Wait ... what the fuck?

What a baby.

The Devil Went Down to Georgia is a great song, but bitching over something stupid like that is childish.

He don't own the rights to the song anymore and GH3 has been out awhile now... Why did he wait to complain?

He probably didn't even know about the game until now, or something. Anyway, he just wants people to remember he's still alive, if that's the best thing he can come up with to get attention.

That's dumb. Besides, they would have had to ask the Recording company to use it because it has been renewed for BEST OF albums sales. So Charlie knew it was going to happen, and changed his mind too late, probably.

Stupidest excuse ever.

Why doesn't he say something like "Steve Ouimette butchered a classic!" or something like that. Its a lie, but its a better excuse to be bitching.

I come back to the site and...this comes up. Guess I can add my two cents (play to Devil Went Down to Georgia's chorus):

Fire on the sound, better flee guys flee.
The devil's in the house of Guitar Hero III.
Cryin bout the devil beating you ingame.
Then in the news he makes himself sound lame.

Flashes across the screen, play your notes and win.
If you lose, watch Charlie's head start to spin.
Condeming the game, grumbling bout his song.
Please Charlie tell us where you got that bong.

Saying the game's content is too much to bear.
Speaking in my part how many actually care.
So there are bad things in that game's CD.
But how many people are rocking out too much to see?

(No, seriously. Weird Al records a version about pot, and he doesn't raise the red flag. Now the song is, in essence, at its most symbolic, and NOW he's going to complain. Gotta love that brand of whining.)

So, wait, why is the reason he cares? Is it a religious reason? If so I think he should have a look at the the song itself...
