    As the title says, can I use the Classic Controller for a Gamecube game on my Wii?

    no, because when the wii runs in gamecube mode, it literally becomes a gamecube. And the gamecube came out before the classic controller, therefore does not support it.

    The Classic controller was designed so you could play GC and N64 games on the Wii. I have a classic controller and play Super Mario Kart quite happily with it.

    I was under the impression that the Classic controller could only be used on VC games. The GC games require a GC controller.

    The Classic Controller cannot be used to play Gamecube games. The Wii can only provide backward compatibility with the Gamecube controller (notice how the Wiimote turns off while playing Gamecube games), and the Classic Controller lacks the analogue shoulder buttons, so it would be impossible to play any games that made use of them.
