Shirley Manson adding likeness and vocals to Guitar Hero 5 [Update]

Wednesday, 29th July 2009 21:22 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Activision sent us a mailer announcing that Garbage’s Shirley Manson has lent her likeness and vocal stylings to Guitar Hero 5.

Apparently, she will be preforming Only Happy When it Rains in the game.

God no, Shirley, not you too.

Game’s out September 1.

Update: We have bowed down to peer pressure and added the video featuring herself chatting about being in Guitar Hero 5. We must say, the folks there did a grand job of rendering her. Watch after the jump.

    She looks pretty good in the video, not has haggard as she did in Terminator at least.

    Yeah, Hunam. Most gals from the “grunge era” in the early 90′s idolized her. She proved you could be edgy without looking unkempt. ;-)

    Sure was better than the Joan Jett days :-D
