Given what little information know about Activision’s upcoming Band Hero, we just assumed it was Guitar Hero with more “mainstream” pop artists artists. Being the first E10+ game in the series, we weren’t really sure what to expect from the game’s music.
On one of what seems like a billion jumbo-tron screens, Activision was pimping all of its Hero games, Band included. The never-before-seen trailer revealed some of the 50-plus artists that would appear in the game, including: Janet Jackson; Jesse McCartney; Culture Club; Snow Patrol; The Go-Gos; Fall Out Boy; The Turtles; Marvin Gaye; and Maroon 5.
Well, that’s… interesting. Which Janet Jackson song do you hope to be rocking with three other friends this November, when the game ships? For my money, I don’t think “What Have You Done For Me Lately?” can be beat.
