Guitar Hero 5
Johnny Cash Joins Guitar Hero 5 Playable Character Ranks
Written By
View author's profile

Guitar Hero 5 is looking like the best installment in the series yet and for once, doesn't look in the same vein as what we like to call "the cash-ins" that have almost watered down the brand recently.

Not only do we have a really solid setlist of 85 tracks, avatars available as playable characters, Shirley Manson (*purrs*),  the ability to import tracks from other Guitar Hero titles (as well as a vast majority of downloadable songs being compatible), but now we have Johnny Cash as a playable character also.

It hasn't quite overtaken The Beatles: Rock Band as a must buy in my house yet, but it's coming close to being bought as well. Dammit, as if this year wasn't going to be expensive enough without another musical title creeping on to my radar.

Ladies and gentlemen, Johnny Cash ...

What's that got to do with anything? Hendrix is in a GH and he's been dead years.

Cash is a legend anyway.

Funny how Guitar Hero 5 can't compete with a band-themed game.

This game is still a rent in my books because I'm not rich, so I'm going to have to go with my favored franchise, Rock Band.

I heard a rumor that the next playable character is going to be Matthew Belamy of Muse. I read this on a website that guessed the full setlist correctly, and that Shirley Manson, and Johnny Cash would be playable, so i am hoping that it is more than just a rumor.

Well, considering that Guitar Hero has been out longer than Rock Band has, it kind of makes sense.

Rock Band was first introduced in 2007, while Guitar Hero's first game was released in 2005. It's pretty much common sense that the game that was released earlier is going to spawn more sequels than one that was released later. Think, man, think!


TECHNICALLY, there are more GH games, so you're right, TECHNICALLY it's more than 5. But since we're going by numbered installments, which probably means new engine and all, it's 5.

@#9: I've read that as well. Bellamy from Muse was on the list of characters as well as Kurt Cobain from Nirvana.

Webb, you forgot to mention Santana in your list of awesomeness in the post! He's been officially confirmed, though I don't know if the site here ever actually mentioned it on the front page.

I'm not sure why Moneyvision* would do this. It seems like a huge digrace to a legendary icon, but I digress this is becoming more like Dance Dance Revolution.

*Activision is one of the largest publishers in the world, who are considering dropping the PS3 because games don't sell well on it. So Moneyvision.

@16 isn't the goal of any company to make money? If you run a company and your losing money supporting one platform, I guess you would just keep losing money? Activision knows what they are doing considering they are one of the few game companies to make money the last 4 quarters. So learn more about business before you bash a company for doing what they are supposed to be doing, and you don't have to buy any of their products if you don't like them.

what happend to guitar hero the music sucks in these new ones except for GH:M and GH:VH activision has gone so mainstream what happend to iron maiden, disturbed, anthrax, black sabbath they need to put better bands in i mean ok sure the odd indie band is ok but most of the songs are indie.
In my opinion it needs more Metal......oh well rock band might be on the horizon for me.

If Cash was alive, it's unlikely that he'd allow himself to be in it, but the rights to his likeness have passed on to his next of kin (or the record label; not sure). I like the move. A lot of the younger gamers will not care, but it's cool.

Yes, this GH is shaping up to be one of the best, and I really like the avatar support, but Rock Band has earned my respect in so many ways that GH 5 (also known as GH 10) is too little, too late.

It isn't sad, it's business. And rock band has LEGO rock band on the way (Possibly the biggest sell-out ever IMHO)
If the cash cow's milk is still selling then they will milk it until it's dry.

The song choice is annoying because it won't appeal to actual Johnny Cash fans (Come on, Ring of Fire! Where's Folsom Prison Blues or a Boy Named Sue?? :D)

That song has been picked because more people know of it than Johnny Cash himself and it will appeal to all these 'Look I have class' music wannabes.

But like I said the milk is still very popular and unfortunately most of the people who buy these games are not real fans of music or videogames tbh.

That's just my opinion anyways :)

How can people keep saying " But he's dead " when if you look at the other GH/RB games :
Jimi Hendrix
George Harrison / John Lennon
Grim Reaper
Ozzy ( Sort of )

All dead ......

I've never purchased any of these music games, but have often been interested. Could someone give me a realistic explanation of the difference between GH and Rock Band? (Just saying GH sucks more "because it does" doesn't help me, and does nothing to prove your point).

I know some people (including my friends) complain about the lack of metal, or amount of mainstream stuff (No Doubt comes to mind), but it seems like both games suffer from this, so where's the favoritism coming from?

25 ur a retard

this was confirmed months ago. Thanks anyway Webb

fuck off people who want guitar hero to revolve around metal. They can't get money if they focus on one type of music. (excluding gh:m that's different) that's why they put a range of characters in every game so many people will be hopefully happy with someone.

Don't get me wrong I love metal but I just have a broader taste of music like grunge and classic rock

@36, sorry to double-post, but all of those characters were chosen for their impact, skill, or fame in the guitar world (and because any other names probably don't want to be featured in the game, or haven't worked daels out yet). At the end of the day, it's called "Guitar Hero", not "only people that I like from bands that I listen to" (if that was the case I'd say get GZA in here, lol)

Also, what's up with the J. Cash hate? If you think it's in bad taste, why's no one complaining about Hendrix? And if you think HE'S not worthy, then who is?

Wow. The comment section should be renamed Bitch Section.

Because almost everyone that posts a comment bitches about the news article. Including me botching about the Bitchers.

But anways.

Cash is a country star, not blues idiots.

Cash is a legend, and one of my favorites.

Hendrix is dead, yet when they announced he was going to be in the game everyone had an orgasm about it. Hendrix sucks. He's nothing special.

If Cash was alive he wouldn't have signed off on this. But he isn't. RIP. The rights were sold and now he's here. This is a good thing.

If you don't care about the article don't read it and don't comment. You RB fans just troll GH news post. I love RB. But I also love GH.

I hate Online Multiplayer. So I avoid posts about multiplayer, I don't bitch abou

@#41: The differences are whether you prefer circles (GH) or rectangles (RB).

RB has supported it's game post-launch by releasing DLC weekly, adding up to a whopping 700+ total available to play (IF you have the money to spend on absolutely every DLC song...).

GH has (for GHWT) supported the game with weekly DLC, though it's often considerably less per-week than RB has. GH has also been releasing many games on-disc (which I personally prefer as it's MUCH cheaper than buying DLC individually and can expose me to new music I may like). The game has open notes for the Bass, and has begun to chart double bass on Drums.

Both franchises are great in my opinion, which is why I support both disc releases as well as DLC.

Its not that I don't understand business. Its that I don't approve of their methods which is basically wrapping a noose around Sony's neck and saying do what we say (cut the George Foreman Grill's price by $100 which would mean that it would cost Sony $50 dollars for you to buy their console) or we cut production on 40% of the games released on your console so excuse me for disagreeing with hardball methods of making money.

How in the hell is this one of the top installments in the series? The setlist absolutely blows, and that's everything with music games. Beatles Rock Band is going to blow as well. I love how before it was announced, RB fanboys didn't care for the Beatles but now that it's the band that will be in the next RB installment, they're instantly lifetime Beatles fans. Those are the same fanboys that hate Metallica, Aerosmith, and Van Halen just because they're exclusive to GH. Fanboys...

Rockband is a one-off party game.

Guitar Hero is a classic. The songs are fresh and play spectacularly, and activision actually listens to what the fans of the game want, not just what the big record labels want to shove down everyone's throat.

When was the last time rock band gave out excellent songs for FREE?!

It doesn't happen. People bitch about watered down GH games when you can get 50+ songs for less than $40 or $50 for the newest titles, when rock band is $2 a song. Do the math you fanboys, Guitar Hero is the stronger series for people who actually play through these games. Always will be.

GH 5 will set the bar, like the series always has.

I actually second Phil Collins, due to the distinct lack of anything other than guitar heroes in, essentially, a band game. Although if that weren't possible, I'd definitely nominate Mark King from Level 42 as a Bass Guitar Hero!

The wise man will bow down before the throne, and at his feet, they'll cast a golden crown.

I bow to Johnny Cash. Absolute legend. Great to see him in a GH game, although I don't know how he'd like it...

I bought GH5 BECAUSE of Johnny Cash! I have a very short list of musicians that I see as being originals, this game contains 2 of them as playable characters. Kurt Cobain and the great Johnny Cash.
