Charlie Daniels Upset About The Devil Went Down to Georgia on Guitar Hero

The Devil Went Down to Guitar Hero

I guess I'm not the only person upset at how bad I butcher songs on Guitar Hero — Charlie Daniels of the Charlie Daniels Band is fuming about his song, The Devil Went Down To Georgia, being included on the game, saying it's been "perverted" and that he's "disgusted with the result." Kotaku spotted this on Charlie Daniel's own website, which reveals that he lost the publishing rights to the song years ago in a settlement.

All I can think is, awww, Charlie Daniels! I wish he knew the joy Guitar Hero brings to everybody and the inspiration to learn the guitar that the game has brought (for me anyway), as well as the exposure of such a rad song to a younger generation.

Chin up, buddy. I swear everyone's not as crappy as me on that song.

I hate to even say this as I know not everyone likes to profit from their art... but if he was the one with the rights to it and making that paycheck he might not think it's so perverted. I think if I lost the rights to one of the only things people know me for I would be annoyed too.

i <3 guitar hero, and even that Charlie Daniels song. he is probably exposing a huge group of ppl to his music through g.h. that wouldn't be interested otherwise.
