Worst Rock-Star cameos of all time

Before Guitar Hero, real musicians and games hit a big fat brown note

KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child – 2000

Critical shred:Overall, it left a bitter taste in my mouth.” - ActionTrip

Whoda thunk that the band that gave us lyrics like “Shout it. Shout it. Shout it loud” and “Lick it up. Lick it up. Oooooooooooooh” would have produced the incredibly unimaginative gameplay found on PC and the Dreamcast? Well, probably anybody but a Kiss fan, because even Todd McFarlane’s nightmarish designs couldn’t save this first person shooter from lookingas desperate and hokey as the band’s latest tour.

This one is kind of a cop-out since you actually play as a Kiss tribute band, which is notable as the single moment of licensing restraint from a band that’s already sanctioned bicycle shorts, midget cover bands and a f**king coffin. Those are cool, but appearing in a videogame? “We’re just not comfortable with that.” says the band currently selling bibs and wine on its website.
