Guitar Hero 2 – I’m excited

The game doesn’t come out until next month, but I am all super excited for it due to the track list that came out the other day. Man, there are some amazing songs on the list (my favorites are italicized).

1. Opening Licks
Motley Crue – Shout at the Devil
Danzig – Mother
Cheap Trick – Surrender
Wolfmother – Woman
Spinal Tap – Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight

2. Amp-Warmers
Kiss – Strutter
Nirvana – Heart-Shaped Box
Police – Message in a Bottle
Van Halen – You Really Got Me
Kansas – Carry on Wayward Son

3. String-Snappers
Foo Fighters – Monkey Wrench
Alice in Chains – Them Bones
Iggy Pop and the Stooges – Search and Destroy
Pretenders – Tattooed Love Boys
Black Sabbath – War Pigs

4. Thrash and Burn
Warrant – Cherry Pie
Butthole Surfers – Who Was in My Room Last Night
Mathew Sweet – Girlfriend
Rolling Stones – Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’
Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine

5. Return of the Shred
Rage Against the Machine – Killing in the Name Of
Primus – John the Fisherman
Sword – Freya
Thin Lizzy – Bad Reputation
Aerosmith – Last Child

6. Relentless Riffs
Heart – Crazy on You

Stray Cats – Rock This Town

Jane’s Addiction – Stop

7. Furious Fretwork
Anthrax – Madhouse
Living End – Carry Me Home
Lamb of God – Laid to Rest
Reverend Horton Heat – Psychobilly Freakout

8. Face-Melters
Avenged Sevenfold – Beast and the Harlot
Suicidal Tendencies – Institutionalized
Dick Dale – Misirlou
Megadeth – Hangar 18
Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird

Add to these the fact that the 2-player system is now 2 separate tracks (for instance: lead guitar for player 1 and rhythm guitar for player 2; or guitar for player 1 and bass for player 2), and you have just an awesome time with friends and family.

Come November 7th, I may be unavailable for comment for I will be locked away in Rock Star Land.

GH2, baby!
