You will know (and love) most of Guitar Hero Live’s newest songs

Good god! That’s CM Punk’s music!

You know what they say about saving the best for last. Well, I guess they just say to do it. It’s a good idea. Then everyone’s like “Wow, we doubted you, but some real nice stuff happened at the end.”

That’s Guitar Hero Live‘s legacy for the two weeks until the game releases. Up until now, the newly-added tracks have been a fair number of songs we don’t know and then some that you kind of know. That changes this week. Most every one of these tracks enjoyed some sort of fame and popularity, and most have been included in previous Guitar Hero games.

Given the proximity to Guitar Hero Live‘s launch, we have to be close to the end of these song reveals. Maybe Activision has one more set up its sleeve, but this would be a perfectly acceptable note to go out on.

Guitar Hero Live releases on October 20. Here are the 12 new songs added to the tracklist:

  • Living Colour – Cult of Personality
  • Pat Benatar – Hit Me With Your Best Shot (Live)
  • Ratt – Round and Round
  • Slipknot – Before I Forget
  • AFI – Girl’s Not Grey
  • Warrant – Cherry Pie
  • Incubus – Drive
  • Faith No More – Epic
  • Audioslave – Cochise 
  • Survivor – Eye of the Tiger
  • Queen – We Are The Champions
  • Disturbed – Down With The Sickness
