Guitar Hero World Tour
Activision Announces April's World Tour DLC
Written By
View author's profile

Whilst MTV Games and Harmonix tend to announce their DLC on the Friday before every Tuesday, Activision and Neversoft tend to do theirs monthly, so we can prepare for the month ahead.

Recently, we received the schedule for April and as usual the track packs are 440 points a piece or the songs 160 points individually. The content is as follows, however the question remains ... is any of it good enough for you to pick up?

April 2nd - The Pixies
Debaser from Doolittle
Monkey Gone to Heaven from Doolittle
The Sad Punk from Trompe le Monde

April 9th - Silversun Pickups
Panic Switch from Swoon
It's Nice to Know You Work Alone from Swoon
Well Thought out Twinkles from Carnavas

April 16th - Steely Dan
Black Friday from Katy Lied
Kid Charlemagne from the Royal Scam
Bodhisattva from Countdown to Ecstasy

April 23rd - Motörhead
Love Me Like a Reptile
Iron Fist

April 30th - Nirvana
Very Ape from In Utero
Sappy from the No Alternative Compliation
Stay Away from Nevermind

@ #10

the remarks are bad because GH blantantly has copied nearly every aspect of RB and the whole series IMO has become somewhat of a joke. GH2 owns them all and the series was officially dead after GH3. GH:Metallica I will buy though simply because ITS METALLICA!

What's wrong with you people? Why did everyone join the Guitar Hero to Rock Band hate train? I mean, I love Guitar Hero, and I love Rock Band. I'm sure everyone that says they like Rock Band better have Guitar Hero as well. Both games are rhythmic.... and amazing. Just.. mellow out.

Will be getting the Nirvana pack but I doubt i'll get anything else. Maybe Steely Dan.

I'm guessing that everyone on the hate train is blind if they say GH has weak DLC. Because we ALL know how weak Jimi Hendrix, Queen, and Steely Dan are... Seriously, open up to some new music people.

First, the complaints were that GH3 didn't get enough DLC. Now that GHWT supports weekly DLC (and occaisionally even more DLC than that announced originally), people are complaining. I play both Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and both are great games. But the hate on GH is just getting obnoxious.

@#12: So, the franchise is "dead", yet you still support it by buying the games? Ever heard of the word "hypocrite"?

While I do have the 4 GH games and RB1&2. As far as gameplay GH doesn't suck. The complaints come from loading up on songs that either a very select few people would like to hear, no one would like to hear, or are already available on a different game that about 80 percent own as well as theirs because the love music!!!! The reason I have the games is for the music. Granted RB vocals of the tracks are better, the gameplay is about equal. DLC however is a different story. RB blows GH away because instead of coming out with a new game every 6 months THEY GET NEW MUSIC!!!!

Im definitely not on the rock band wagon. I don,t like classic rock (lynard skynard and kiss are exempt). It is all I ever hear on the radio and my dad used to blair it till four in the morning. But what happened to the guitar DLC releases that used to grace me. Where is the thrice and the MCR. Where did the AFI go. But I got an ok Rise Against release so I guess I cant complain. Im just saying if your going to release modern alternative mix it up a bit give me some of that EP CD type stuff.

was that an official statement from Activision?

unbelieveably Rock Revolution got the 5 track Pantera pack. lmao (all covers btw which leads me to believe the Pantera camp won't release the originals) CFH was on GH1.

I loved Jimi/Vai/Satriani/PTH/Trivium/Zakk/S.T./hell I even liked the old Alice Cooper track. lol

but can you explain to me why Im playing Pixies and Mr. 3 chords Cobain in Guitar Hero now? where did the focus go because it sure isn't on "guitar" anymore in my eyes.

no offense to any who like those bands. Judging from the responses, I'm certainly not alone on this.

Weekly DLC is pointless when you release a new game every 4 months that doesn't support your further investment. Buy new songs for 2 dollars that are only playable on this game When the next game comes out we want you to spend 60 more dollars only to have to buy DLC for that too or not even have the option. I'll buy any good rock band DLC because I know I'll be able to play it when they bring a new game out, which they really don't have to.

what they fail to realise is that the people playing this game aren't all over 30 and were alive when most of these songs were created,

i'm only 14, and have no idea what half of these songs are,
they need more "modern" stuf i.e. 1990's - now.

why does guitar hero keep releasing non commercial songs? if they wanted to make more money they should release more popular songs.
the only one there I even know is the nirvana songs and even then only 1 of those is a mainsteam song(stay away)

i know motorhead and steelydan but sorry never heard of those songs.

seriously, with the amount of dlc RB has over GH, activision should really start thinking more commercial.

and actually the songs don't have to be commercial....just good.
there's so many metal bands from the 90's they have barely or never used or they just choose the worst songs from the bands.

Here's my advice:
Megadeth, Sepultura, Slayer, Pantera, Fear Factory, GzR, Paradise Lost, Faith no More, White Zombie, Anthrax, Offsping, Korn, Rage against the Machine, better Iron Maiden, better Black Sabbath and plenty of older stuff like Queen and Def Leppard...heck I'd even take some Warrant.

KISS should have their own game like Metallica and Beatles, and so should Guns and Roses and Queen.
I'd personally love to see a whole Megadeth album as DLC like Rust in Peace, Countdown to Extinction or Youthanasia.

Iruhl, you have to recognize that the focus is off JUST guitar now. And on top of that, they're at least making an attempt to diversify the songs they release for DLC (They have 4 separate European track packs). Just remember... The old argument was "GH3 sucks, it doesn't have all the instruments!". Now the argument it "GHWT has all the instruments, freakin copycats!"...

I disagree with that. The evolution from guitar-only to full band is pretty much the natural progression of the rhythm game franchise. GH wouldn't stand a chance against RB if they released another guitar focused game, and instead of release Drum Hero they decided to combine those into one and add vocals, ala World Tour.

Oh, and don't whine about Pixies or Nirvana. Rock Band has an entire Pixies album ("Debaser" was

bought for the flawless singing achievement, "Silver" was bought for the flawless drumming achievement), and RB also has Nirvana DLC. To criticize one game for including them in DLC, then praise the others doesn't make sense if you ask me.

@48. You said it man. Lack of compatibility for Guitar Hero DLC for future titles is the biggest problem.

Why spend the money on DLC when it only works with Guitar Hero World Tour?

GH: Metallica is coming out, DLC won't work for that, then GH: Greatest Hits is coming out, the DLC won't work for that, then GH:4 will come out, and I'm sure the DLC won't work for that either!

Waste of money, and total fail.

The way I see it, these are classics, especially Steely Dan and Motorhead. The Nirvana could have been better though.
I don't see how world tour copied rock band. Rock band copied Konami's game from way back when and made it not only more appealing, but more fun. World tour seems to be doing the same thing. The customization level of the characters and instruments is superb, the original song selection (and Hendrix songs) are amazing, and the overall playability makes it feel like a whole new game. Now that may be because of the new drums (just one note more, lol), or the magnetic slider, or even the open strum for bass (which makes it hella difficult). Guitar Hero: World Tour feels like what Rock Band 2 should have been; Innovation, not repetition.

I believe backwards compatability for songs has been confirmed, but I think it depends on the game. For GH:WT to GH: Metallica death magnetic is covered on both. I don't know about the other's though but it says on the GH:Metallica page on the 360 dashboard.

GH Metallica only supports Death Magnetic DLC, for obvious reasons. There's been no word as of yet if GH: Greatest Hits will allow users to download the songs onto their HDDs.

But, I DO hope that the backwards compatibilty can be worked out so GH songs work that way. Harmonix had to negotiate with Microsoft quite a bit to be allowed to have RB2 read the RB1 DLC, and if I remember correctly was the first game to have any backwards compatible DLC.

So, this means for future GH games, they'll have to continue adding onto the GHWT slot on gamer's HDDs, and have future titles read those files.

are you sure GH:WT songs won't work on GH:Metallica or at least vice versa? Surely you can ad the metallica disc to World Tour right? If not then well, yeah guitar hero really do fail.
What's this Greatest Hits? All the good songs from GH 1-3? yeah that''d be awesome if you can ad tehm to world tour, i doubt they will make is seperate because that would kill the series.

As much as I like Lemmy and whoever is in his band this week, these Motörhead songs are all less than three-and-a-half minutes long. They should be 80 points each just for being so short.

this is terrible. there's no reason to even read to the bottom of this list. GH IMO has failed so repeatedly beyond grabbing a band or two in the future (GH: {place beaten to death's band name here}) I think they might as well throw in the white towel. RB, as much I hate they're disgusting efforts of putting out ROCK game, with POP crap for the most part have taken the genre in the right direction in almost every single aspect. I know I'm paranoid but me thinks there really aren't two companies fighting, just one big company cramming every thing they can into where the sun doesn't shine on us and taking every dollar we can spare at the same time. Just my opinion...

I believe the Guitar Hero instruments/gameplay trump those of RB, but RB has the music DLC on a fast train to success. Guitar Hero needs to copy RB and just make one universal game that takes all the songs and then when an instrument upgrade is wanted then make another game just to sell instrument bundles(i.e. RB2).

I'm just going to chip in here...

I only got into GH with World Tour. I didn't play the previous ones at all, and I haven't played Rock Band. I love GH: World Tour, it's an enormous amount of fun, and as I am more into electronic music I have also discovered a few bands through it that I like (Silversun Pickups being one of them).

I've always loved Nirvana, so for me the two packs that have been released so far have been a little disappointing, definitely not their best songs, but at the end of the day all these packs are additions to the game itself. You aren't obliged to buy them!

Music is very subjective, one mans drink is another mans poison. You can't please all the people all the time.

Rise Against pack FTW though!

Personally, I think if they were going to do anything involving DLC they should make a downloadable liscense for Gh2 and 3 and let people spend say.... 500msp on that and download the songs onto GH:WT. There are already songs via GHTunes that only utilise Guitar and bass, and if they really wanted they could do an update later on which would add a drum track for another... 200msp or something. That would be awesome in my opinion and is just another reason why Rock Band is so far ahead of the competition.

Will definitely be picking up the motörhead songs.

And as for the lemmy and "whoever is in his band this week" comment... The lineup has been the same since 1996!

Plus, sometimes it's nice to have a 3 minute song or so, it contrasts nicely with metallica's 9 minute ones.

The best thing would be Guitar Band, or rock hero, or band hero, you get my point? A game with GHWTs gameplay and instruments but Rock Bands music and DLC, add a pinch of Tool and Voila, the best game ever.

GHWT = Terrible.

GHWT's DLC = Even more so.

I'm going to go play another, far superior rhythm game that focuses on full band play. Seeya.

What is it with Activision and picking songs that already exist in Rock Band? I know Harmonix did it to Guitar Hero 3, but not to this degree. This is just ridiculous.

@Everyone who is commenting that GH songs should be exportable:

This comes down to a fundamental difference in business practice. Harmonix rewards it faithful customers by allowing their DLC to not lose relevence when a new RB game comes out, which encourages DLC sales. Activision is more interested in selling units of the games themselves than units of DLC. Keep in mind that every time someone rents or borrows RB1 to export the songs, Harmonix actually LOSES money. That was a big sacrifice that they were willing to make to keep thier customers. Activision is not willing to sacrifice those sales to reward customers. Rather, thier (much stronger) brand name will sell itself, so they don't need to pander to us to make money.

Granted their brand name is strong because of the great

Why the hell are they compelled to release tracks no one's ever heard of and that stilll suck? Yes, that's still with 3 l's... means it's worse. I know I'm already biased, but come on-- a little Helloween is waaaaayyy overdue.

Some of this DLC is nice...but I've already got the tracks I want off this list on Rock Band.

Unless forward compatibility with future titles happens (unlikely IMO), or an unbelievably amazing track comes out, I really see no point in buying GHWT DLC. The songs are not bad selections, but I'd rather have forward compatible versions that don't run on a sucky vocal system.

first of all. STOP saying crap about how bad this game is compared to rock band. Its just the dlc thats sucks pussy alright? overall this is a pretty good game, but your judging the entirety of the game by one part of it.

anyway. like i said the dlc sucks. do they think theyre getting anywhere with nirvana? im glad im getting GHM

@ # 53

I think a good portion of what your seeing is a mix of old left-over GH3 stuff they acquired and stuff now Rock Band already has simply because Harmonix started this back with GH1. When they made the decision to move to MTV & the almighty EA from lil ol Red Octane. Can you imagine the musical flood gates opening? lol

*trigger your favortie band's riff*

They had every intention to dominate the market with a "jukebox game". Meaning enough material from enough variety of bands that you buy 1 game and it will support 1,000's of tracks - ala Rock Band was born.

HMXHenry boasts all the time about still all the Metallica tracks they have yet to release. They acquired quite the library from them apparantly.

(cont.) Hint why Enter Sandman wouldn't transfer over to RB2 disc since the GH camp grabbed Metallica but HMX replied with putting Battery in RB2 main track list. Which I'll GLADLY take over Enter Sandman any day of the week. As I'm a hipocritic as pointed out early I will buy GH Metallica. I didn't buy Aerosmith but did rent it. GH games I ask as for gifts, and new RB game I'll buy the day it releases. let me tell you why.

I sit strong with over 300 songs bought and downloaded for Rock Band. I'd be sitting strong with 300 GH songs if they would of done this before RB. I can't afford both. Glady this worked out in HMX's favor as IMO it is the better game.

and for the record I was never one of the people that said GH3 sucks, wheres all the instruments? I was the other saying

err sorry this is way to long.

I was the other saying what the hell is this Battle Mode doing in my GH game? and also what killed it as also mentioned (really what did it) is I bought every track pack in GH2 but couldn't use them in GH3. OK. that sucks but i still like GH so I'll get GH3 and bought only a couple track packs since i was worried and here we are again with GH:WT won't play my track from GH3. WTF?

All the comments about ripping off Rock Band's setlist amuses me; especially when WT and RB2 were announced roughly around the same time and RB has both on-disc and DLC songs that were in previous GH games (Carry on Wayward Son, More than a Feeling...they even have Heartbreaker from WT that was released a few weeks ago).

I'm not getting any of this as the only song of interest is Bodhisattva and I already play it in RB2, but the Rock Band DLC really isn't much better of late; they had Toby Keith last week, and fucking Spongebob Squarepants the week before.
