Guitar Hero III shows its chops

Activision has just revealed the first details of the next version of Guitar Hero, which may or may not still be called Guitar Hero III.

The game will feature new play modes (including online multiplayer), wireless guitar controllers for all formats, downloadable content, more original recordings, and songs by the Rolling Stones, Muse, Heart and the Beastie Boys.

Activision's clout as publisher has got new Guitar Hero developers Neversoft better deals with record companies, and the game should feature many more actual artist recordings this time around. The following seven tracks will all appear in their original glory:

* Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones
* Cherub Rock - Smashing Pumpkins
* Sabotage - Beastie Boys
* The Metal - Tenacious D
* My Name is Jonas - Weezer

a good game to make multi-platform without sacrificing anything.

One of very few. Of course, they could have filled a full Blu-Ray of songs to rock at. ;)

All of those songs f'n rock! I am so stoked to get my hands on the next installment of GH. I just wish Microsoft would have let the them have wireless controllers for GH2. That was bull, I never had one single wired controller for my 360 till the Explorer guitar.

Man I can't wait for this game. GH = pwnness, Nice to see them getting the original songs this time around. Some of the covers in GH2 made my ears bleed. I pray for Online Pro-Face-Off.

Meh....get better songs, MORE METAL.

The more METAL the BETTER! =P Beastie Boys???

Metallica, Pantera, Slayer, Slipknot, AC/DC, Lamb of God, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Kentucky Headhunters, Motley Crue, Elvis, Kiss, Primus, God Smack, W.A.S.P, Megadeth, fill the blanks... ROCK-ON, DUDES.

Knights of Cydonia! That is my favorite Muse song; I'm happy :-)I'm surprised they didn't go with Hysteria though... that would have been such a fun base-line for co-op.

Agreed. This song is amazing. I think it will be interesting to see what they can do with this song. Kind of sounds like Queen at some points too.
