JUST PUSH PLAY Aerosmith's Tyler In a move seemingly aimed at the satirical newspaper the Onion, makers of wildly popular video game Guitar Hero have announced an Aerosmith-themed version. The announcement comes just four days after the paper ran the headline, "Next Generation To Take A Pass On Aerosmith."

"The nation's children aged 5 to 14 announced their intention to opt out or 4f being influenced, stirred, or otherwise affected by the rock band Aerosmith," announced the paper known for being at the forefront of smartass culture. It quoted Max Hersch, a 13-year-old spokesman for "Generation Z" as saying, "We are aware the classic American band has, since their rise to fame in the 1970s, repeatedly come out of nowhere to penetrate popular culture, be it with their 1986 comeback duet with Run D.M.C., the 1993 film Mrs. Doubtfire, which prominently featured 'Dude Looks Like a Lady,' or their 2001 Super Bowl performance with Britney Spears. But we are respectfully declining. No Aerosmith for us, thanks."
