Very rare I think...only Kurt Kobain was the other one, maybe Matt Groening did too, not sure.

But I did notice that Jonah Hill one...I came here just to tell people about it!

Yeah, the only one I know of is the Beck version, it's pretty much the same as Daniel's version.

The one thing I like about old MTV is the trippy animation things...those ruled. Also, they had more diversity and showed more music and less crappy shows.

But by the time I started watching it, 1995 or so...it already kind of sucked.

Dan sucks ass. this whole thing is a trip that some retard can get that much attention. These people need to hear some real music ,they would be amazed. People, WAKE UP!

You only saw the movie, right? There weren't tons of songs in the movie, and he's a really great guy (his music is some of the best music ever created). I don't think it's such a good idea to be so bitter and jealous of him...but I'm not right about everything!

If a kid can't tell the difference between shooting a bunch of characters in a game and shooting a real person..........then he needs to be locked away.
If "Stairway to Heaven" makes you want to shoot yourself then you need to step away from the turntable.




Yes, common sense people!

Well, I get over video games. I mean, the first few weeks (or months) I might really be into them. But I think I kind of stopped playing video games too much ever since I started playing guitar. I still love the games though, I think it's fine. For every 12 million kids that play them maybe a handful will imitate the games. What about hunting? Hunting is real life killing and people do that all their lives. So, maybe we should be outraged that kids are learning to hunt animals. I think people are making a big deal out of it, I mean, when I go outside and see people I don't see them as targets in a video game, if you do, then you have problems beyond the games. I love racing games and I hardly ever drive over the speed limit anymore. I used to be more reckless, but that was just because I was used to seeing the people around me driving like that. Let's just be responsible for ourselves, I think it's a good idea.

If you kill someone, you can blame music, movies or video games for it, but you're totally full of it if that's your defense. Plus, a lot of the video game violence really only effects kids in this country. Those games are in Europe, Canada and Asia too. The US is the country that has the big gun violence problem.

I don't see the problem, won't Daniel love the promotion? Plus, I think it's cool that there'll be a new station or something.

The problem is that now Daniel's music will be associated with stealing cars and killing policemen.  What's to love about that?

Yeah but its just a game. He has songs in the movie KIDS! A movie about unsafe sex and the spread of AIDS and urban decay. I think Daniel being in GTA will be great and it may hook a few new fans!

GOOD POINT ABOUT THE KIDS! THING... I forgot about that. I never actually saw the movie but I read a bit about it and yeah, the premise is pretty terrible. Is it a good movie by the way?

My reservations, when it gets down to it, are not that Daniel's music is going to be in "Grand Theft Auto," but that Daniel's music is going to be in a video game at all.

To some of us, that music holds a special place in our lives. I wouldn't want to be crashing into cars to the tune of "Speeding Motorcycle," for example. It's very much akin to the feeling Beatles fans get when The Beatles' music is used on television commercials - instead of tempting us to buy the product, it simply makes us want to horsewhip whoever was responsible for cheapening the music like that.

Then again, I suppose it also depends on what music they use. If it's some of that "Danny And The Nightmares" noise, I probably wouldn't care less how it's used.

I know exactly what you mean, and I really care about his music too. But he's already been covered for a Target commercial. But if that's what HE wants (and it seems like that's the case)...then I guess he's just as responsible as anyone else. So maybe you actually want to horsewhip Daniel.

Well, if you can't separate reality from a video game then you probably don't get it. I happen to like video games a lot, and this is one of the ones I happen to like! You can listen to Daniel's music and go kill a police officer or steal a car in real life too... Would that also cause his music to be associated with those things if someone did it in real life?

 cheesy

It's like blaming Marilyn Manson for school shootings, totally baseless and stupid. I guess Willie Nelson's music is also associated with the killing people and stealing cars, too (since he was also featured on the game's soundtrack).

I don't know if you understand this (or if you have ever played the game in your entire life), but the radio stations in the game, at least up until now, are only heard when you're driving a vehicle or flying a plane. It's just another bit of realism that makes the game a masterpiece.

Anyway, I've said enough. I don't think there's anything to worry about. I guess, you're his former manager or whatever, so you kind of worry about his image and whatnot, but anyone that will avoid listening to his music due to it being in a game like that really has no reason to. They're the ones missing out.

I was at that show...the crowd was fine in my opinion.

Daniel was so into it too. It was more than I hoped for!
