    No Barracuda??? Shame on you! Not cool! I’d like to see Barracuda, and possibly Back in Black by ACDC, and a GOOD Stones song, Brown Sugar sucks majorly. How about Satisfaction instead of Brown Sugar? Yikes! And maybe instead of anything Metallica (which IMHO sucks), how about either another Aerosmith or Beastie Boys? Jeez, your list beggars belief. I hate it, trust me!


  2. What I learned today…

    This is a straight-up link post, but the mood has struck me. Deal.

    Led Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven is the best. air. guitar. solo. evar.
    More fodder for my Guitar Hero 2 setlist, I suppose.
    The Beatles were cool, even in 1962
    Demo cover track…

    I think that at least one Iron maiden and Helloween song should be in GH2

    Maiden:Phantom of the opera
    Helloween:Future world

    I’m hoping they can get a Led Zeppelin song. The rights to those are notoriously hard to come by (see the special features for “School of Rock” where they plead for permission)

  6. Guitar Hero II Officially Announced…

    After an Easter weekend which saw my family play nearly 4 hours of Guitar Hero, I’m ecstatic to hear the official announcement of Guitar Hero II:
    “Guitar Hero has proved phenomenally successful! Guitar Hero veterans will be able to plug in …

  7. Guitar Hero 2…

    Okay, so I’m a couple of days late (and several dollars short), but here’s the skinny on the tracklist for Guitar Hero 2. Harmonix released a sub-set of 7 songs from the game:
    Drist – “Arterial Black”
    The Reverend Horton Heat -…

    That set list sucks all the songs on it suck. Def Leppard shouldn’t be considerd rock they fucken suck. Metalica One or Justice for All is a better song. There should be some TOOL songs like Aenema, Prison Sex, Sober, or Schism.

  9. Adam says:

    there should definitely be some pink floyd time or comfortably numb…..stairway to heaven, all along the watchtower by hendrix woulda been sweet ass to play too…it would be almost impossible, but rainbow in the dark by dio…..i dont know…put songs that are actually popular

  10. nick says:

    over all thats would be a great list of songs, i love the fact you have my name is jonas up there, its possibly the best song ever, tho there are a few other weezer songs i would like to see up there including the one that will most likely be put on there- dope nose, because the creators of the game made amplitude and that song was on it, not to mention a favorite on it. its basicly mentioned in all reviews related to the game. i also love song 2 being on there. but the only 2 songs id take off are jets are you gonna be my girl and switch the zep song up for kashmire or something else. but i know jets gonna be on there any way :\

  11. Tyson says:

    Wtf happened, i thought A7X “Beast and the Harlot,” Nirvana “Heart-Shaped Box,” and Alice In Chains “Them Bones” were supposed to be on G.H.2?? Im happy with most of the line-up but what happened to those three. I’m also wondering why the hell Green Day, Hoobastank, and Blind Melon?!? on here?!? Once again i say WTF!!!

  12. Mike says:

    I thought Lamb of god and Megadeth were supposed to be there! They should put Dream Theater too! Anthrax and One or Master of Puppets by Mettalica instead of Sandman! But it’s a better setlist than the first game.
