Watch Neversoft play Guitar Hero 5 on a stage in LA

Before Travis Barker and DJ AM took leave of the stage here in LA, we were promised Guitar Hero 5 in action. And we got it! Neversoft's "official" band took to the mic, two plastic guitars and two drum sets, in order to regale us with their rendition of Wolfmother's "Back Around," repeatedly showing off the new drop in and out feature.

Though the plastic peripheral performance was a bit less than enthralling -- especially considering the fact that we just watched an actual musical performance -- we've been promised a DJ Hero performance up next. And yes, video is forthcoming!
