As if they haven't lost all credibility already, the members of Good Charlotte happily pound toy bongos in a television commercial for Donkey Konga 2.
Apparently, Good Charlotte's "The Anthem" and "Predictable" are among the popular songs that Nintendo licensed for its rhythm game sequel.
Other playable tracks include:
"All Star" Smash Mouth
"Come Clean" Hilary Duff
"Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)" Blu Cantrell
"I Don't Want to Know (If You Don't Want Me)" The Donnas
"Full Moon" Brandy
"It's Been Awhile" Staind
"La Bamba" Los Lobos
"No More Drama" Mary J. Blige
"Pieces of Me" Ashlee Simpson
"Rock the Boat" Aaliyah
"Send the Pain Below" Chevelle
"Shiny Happy People" R.E.M.
"Sidewalks" Story of the Year
"U Don't Have to Call" Usher
"Wish You Were Here" Incubus
I thought American Idol licensed crap…
This list reads like the Grand Theft Auto radio station from hell. I don't ever want to hear any of these songs again, let alone percuss to them.
I'm convinced the Donkey Konga series would be better served by a more "mature" developer with less qualms licensing such carpal tunnel gems as "Toxicity" by System of a Down or anything by Rush.
As seen on the Scarborough Country website:
"Hey, it changed some CEO's life. It must be good."
The guy used to be a U.S. Representative and he just recently discovered The Stranger? It's only one of the most widely read novels of the 20th century and a staple of high school literature courses.
Oh and The Cure recorded a blah blah blah.
Cardigan thinks we constantly promote Fall Out Boy.
I hope that isn't the general perception of our site.
Better Fall Out Boy than Insufferable Stevens though, I suppose.
