Rumor: Full Guitar Hero III set list rocks the Internet

A list of songs, purported to be the complete and final Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock set list, has hit the Internet. The list contained a number of “unannounced” songs, including tracks by Sonic Youth, the Dead Kennedys, and more. The songs were listed in tiered order, and also included all of the boss battle, encore, and co-op encore tracks.

The list (which originally appeared on the ScoreHero forums) quickly disappeared, and was later called out as a hoax by ScoreHero mods. However, a poster over at wins the Internet Matlock award for Sunday, September 16. It appears someone’s been playing a little Guitar Hero III on their Xbox 360, revealing a number of new tracks, all of which also appeared on this “fake” list. Is that fake, too? The plot! It thickens!

In any case, hit the jump for the full “fake” set list, which also includes White Zombie’s “Black Sunshine,” a song that has one of the most killer (yet simple) riffs in 90s metal. How metal would that be?
