As we’ve discussed before, the Guitar Hero series is widely responsible for introducing an entire generation of nerds to the concept of the kick-ass guitar-led rock and metal songs. Arguably one of the most eclectic and fondly remembered song ever featured in the series is Jordan. A bastard hard 5 minute long noodling guitar solo so difficult to finish some versions of the game rewarded you for it.

Danny Elfman is a man who is singlehandedly responsible for more ear worms than a poorly maintained graveyard and throughout his career has composed some of the most memorable and iconic soundtracks from pop culture.

Now while the original, Japanese version is the most famous, there’s a lot to be said about the American adaptation, most of it about how they made an actor scream about the eponymous kaiju for a day straight.
