U2 likes the idea of music games, would love to be in one

Recommended Videos

Musicians have been very quick to sh*t all over music games with their “play a real instrument” demands and whining that titles like Guitar Hero and Rock Band discourage kids from wanting to learn music. However, Irish rock band U2 has actually praised the idea behind these games, with bassist Adam Clayton claiming the group wouldn’t mind being in one … if the conditions are right.

“We definitely would like to be in there, but we felt some of the compromises weren’t what we wanted,” explains the bassist. “That could change. I love the idea that that’s where people are getting music, and we’d love to be in that world. We’ll figure something out. What The Beatles have done, where the animation is much more representative of them, is what we’re interested in, rather than the one-size-fits-all animation. We didn’t want to be caricatured.”

So, U2: Rock Band perhaps? Is that something you’d be interested in playing, or are you one of those people that hate Bono and will take a massive crap upon anything U2 is involved in because of it? I don’t care what anybody says, I think U2’s alright, and wouldn’t mind seeing more of that music in Rock Band.
