‘Cowbell Hero’ arrives way later than it should

Matt Hawkins Contributing Writer, Video Games

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.
