Guitar Hero Live Adds 24 More Classics and Thrashers
Activsion's Guitar Hero Live was announced late last month, but the development team has been slowly rolling out new details on what songs and artists to expect.
FreeStyle announced 24 new tracks from the upcoming Guitar Hero reboot, with 11 coming from artists making their Guitar Hero Live debut.
Judas Priest - "Breaking the Law"
Pantera - "Cowboys From Hell"
Alter Bridge - "Cry of Achilles"
Rage Against the Machine - "Guerrilla Radio"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Higher Ground"
Sleigh Bells - "Bitter Rivals"
System of a Down - "Chop Suey!"
Black Veil Brides - "In The End"
The Pretty Reckless - "Going to Hell"
Broken Bells - "Leave it Alone"
Alt-J - "Left Hand Free"
The other 13 come from artists already announced for Guitar Hero Live, but without the tracks to back them up.
The Rolling Stones - "Paint it Black"
My Chemical Romance - "Na Na Na"
Fall Out Boy - "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)"
Green Day - "Nuclear Family"
Pierce the Veil - "King for a Day (feat. Kellin Quinn)"
Blitz Kids - "Sometimes"
The Black Keys - "Gold on the Ceiling"
The Killers - "When You Were Young"
Gary Clark Jr. - "Don't Owe You a Thang"
The War on Drugs - "Under The Pressure"
The Lumineers - "Ho Hey"
Ed Sheeran - "Sing"
Skrillex - "Bangarang"
That's a pretty diverse line-up, and with a roster of songs Activision is boasting will reach in the hundreds on day one, that's important. Previous entries in any of the big music games making their returns in 2015 offered a lot of songs on day one, but hundreds? That's an impressive benchmark to set, and we can only hope that a fair share are available in-game immediately without the need for much outside spending.
Then again, it is 2015, and micro-transactions rule the world. At least just 24 tracks into the game's library, we can see there'll definitely be something for everyone in Guitar Hero Live. Fingers crossed some Pearl Jam, Bad Religion, Tay Swizzle, Prince and Thin Lizzy makes its way into the wild.
