Fake guitars to help real musicians

If you're looking to add a little pizazz and a dose of touched-by-a-celebrity enchantment to your copy of Guitar Hero 2, eBay's got you right now. MusiCares is auctioning off a bunch of GH2 controllers with custom detaiing by My Chemical Romance, Dashboard Confessional, the Rocket Summer, and Armor for Sleep. AfS wins the emo-est paint job award for their inscription, "When your dreams are granted, you will regret having slept," but if that's not your thing, there are also guitars by Nickelback and Buckcherry, which might be worth a bid on the off-chance that they come infused with whatever douchebag voodoo keeps those bands frustratingly unkillable. Hot Hot Heat, emerging from a wormhole to 2002, came up with a design, as did a random collection of famous types (Jack Black, Tony Hawk). The current high bid is for a controller decorated by Brendon Small, the main guy behind the genius cartoon Metalocalypse. It's nice to know Dethklok is starting to dominate the real world as much as the fictional one in their cartoon.
