'Boys Don't Cry' in Rocksmith video game

The Cure's 'Boys Don't Cry' will be included in the tracklist for the upcoming 'Rocksmith' video game, which is like Guitar Hero & Rock Band, but uses real guitars.

Update (03/19/13): For those of you who still have this game, this article says a new downloadable Cure pack will be released today on Xbox 360 and tomorrow on PS3. The pack includes 'Lovesong', 'The End of the World', and 'Just Like Heaven'. Here's the link for XBox360. (Thanks David and fornever)

  2. You look down at your hands and realize your playing a cover while "reading tabs" on your tv.

    I've played guitar for over 20 years and these types of games can actually be fun(rockband pro mode) and teach you covers and strengthen technique if you've already got it...but they wont teach you to write music, that comes from within. Although learning covers doesn't hurt as you see how others write...and are fun if you like the songs.

    they even got dave to endorse it, we'll see if it works...
