"Sudden Death" by Megadeth and "Black Rain" by Soundgarden Nominated for Grammy's
 
 

I thought it was interesting when the demand and popularity for music games like Guitar Hero grew to the point where artists were interested in composing songs just for the game. Megadeth and Soundgarden both did this for the Warrior's of Rock Guitar Hero game by Activision.

I haven't heard either of the tracks, but apparently, the exclusive in game tracks were good because both of them have been nominated for Grammy awards. I guess I always though in game tracks were either classic and popular tunes or the "B" side tracks that no one thought would do well.

You can get the Soundgarden track "Black Rain" for free in MP3 format on the Guitar Hero Facebook page right now as a celebratory gift to fans for the nomination. “From the first time I played Guitar Hero in Paris several years ago until recently getting my ass handed to me playing at an Activision event in San Francisco, this has been the most fun and most rewarding track I have ever written,” said Dave Mustaine of Megadeth.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
