Guitar Hero Live is adding 70 new songs to GHTV by the end of the year


Every song is free to play this weekend

Guitar Hero Live was a pleasant surprise. After Activision milked that cow for so long, I didn't think it could introduce one of the freshest rhythm games in years, but it did. But this is just the start for Guitar Hero TV (GHTV), the new streaming music model implemented in Live.

In addition to over 200 songs at launch, the service is adding 70 new tracks by the end of the year, featuring artists like System of a Down, Alice in Chains, Weezer, Judas Priest, Iggy Pop, and St. Vincent. Additionally, a Black Veil Brides premium show will hit GHTV on Friday, which features footage from their concert DVD Alive and Burning.

For those of you who aren't aware, each song will come complete with a music video, or in some cases, a live concert. It's a nice break from the avatar-laden screens of old, and a great way to get acquainted with the style of a band beyond just listening to the track.

Finally, you'll be able to access the entire song catalog this weekend for free without spending tokens, starting on Friday at 4AM PT.
