Last month, I wrote about Aerosmith's special edition of the video game Guitar Hero. Now Aerosmith easily have enough of a catalog to fill up a game with just thier own songs. Add some of thier covers, you have about 100 great songs.

But it turns out that the band are using some other artists on the game. Some of thier influences, like The Kinks and Mott The Hoople will be included, as well as some bands who have opened for them, like Cheap Trick and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. This is according to Gaming Today.

To me, this brings up an interesting question: is curating a video game the new "guest DJing" for superstar acts? For sure, it's a good way to hook up bands you love, or bands you are friends with, with nice royalty checks.

I'm not a gamer, but I might check this one out.
