These tracks, when added to the already announced tunes (listed below) show the Guitar Hero franchise has now built itself a solid reputation in the music industry... but I’m still waiting to see one of the featured bands walk out on stage and do their song using Guitar Hero... we can but live in hope!

Anyways, Tim Riley, Activision's worldwide executive of music said, "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock features the most comprehensive song list ever assembled for a game. Artists and music execs from the major and independent record labels and publishers respect the brand and have given us unrivalled access to their music vaults allowing us to give gamers what they want - to grab their Gibson guitars and shred to their favourite music."
