Who's cooler than a band's lead guitarist? Certainly not the singer. Maybe that's why Activision's Sing Hero never made it past the early development stages. [Except]

Activision filed a trademark for Sing Hero back in 2009, but the game never got developed. As Siliconera reports, Pi Studios, which had made Wii ports for Harmonix's Rock Band series, was hired to make Sing Hero, but Activision decided to get out of the music business and cancelled the project.

Sing Hero would have measured the number of fans a player had as their score. Check out some of these early images of the game that never was.
