Guitar Hero 5
April's Guitar Hero Line-Up Falls Out Of The Sky(nyrd)
Written By
View author's profile

Another month, another incredibly tenuous and badly constructed pun and some more rockin' tunes for the ever-expanding Guitar Hero library.

April sees the arrival of 70s' rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd and Black Sabbath alongside the more contemporary rock stylings of Fall Out Boy and French alt-rockers, Phoenix.

Singles from Blur, The All-American Rejects and more will also be giving you cause to bang your head or hang your head, depending on your personal preferences, of course.

Each track pack will be available for 440MS Points (or 160MSP per song).

Lynyrd Skynyrd Track Pack, available April 1st

  • "Freebird"
  • "Simple Man"
  • "Gimme Three Steps"

Fall Out Boy Track Pack, available April 8th

  • "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs"
  • "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race"
  • "The Take Over, The Break's Over"

Downloadable singles (160MS Points each), available April 15th

  • All-American Rejects - "Gives You Hell"
  • Blur - "There's No Other Way"
  • Saving Abel - "Addicted"
Phoenix Track Pack, available April 22nd
  • "Everything Is Everything"
  • "Lisztomania"
  • "1901"
Black Sabbath Track Pack (as master tracks for the first time), available April 29th
  • "After Forever"
  • "Into The Void"
  • "Sweetleaf"

Uhm..@18, unless I'm missing something, that's a schedule for a pack a week. So, GH games release songs once a "week"...not month.

There was a cover of Freebird on GH2.
The master original version is on Smash Hits, which can export to Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. So why have it on DLC again?
When these songs were leaked a few days ago, someone said Freebird was recharted.

Yes, Freebird was on GH2. Yes, Freebird was on Greatest Hits. Yes, it could be imported over to GH5, but this is nice for people who haven't had the chance to do that.

Also, does it matter if the song was on another game? This isn't that game, is it?

Don't you think they're scraping the bottom of the barrel? It's like they're not even trying anymore. How do Activision to compete with Harmonix like this?

You can't please all of the people all of the time.

Right now, there's somebody out there that's like, "OMG! FREEBIRD!!! I LOVE THAT SONG".

As for me, I'm good with Rock Band and all the random-ass metal and indie flooding the Network.

@37 - They pretty much cannot compete with Harmonix in terms of DLC. Hamronix are clearly the leaders there, and they make no effort to catch up to them.

Gameplay wise, both games are amazing, but I honestly can't remember the last time I bought Guitar Hero DLC, too much indie music, and stuff that isn't my taste.

I used to be a huge consumer of Guitar Hero DLC. I love Guitar Hero gameplay so much more, it is significantly less improved over Rock Band. But Rock Band pushes compatibility with its DLC. Which means my purchase will stay with me. It is sad really...

@ #13

there was a music game to release a pantera track pack with some very awesome songs but there are 2 downsides to that.. 1: they are cover versions 2: the game wasnt so good. the game is called ROCK REVOLUTION btw.

i would get sabbath tracks if they put the song "Warning"...i would love me some Pantera...i dont think its likely though..a man can hope though..and @48 yeah i thought it was pretty sketch..i like Webbs articles more. and they probably put free bird as its a classic and not everyone can go out and buy smash hits to play that one song..i like it but i dont think i will buy it.

Freebird being recycled again? Wasn't it on Smash Hits? This is why RB is the better game. No recycled songs whatsoever. If I want to play Freebird, I'll just fire up GH2. Too bad that was the pinnacle of its awesomeness.
