‘Cowbell Hero’ arrives way later than it should

By / 11.28.12

Cowbell Hero being something that references a Saturday Night Live sketch, one that’s literally over a decade old, and Guitar Hero games, which hardly anyone remembers either.

Though one has to give the makers of Cowbell Hero some credit: they actually went and got actual licensed music to be included in the game. In addition to (Don’t Fear) The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult, you also have…

Down on the Corner by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Hair of the Dog by Nazareth
Little Willy as made famous by Sweet
Incense and Peppermints by Strawberry Alarm Clock
Evil Ways as made famous by Santana
Time Has Come Today as made famous by The Chambers Brothers
Got to Give it Up by Marvin Gaye
Better by the Pound by Funkadelic
Rock Me by Steppenwolf
Good to Your Earhole by Funkadelic

There are even bonus tracks and even a story mode. So this is a real deal game. Such effort is either impressive or depressing, you make the call.
