Guitar Hero Smash Hits: Activision lays track down


guitar-hero-smash-hits.jpgActivision has given Guitar Hero addicts more ways to part with their cash by announcing more tracks for their June 16th release of Guitar Hero Smash Hits. The game, which sounds horribly like a teen magazine, sees the relaunch of a batch of songs from previous editions of Guitar Hero and this time it’s the turn of the second pack’s resurrection.

This list as follows is:

Avenged Sevenfold – “Beast And The Harlot”
Rage Against The Machine – “Killing In The Name”
Rush – “YYZ”
Lynyrd Skynyrd – “Free Bird”
Wolfmother – “Woman”
Foo Fighters – “Monkey Wrench”
Iron Maiden – “The Trooper”
Nirvana – “Heart-Shaped Box”
Lamb of God – “Laid To Rest”
The Police – “Message In A Bottle”
Danzig – “Mother”
Kansas – “Carry On Wayward Son”
Stone Temple Pilots – “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart”
Warrant – “Cherry Pie”
Alice in Chains – “Them Bones”
Jane’s Addiction – “Stop!”
The Sword – “Freya”
Reverend Horton Heat – “Psychobilly Freakout”
Motley Crue- “Shout At The Devil”

Previously announced tunes:

Pantera – “Cowboys From Hell (Live)”
Franz Ferdinand – “Take Me Out”
Queens of the Stone Age – “No One Knows”
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts – “I Love Rock N’ Roll”
Incubus – “Stellar”
Boston – “More Than A Feeling”
White Zombie – “Thunder Kiss ’65”
Blue Oyster Cult – “Godzilla”
Helmet – “Unsung (Live)”
Queen – “Killer Queen”
The Exies – “Hey You”
Ozzy Osbourne – “Bark At The Moon”
Deep Purple – “Smoke On The Water”
The Donnas – “Take It Off”
Twisted Sister – “I Wanna Rock”
Poison – “Nothin But A Good Time”
Heart – “Barracuda”
DragonForce – “Through the Fire and Flames”

As usual there’s a frustrating mix of jaw droppers and those I couldn’t give a monkey’s about. “Killing in the Name” and “No One Know” are probably enough on their own for me to part with my cash but there’s still plenty of treats in the shape of “Smoke on the Water”, “Message in a Bottle” and all those others that I don’t know I know. Rock on.
