David Cross and J. Mascis shred - VIDEO

guitar heroWho will come out the victor when you pit actor David Cross (Mr. Show, Arrested Development) against Dinosaur Jr frontman J. Mascis in a Guitar Hero II challenge? The answer is in the video below.

Of course, I really didn't care who won, it was just fun to watch Cross riff and read the TelePrompter along with the host. Also, his comments about AOL at the end of the video almost had me on the floor (the video was made for AOL's The DL, and AOL also owns TV Squad). He should like, tell jokes in front of people for a living. Mascis seemed a little uncomfortable, but give the guy a break, he wasn't exactly in his element, being an actual muscian and all.

Considering the popularity of Guitar Hero, will they eventually make similar games for other instruments? Because I think I could totally kick ass on Clarinet Hero. Trombone Hero, not so much, but give me a woodwind and I'll rock the freakin' house down (or up, I can rock in all kinds of directions).

Friends and I have already formed a "band", and we're totally going to go all battle of the bands-style against other friends' "bands" for the supreme master band. Or something.

I can see this being a worldwide league. I'll work on the website when I get back from Europe!

I believe "Rock Band" will also allow for an actual bass instead of a guitar-as-a-bass, like Guitar Hero II currently does.

Actually, a game called "Rock Band" (from the guys who created Guitar Hero) is going to come out soon which will also allow you to use a drum and a microphone (for singing of course).

You could play the game solo but the best part is that you could form a band and play together, even online.
