Band Hero was initially billed as the Guitar Hero game for the family, as they looked to take Guitar Hero itself down a more rocky road. I say initially, because looking at the partial set list revealed today by the behemoth publisher, I have no idea what their direction is with the title. Joining Taylor Swift, Lily Allen, Carl Douglas and Don McLean are artists like David Bowie, Evanescence, Counting Crows and Fallout Boy. Colour me confused.

The new and previously announced tracks are follows:

Available for Band Hero console:
• The Airborne Toxic Event - "Gasoline"
• Big Country - "In a Big Country"
• The Bravery - "Believe"
• Cold War Kids - "Hang Me Up To Dry"
• Counting Crows - "Angels of the Silences"
