More Guitar Hero 2, including FINAL track listing. Woo Hoo!!!!!

Ok, here is the FINAL track listing, according to the Guitar Hero 2 Wikipedia entry. There are a few new names since the last post regarding the track list. Some of the songs I did not know or had not heard in a long time. There will be 40 main songs and 24 unlockable songs. On the first Guitar Hero, all the unlockable songs, except for 2 were from bands of the members of the game developer. This time, the unlockable songs will be by indie type bands that you may have heard of, including some bands from the Warped Tour and other indie bands that that contacted the game developers to offer their songs.

As Bratch said, we have already pre-ordered our copy of Guitar Hero 2 and got a 4 song demo in the November issue of Official Playstation Magazine. Already, even though it is pretty rough, Strutter by KISS is my new favorite song to play.

Some other songs I am looking forward to getting a crack at are, Cheap Trick’s Surrender. This is a classic in all senses of the word and I am a huge Cheap Trick fan. Also, Kansas’ Carry on Wayward Son will be b*#^h to play I am sure, especially in the breakdown. War Pigs is my favorite Sabbath song and it should give me a good dose of carpal tunnel syndrome. I am an idiot, but I love Cherry Pie. It ought to be fun to play, but perhaps not as challenging as most songs on here.

I have already heard that Sweet Child O’ Mine is a perfect song for this game, and I heard it just the other day and it sounds like it will be tough. Others I am interested in is, Freya by The Sword, Thin Lizzy’s Bad Reputation, Avenged Sevenfold’s Beast and the Harlot, Megadeth’s Hangar 18 and of course, the Bark at the Moon of this Guitar Hero, Free Bird. Free Bird should have me wanting to break stuff after a half hour.
