Seventeen New Guitar Hero III Tracks Announced

Guitar Hero III is destined to sell copies. Considering the fact that Rock Band is releasing in the same timeframe, though, may ruffle a few gamers’ feathers in the meantime.

Luckily, GH III has just got a little boost. Seventeen new tracks have been announced for the upcoming title. Have a look:

  • Same Old Song and Dance (by Aerosmith)
  • Helicopter (by Bloc Party)
  • Stricken (by Disturbed)
  • Monsters (by Matchbook Romance)
  • Before I Forget (by Slipknot)
  • Kool Thing (by Sonic Youth)
  • When You Were Young (by The Killers)
  • Devil Went Down to Georgia (as made famous by Charlie Daniels Band)
  • Sunshine of Your Love (as made famous by Cream)
  • Holiday in Cambodia (as made famous by Dead Kennedys)
  • Cliffs of Dover (as made famous by Eric Johnson)
  • Hit Me with Your Best Shot (as made famous by Pat Benetar)
  • Black Magic Woman (as made famous by Santana)
  • Story of My Life (as made famous by Social Distortion)
  • Pride and Joy (as made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughn)
  • The Seeker (as made famous by The Who)
  • Black Sunshine (as made famous by White Zombie)

The only thing that’s slightly confusing is the “as made famous by” portion of a lot of those songs. In the days of original masters powering rock simulators these days, that’s a bit disappointing.

It shouldn’t hurt too much though, as the majority of the songs in the series thus far have been covers, anyways. With this and Rock Band releasing within weeks, it’s going to be a good holiday season for air guitarists everywhere.
