Four bands have been confirmed for the game: Van Halen, The Eagles, Linkin Park, and Sublime; the Game Informer preview also suggests that Dream Theater may be included. Neversoft claims that there will be more songs on disk than any other Guitar Hero game, and that all songs included in Guitar Hero World Tour will be master recordings.[2][3] Project director Brian Blight claims that they have "a pretty even split between the '80s, '90s, and classic rock" with a "good amount of emerging bands".[3] The game is expected to have a much larger support for downloadable content than Guitar Hero III.

While it has not been confirmed by Activision, The Answer mentioned in a press release that their 2005 single Never Too Late would be included in Guitar Hero World Tour after they won a contest at 2008's Marché international de l’édition musicale conference.[13]

A press release from Fearless Records announced that the song "One Armed Scissor" from At The Drive-in's 2000 release Relationship of Command will be included in Guitar Hero World Tour.[14]

Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way" was featured in the world premiere trailer.[15]

Blink 182's "Dammit" was featured in a video showcasing the game's drum set featuring Blink 182 and +44 drummer Travis Barker doing motion capture for the game. The video also featured Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith along with The Police drummer Stewart Copeland commenting on the performance of the prototype drum set.[6]


Ok, I know Guitar Hero is hated by a lot of people on UG, but this gives me a lot of hope oddly enough. I think that since Guitar Hero has come out, it has introduced a lot of people into guitar and good music. I also think that if Dream Theater was included it would be epic win. Thoughts?

They should get a Chili Peppers song on there and get Mr. Froosh to do motion capture be one of the bosses.

God, a 20+ minute song like Octavarium would just be hell to think about... And to Flying Couch, Zeppelin will never give Guitar Hero the rights to their songs...
We can keep dreaming though...

I don't care much for anything else in that article though...

+1

That automatically makes the game worth at least a rental.

Since they're including all instruments in GH:WT, I think that Insrumedley would be far more appropriate. No fun for the vocalists, but who cares?

Hopefully, it will end the Dragonforce fans when Octavarium (or The Glass Prison) comes on and they realize that you can shred AND sound good...

Sounds like this game might be the reason I buy an XBOX 360. What I want to know though is how much the game's going to cost with all the drums and stuff with it.
My Rig:

Guitars:
Schecter C-1 Classic (Deep Sea Green)
Jackson DK2M Snow White Edition
BC Rich Mockingbird Special X

Amps:
Mesa Boogie Express 5:50 212
Roland Microcube

Well, Rock Band was $160. And to Baboom, you have to realize that they have to appeal to people outside of metal... I'm sure they'll have a decent amount of metal seeing that they did in the last one (One and Raining Blood and a few bonus tracks).

Screw Guitar Hero, they're trying to steal Rock Band's thunder by doing the whole "NOW YOU CAN PLAY DRUMS TOO!" gimmick.

Also, Rock Band has exclusive rights to Metallica's new single.

Guitar Hero can suck my dong.

Rock Band 2 is out later this year anyway, so I think we can safely say we're nearing the end of the road for the Guitar Hero series.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!?!?! CAN'T YOU SEE THEY PUT IN DREAM THEATER AND AT THE DRIVE-IN?!?!?
Anyways, I have Rock Band and I never bought a Guitar Hero. If Rock Band took the idea that you could play guitar or any instrument for the matter, what's wrong with Guitar Hero taking drums? Anyways, I don't really care for Metallica's new music either.

EDIT:

except, Rock Band is gay. virtual drums are gay, period.


I do have to say that in defense of Rock Band, the Rock Band drums can actually help you with timing on real drums. Guitar Hero, can't so much help you on guitar...

Dream Theater would be a good addition to some of the crappy songs on GH.
Awakening The Revenant
Deathcore side project: Malevolent

start with more poppy music with occasional screams and then work your way into emoish crap like a day to remember and so on.

If they put in Incubus/Tool/APC/Smashing Pumpkins/Nirvana/Soundgarden I'll be really happy

Because the game is called Guitar Hero.

It's pretty obvious that Guitar Hero is trying to steal Rock Band's thunder with the multi-instrument thing.

Also, it doesn't matter if Dream Theater and ATDI are on GHIV.

You will probably be able to download them for Rock Band soon anyway.

there are quite a lot of bass players who'll argue that an electric bass isn't a guitar. should that be on guitar hero then?

Drums, guitar and bass are also used in other types of music so therefore they shouldn't call it rock band

It provides a VERY limited amount of help though.

Guitar Hero is nothing like real guitar, whereas the drums in Rock Band are somewhat similar to real drums.

1. A bass is a guitar.
2. Because the game focuses on the rock genre and the point of the game is to play in a rock-orientated band.

Tool would be win because like Dream Theater, they would be perfect to put into a Rock Band type video game because the whole band is as talented as the next member.
