Of those, I've only heard of ‘Nothing but a good time’ by Poison.
Not heard of any of those, and why are they all “made famous by…”? Is it because its not the original?
None of them are from the original bands. They're all cover versions by people who sound like them. Although some of the lesser known bands will give their permission to use their own tracks.
I thought the reason they had to have covers was because they needed to separate the guitar track from the rest of the song so they could put in the comedy twinks when you mess up. I think they got the lesser known bands you have in the bonus ones to perform their songs.

I heard for Rock Band and another guitar hero that they're actually trying to get the artists to record them this time.
So what you guys are saying is that a song like “Synchronicity II (as made famous by Police)”, even though it's an original, will be a cover in the game for copyright stuff to make it cheaper to make the game?
