Here is who you'll rock with when you rock with GH5

9:00 AM on 05.31.2009 // Matthew Razak

Eager to find out what bands will be shipping with Guitar Hero 5? According to NME the headlining bands will include the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, Nirvana, Blur, Gorillaz, Bob Dylan and a crap ton more that are listed after the jump. We already knew some of this before, but if you check out the entire list you may find plenty of bands to get very excited for.

Or not excited at all. DLC has kind of ruined a release list like this? A game launches with bands, but it will have more bands later, and if your favorite band isn't there then it's most likely coming or has already been released in a previous compatable game. So nice to see these bands, but little hard to get uber-excited. 

If you are wondering who I'm a little excited for it has got to be Duran Duran.

I routinely listen to the Dustforce soundtrack every week. Incredible sounds. [youtube][/youtube]

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
