The more tech-savvy of you will be aware that it’s been a very interesting year for video games – not least with the announcement of two brand new next-gen consoles on the horizon. To commemorate this, then, we’ve decided that our BAMM.tv Rundown this time around will focus on the craziest and weirdest games involving musicians that history has to offer. We’re all familiar with hot properties like Rock Band or Guitar Hero (massive success stories for the industry) but what about those more curious specimens that have – maybe quite rightly – been forgotten?

5. 50 Cent in ‘Blood On The Sand’
A relatively recent entry into this list, ‘Blood On The Sand’ – featuring rapper 50 Cent – hit stores in early 2009. If we were to outline the plot ourselves, you’d assume we were joking, so we’re just going to lift this bit straight from Wikipedia:
The game is set in an urban warzone in an unnamed Middle Eastern country, where 50 Cent and G-Unit have been hired to play a rap concert. After the concert the promoter refuses to pay them the US $10-million in cash he promised, but relents after being threatened. However, instead of the cash they were promised, he gives them a diamond-and-pearl encrusted human skull as collateral. This is promptly stolen by a paramilitary group. 50 Cent (with the help of a selected G-Unit partner) decides to get it back at any cost.
