‘Cowbell Hero’ arrives way later than it should
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.
