Guitar Hero today confirmed two dozen tracks which will be featured on Guitar Hero 5’s massive 85-song on-disc set list. From the legendary folk rock sounds of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” to the thumping drums of Coldplay’s “In My Place”; indie darling Vampire Weekend’s memorable “A-Punk” to the Beastie Boys’ rock/hip-hop hit “Gratitude,” the game features the widest variety of today’s rock hits and classic tunes from some of the biggest names in music.
Numerous bands are also making their music video game debut — Band of Horses, Darkest Hour, Elliott Smith, John Mellencamp, Rose Hill Drive, The Bronx, Tom Petty and Vampire Weekend.
