The Five Most Criminally Absent Songs from Rock Band and Guitar Hero (And None of Them are by Led Zeppelin) writes: "Guitar Hero and Rock Band have released an impressive amount of classic rock songs in their glorious three year reign atop the world of video game music.

the first guitar hero had some really awesome moments but now it is all about as many button presses as possible

Rolling Stones are absolute trash. The GnR cover of Symphony for the Devil is only about 10x better.
