New batch of Guitar Hero Smash Hits tracks revealed

The latest batch of tracks that will appear on Guitar Hero Smash Hits have been revealed by Activision, and they once again look pretty damned good.

For those just tuning in, Guitar Hero Smash Hits is a full-band game that takes tracks from Activision’s previous guitar-only Guitar Hero titles. The publisher has asked fans to determine which songs should be revealed, on a per-game basis. The first batch of songs were revealed from the original game; this second batch from the follow-up, Guitar Hero II. Surprise. 

  • Avenged Sevenfold – “Beast And The Harlot”
  • Rage Against The Machine – “Killing In The Name”
  • Rush – “YYZ”
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd – “Free Bird”
  • Foo Fighters – “Monkey Wrench”
  • Iron Maiden – “The Trooper”
  • Nirvana – “Heart-Shaped Box”
  • Lamb of God – “Laid To Rest”
  • The Police – “Message In A Bottle”
  • Wolfmother – “Woman”
  • Kansas – “Carry On Wayward Son”
  • Stone Temple Pilots – “Trippin’ On A Hole In A Paper Heart”
  • Warrant – “Cherry Pie”
  • Alice in Chains – “Them Bones”
  • Danzig – “Mother”
  • Jane’s Addiction – “Stop!”
  • Reverend Horton Heat – “Psychobilly Freakout”
  • The Sword – “Freya”
  • Motley Crue- “Shout At The Devil”

I’ll readily admit that I feel Rock Band (the interface, the base gameplay, the DLC model) is far superior to Guitar Hero World Tour (on which Smash Hits‘ engine is based on), it’s hard to not get excited about this. I’ll say it again — Smash Hits is shaping up to have one of the most solid track-listings in any guitar and/or band game. No surprise, as it’s quite literally taking the “best” tracks for the previous games, leaving most of the filler by the wayside.

The entire track list from the game, as revealed so far, can be found after the jump. Do want?

[Thanks, power-glove!]
