A condition caused by playing too much Guitar Hero or Rock Band with short-term and long-term effects. Symptoms include:
1. Temporary visual distortion of everything off-screen, caused by the vertical motion of the game, causing a trippy, disorienting effect
2. Soreness of the wrists and shoulders from extreme strumming and fingering.
3. Having a knowledge of rock
limited only to the songs featured in Guitar Hero.

3. Friend: "You know Even Flow by Pearl Jam
? That's my favorite band!"
You: "Yeah, but it's only because I played Guitar Hero."
