Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage, has been turned into a character for the fifth installment of famed video game, 'Guitar Hero.'

“They did a scan of my face then I had to put on this weird suit, it was super-freaky,” says Shirley Manson of her experience with Guitar Hero 5.

Guitar Hero 5 is expected to be released this fall with music from Nirvana, Blur and Coldplay.
