More Rockin' News

More revealed Guitar Hero Encore: Rock the 80's songs. Keep in mind that all of the following songs are covers. The game now has a release date of July 17, so that's...awesome.

18 & Life (Skid Row)
Bathroom Wall (Faster Pussycat)
Lonely is the Night (Billy Squier)
Nothing but a Good Time (Poison)
Play With Me (Extreme)
Shaken (Eddie Money)
Synchronicity II (Police)

But, perhaps, even better news is of Guitar Hero 3, which will release simultaneously on all three next-gen systems as well as the PS2. All of the new guitar controllers will be wireless. The PS3, 360, and Wii systems get a Gibson Les Paul, while the PS2 gets a Gibson Kramer. How awesome is that? The game is set to release this fall (awfully quick), and here's a rundown of the currently revealed songs:

Rock & Roll All Night (KISS)
School's Out (Alice Cooper)
Slow Ride (Foghat)
Barracuda (Heart)

But wait, there's more. Those songs are covers. Here are the currently revealed actual tracks sung in studio by their actual bands. Guitar Hero 2 had Primus and Alice in Chains. Guitar Hero 3 puts that to shame:

Cult of Personality (Living Colour)
Paint it Black (Rolling Stones)
Cherub Rock (Smashing Pumpkins)
Sabotage (Beastie Boys)
The Metal (Tenacious D)
My Name is Jonas (Weezer)
Knights of Cydonia (Muse)

Yeah. All of those bands are singing their own songs. These are not bonus unlockable indie songs, these are actual freakin' tracks. You will be playing "Paint it Black" with Mick freaking Jagger. I am rock hard right now.
