This is the last set of tracks we'll be putting under the old Guitar Hero 5 game ID, as next month's set of DLC music will be arriving in time for the release of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, which will be forward compatible with this selection of tracks as well as a load of previous GH DLC tunes.

Guitar Hero is keeping up the rocky rockness with more rock than you can shake a rock at, including additions from The Used, Sum 41, Weezer, P.O.D. and Megadeth.

That's plenty of rockin' rock to see you through the month, by which time you'll have a whole new Guitar Hero disc to look forward to, with a ton of new tracks as well as an existing library of tunes.

Here's your August DLC schedule for Guitar Hero:

The Used Track Pack (available from tomorrow):

  • “The Taste Of Ink”
  • “The Bird And The Worm”
  • “Pretty Handsome Awkward”

Sum 41 Track Pack (available August 10th):

  • “Fat Lip”
  • “In Too Deep”
  • “Still Waiting”

Weezer Track Pack (available August 17th):

  • “Beverly Hills”
  • “Pork And Beans” 
  • “Island In The Sun”

Megadeth Track Pack (available August 24th):

  • “Symphony Of Destruction”
  • “Hangar 18” 
  • “Peace Sells”
P.O.D. Track Pack (available August 31st)
  • “Southtown”
  • “Youth Of The Nation”
  • “Boom”

All tracks are 160 Microsoft Points each, or 440 Microsoft Points for the track pack.

Sum 41, Weezer and Megadeth. Fantastic...i've not purchased any Guitar Hero DLC for ages. Fairly decent set of DLC in all honesty, i've come to expect much less from the series.

In Too Deep is dumb to add. A lot of people exported Lego Rock Band.

@5 Please do us all a favour and go andsit in the corner!
Are you trying to say that Rockband have never had DLC that's already on Guitar Hero?.

On the 'GET ORIGIANAL' point, I think you'll find that rockbands gameplay code was more or less copy and pasted from Guitar Hero!

ON TOPIC... Some great tunes here and I'm so glad that GH is getting itself back to it's hard rock roots!!

And how many people prefer Guitar Hero over Rock Band? Hmm, let's see here...

So what if they're in Rock Band? Not everyone likes Rock Band. So for those who prefer Guitar Hero over Rock Band get to play the same songs as those who have them for Rock Band.

The whole "durrrr RB had these songs already" argument is getting rather stale.

About goddamned time GH put out some decent tracks. Unfortunately RB beat them to the punch on most of these songs by a few years. And I'm a tad pissed we have to pay for Fat Lip when it was on GH1.

quite a few of RB3's upcoming tracks have been in previous GH games also, so this dumb ALREADY BEEN IN RB can go either way.

I have both, but just prefer the expert charts (on the highest hyperspeed)over expert RB. RB just seems slow to me. So I am glad I am getting songs i enjoyed in RB that i can enjoy more in GH.

@24: Yes they are. Hangar 18 was on disc for GH2, and Pretty Handsome Awkward was DLC for GH3.

I'm kind of annoyed by the latter since I already bought it for GH3 so I won't be buying it again, especially since they've already proven they could make GH3 DLC forward compatible. Overall the DLC looks good though, especially the POD pack.

#24- Without drums, bass, and vocal charts...

and it's optional...

and Pretty Handsome Awkward is DLC for GH3, so if you haven't bought that yet it's essentially upgraded for free.

but THAAAAAAT'S the internet for you.

Two good months of DLC. And if you don't want any of the DLC then don't frickin' comment about how Rock Band already has some of them.

Nooo we want P.O.D. in Rock Band! We have Alive and thats it. I do have GHWT, and i'm assuming these tracks work with it, so I suppose I could get it on the wii version. Before anyone asks I had GHWT on Wii before I had an xbox.

@9- Really? Your gonna say that the team that MADE Guitar Hero 1&2 copied their own game with Rock Band? Seriously, make sure you know what your saying before you post something like that. Besides I am pretty sure GH:WT didn't rip off Rock Band by adding drums and a mic.

Honestly, I have really lost faith in Guitar Hero. I used to love it, but after 10 games with no innovation to the controller (still only 5 button guitar while Rock Band 3 is getting a 150 button guitar) and that they are ripping off Brutal Legends (after Activision dropped it and then tried to claim it back after relizing how good it was), I no longer care for it. Only way I will even rent WoR is if you can import those songs to GH5.

I really wish they'd put "Pretty Handsome Awkward" and "The Bird and the Worm" on the "other music game". I guess I'll just have to break down and buy Guitar Hero 5 if I want to play them.
