclusive access to the unreleased live version of ‘Lithium.”

Kurt at his finest.
