"...I was talking to Darren about Guitar Hero and Rock Band; we turned it down before because I thought it was stupid. I was watching my son do it - him and his buddies all play it - and I figured, "Why not? What the hell? So, they want 'Kids Don't Follow'...let'em have it". "
and here is the IGN wish list in which some of these bands were confirmed to be in

Just for the record, most of this information come from the IGN and AP articles.
One more thing, there is rumored feature that I heard about, but I would rather not talk about it. It may impress you and it may not but it could be provide some major lulz.
