800 bands you’d rather be than Aerosmith?

Share/Bookmark
Posted by admin On March - 30 - 2008

So tonight while discussing the upcoming release of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Zack claimed that there were 800 bands that he would rather play as than them. I call shenanigans. He said that if given one day, he could come up with that many bands. I told him he doesn’t even know that many bands to begin with, and that there was no way that all of them would be better than Aerosmith.

I also challenged him to come up with 150 guitarists he would rather play as than Joe Perry. I told him that whether or not he liked Aerosmith, he had to accept that Perry is at the very least an above average rock guitarist. Failure to admit that would surely be blasphemy. He still refused to relent on his stance.
This is my standing challenge to Zack. If he is willing to put his credibility on the line by claiming all of these bands would be better to play as than Aerosmith, then so be it. He just has to know that respect of his opinion is at stake. All he has to do is accept defeat and admit that he may have exaggerated and we’ll chalk it up to a night of adult beverages at Bonerama. (There is no way to not make that sound funny.)

  2. Rob Said,

    That’s probably more than I could come up with. Not bad Zack.

  3. KD Said,

    Maybe you could throw Neil Young and Crazyhorse on that list one more time.

  4. Teibs and Shore Said,

    Poor showing. Aside from the fact that you clearly just went through your history of rock playlists and repeated some bands, you put Simon & Garfunkel at 94. If I had the power, I would strip you of your rock credentials.

    I’m not saying Boo-urns…

  6. Teibs and Shore Said,

    Steven Tyler says, “Any band that can go from ‘Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’ to the ass-kicking ‘Sweet Emotion’ to the cheekiness of ‘Love in an Elevator,’ to the classic ballad ‘Dream On’ shows why Activision chose us to headline this game based on the diversity of hte Aerosmith catalog. Not only is songwriting a bitch, but then it goes and has puppies.”

    What does that even mean?!?! -AS
