Grunge Icon Comes Alive

After resting in peace for the past 15 years, Activision are bringing one of the 1990’s rock icons back to life


Remembered as one of the most iconic artists of the ’90s, Kurt Cobain’s enduring legacy continues with his video game debut as one of five exclusive in-game artists in Guitar Hero® 5.

The 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 no doubt be a popular addition to the ever-expanding list of artists on the game.
