This Xbox Focus story’s carrying a small list of new tracks for Guitar Hero: World Tour, apparently scanned from an issue of Stuff, which includes Michael Jackson’s Beat It.
- Steve Miller Band – “The Joker”
- Interpol – “Obstacle 1″
- The Doors – “Light My Fire”
- Michael Jackson – “Beat It”
- Linkin Park – “In The End”
- Smashing Pumpkins – “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”
Mark Twain once said, “Golf is a good walk spoiled.” Just saying.

Remember this Guitar Hero track list? It isn’t true. Activision told Game Informer that “while some of those songs are indeed in the game (Van Halen’s Hot for Teacher, for one), the bulk of it is wishful thinking and pure speculation.”
Fans of the series were dribbling over the prospect of the list being, in fact, true. But it isn’t. So get over it.

Yeah, yeah, Guitar Hero is ripping-off Rock Band, etc. It’s all about the music, man. And according to GoNintendo, GH: World Tour’s massive set list is looking so great, even the most ardent GH detractors may be forced to grudgingly pick up a touch guitar.
Among others, the list includes rockin’ tunes from Weezer, Rush, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and – for musical masochists out there – Dragonforce.
The list looks mighty plausible, too, especially with the inclusion of two very specific Jimi Hendrix songs, as well as a single from Paramore, which Neversoft promoted heavily at their not-E3 press conference.

Someone at Neversoft would have a lot of explaining to do if Rock Band snagged the man who some call “the greatest guitarist of all time,” so this only seems fitting. According to CBC News, Jimi Hendrix will be joining Guitar Hero World Tour’s lineup – in more ways than one.
Most importantly, players will be able to tie their fingers in knots to two of Hendrix hits: “The Wind Cries Mary” and a live version of “Purple Haze” (!) recorded a mere year before his untimely passing. Other Hendrix tunes will apparently be available for download after the game’s release.
Additionally, history’s favorite lefty will be reborn through the marvel of technology, as a hideous, unsightly Guitar Hero avatar. Hey, we never claimed this was good news.

Kotaku reports that a survey sent in to them by a reader reveals potential artists such as Sting, Ozzy Osbourne, Ted Nugent, Billy Corgan, Jimi Hendrix, Travis Barker, Hayley Williams, and Zak Wylde that could all appear in Guitar Hero World Tour.
So you could pretend to be all those people whilst doing an impression of someone playing a guitar instead of like, you know, using the same amount of effort to actually learn to play it.

There’s some stuff over there about the game’s instruments which is already known, but there’s also a list of music to be potentially included in the game, such as Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, System of a Down, Ozzy Osbourne, Interpol, Muse and more.
Take a look. Hit this for the rest of the rumours given up by Intellisponse last night, including details on Forza 3.

Activision’s fully announced Guitar Hero World Tour, as you can see on Eurogamer.
This is the official name for Guitar Hero 4, apparently, and – as we all now know – will feature vocals and drums as well as guitars.
Van Halen, Linkin Park, The Eagles and Sublime are all confirmed for the game, which also includes Music Studio, “a full compliment of tools to create digital music from scratch”. Once recorded, you can perform your track in-game, or upload and share it with your friends online via the new GHTunes service.
There’ll also be full online play in a Battle of the Bands mode.
There’s a full feature on Guitar Hero World Tour here and the launch trailer after the break.
It’s out this autumn for PS2, PS3, Wii and 360.
