After warming their amps in the basement garage to rocking sold out shows at Stonehenge, fans of Activision, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI) wildly popular Guitar Hero franchise will now be able to shred like never before with the next iteration of the game that will be available this fall. The new game will be released on the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Wii video game system from Nintendo.
Turning it up to 11, Guitar Hero fans will channel their inner rock god using Gibson Guitar's Les Paul and Kramer models as the industry standard. In addition, players will experience an incredible number of newly added features and explosive content including a new multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, grueling boss battles, a bevy of exclusive unlockable content and authentic rock venues. Expanded online multiplayer game modes will also allow axe-shredders worldwide to compete head-to-head for true legendary rock status.
While continuing to retain all the key features from their prior legendary performances, fresh downloadable content will be offered on multiple platforms, and players can now shred to a killer set list from many of the gnarliest rock songs ever recorded. Delivering more master tracks than ever before, strategic partnerships have been secured with all the major and independent music record labels and publishers to allow unrivaled access to their deep history of music catalogs, along with supplying artists' original recordings for even greater authenticity.
The initial list of face-melting awesomeness includes:


Paint It Black (by The Rolling Stones)
Cherub Rock (by Smashing Pumpkins)
Sabotage (by Beastie Boys)
The Metal (by Tenacious D)
My Name is Jonas (by Weezer)
Knights of Cydonia (by Muse)
Rock And Roll All Nite (as made famous by Kiss)
School's Out (as made famous by Alice Cooper)
Slow Ride (as made famous by Fog Hat)
Cult of Personality (by Living Colour)
Barracuda (as made famous by Heart)For the first time ever, Guitar Hero fans will also be able to thrash and burn with new wireless guitar controllers available for each platform. The exclusive Gibson guitars will include innovative features such as removable faceplates that will allow fans to later personalize their guitars and make it their own, and a new button color design that will be integrated for an even greater authentic feel and rock experience. Gibson Guitar's Les Paul model will be the battle axe of choice, and an industry standard for all rock gods on the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION3 system, and Wii. After much anticipation, PlayStation2 system fans will also be receiving a new exclusive shape as well, the classic Kramer guitar, also a Gibson brand, popularized by hard rockers and known for its body design, pickups, electronics, and construction for furious finger fretting.
"The development team at Neversoft has been exceptional, and we've been able to incorporate a host of fresh new online and multi-player game play modes, along with exciting content into this version of Guitar Hero that our fans have been asking for. Also, many of the top bands and songs we've tried to get in the past are now on board, and we've definitely got some giant aces in the hole to say the least," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane. "In addition, offering a new line of Gibson wireless guitars for each platform is going to truly add to the authentic rock star experience like no other."

I am liking the set list so far. Good Weezer song. Smashing Pumpkins and Beastie Boys aren't bad choices in my book, either.

Can't wait for the full set list.

Here is an updated list I found online.


bold denotes song performed by the original artist (all other songs are covers)
"Barracuda (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barracuda_%28song%29)" - Heart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_%28band%29)
"Cherub Rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherub_Rock)" - Smashing Pumpkins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Smashing_Pumpkins)
"Cult of Personality (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_of_Personality_%28song%29)" - Living Colour (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_Colour)
"Even Flow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Even_Flow)" - Pearl Jam (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearl_Jam)
"Knights of Cydonia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_of_Cydonia)" - Muse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muse_%28band%29)
"Lay Down (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello_Master)" - Priestess (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Priestess_%28band%29)

"Monsters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voices_%28Matchbook_Romance_album%29)" - Matchbook Romance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matchbook_Romance)
"My Name Is Jonas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Name_Is_Jonas)" - Weezer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weezer)
"Paint It, Black (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paint_It%2C_Black)" - The Rolling Stones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rolling_Stones)
"Rock and Roll All Nite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_and_Roll_All_Nite)" - Kiss (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiss_%28band%29)
"Sabotage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabotage_%28song%29)" - Beastie Boys (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beastie_Boys)
"School's Out (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School%27s_Out_%28song%29)" - Alice Cooper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Cooper)
"Slow Ride (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_Ride)" - Foghat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foghat) There are a lot of original artist recordings, which I like a lot. I was a bit disappointed with some of the songs in GHII because they were covers.

I will always remember Guitar Hero 3! Legendary game that really shaped the future for other music game titles.
