      Worst AFI song choice ever, dancing through sunday or kill caustic or something would be heaps better. Very happy about the slipknot, slayer, metallica and dragonforce though that's awesome. they should do somethin on ps3 and x360 where you can download the old songs onto gh3 (remodelled for proper hopo's if need be) that would be great.

      that one hell of a soundtrack. i like the SRV. and velvet revolver, mountain, zz top and the kaiser cheifs. besides led zeppelin, those are all some of my favorite bands. i dont play video games a lot but this sounds awesome

      There is no way that this truly is the final list. This article seems kinda uninformed as well. The game comes out this month, and it has been reported that there will be more songs than this.

      Well, they can like the songs. But I hate when I tell people to check out bands (I gave them song suggestions too) and they come back to me and tell me they and didn't like it or "(insert band name) sucks." Then they see their song on GH and play it, they love it. pfft I would rather see Detroit rock city, instead of rock and roll all night. But it's all good. And Tender Surrender by Vai would rock. I wanted another Megadeth song, and a Metallica song from their first 3 albums. That would be kick ass. VR and GnR, ****ing shweet. I wanted an older AFI song. But I am glad Slayer is on there, and Slipknot (even if you don't like slipknot, you have to admit that Before I forget ****in' rocks). I still want to see The Who, Clash, Bad Brains, CoB, Malmsteen, Zeppelin, and Doors on future releases But this list kicks ass, it has more bands that I like on here and way more variety. Nice! I still want to see Run-DMC's Rock Box on the track list in the future!!

      they should put for the love of god by vai and take off dragonforce, those guys are ****ing gay and idiotic i hate them over-rated idiots who play random notes on solos and people love them for that, now i must go listen to vio-lence...
      HateCrewRazor
      Well my ipod went to hell now because thats like all my music and I've only played guitar hero like twice, THEY STOLE MY 3'S AND 7'S

      No Killswitch? I kept seeing them mentioned everywhere. But I'm still going to buy it for PC. Only thing is this says that it's coming out by March 2008, but I thought it was confirmed for Oct.29th(my b-day present)!!!

      NO PANTERA!!!! NO MEGADETH!!!! IM OUTRAGED LIKE COME ON BRING IN SOME GOOD BANDS FOR ONCE!!!! but one by Metallica is a good choice.. good job guys
      ohshizabear
      You guys, you can't complain about what's not on here. If they put EVERY great song on this one, then the following track lists would suffer. They have to pace themselves, so there's bound to be filler songs on there. Personally, One and Raining Blood were enough to convince me to reserve a copy. And even though I know most of you are Slipknot haters, I'm kinda excited to see them on there, even though it'd be cool to see one of their older songs on the track list next time.

      http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStation2/4... 1/Guitar-Hero-3-Legends-Of-Rock/Product.html Maybe you should take a look at that, I mean, I found this site last WEEK!!! I looked at it, and I was like "Some of these wont be in the game" then today, I went to go see news on it, and sure enough, songs that were on that page, were announced (I kinda half expected Devil Went Down to Georgia to be in the game) anyway, you can choose to believe me (or the site itself) or not
      hendrixfreak93
      the only real reason their not putting zeppelin and ac/dc and shit on here is because they have some insanley strict liscensing policies and stuff...they dont even allow their music to be sold on itunes... also, is there even an exact release date for this game? i want it for christmas
      DeathzMetal666
      mmhh...were the f*ck is SPULTURA(-1998)??!! n'were is VENOM??!! but nvm not bad track list... nice to see satanic f*ckin' SLAYER
      Roybordom
      dude, even still with it being guitar hero and all, through the fire and flames and one will probably be hard. (its more fun doing the extremely fast tapping on a guitar, i wonder how they'll work that into buttons)

      +1 Cliffs of Dover should be fun. I just hate it when they put my favorite songs on the very beginning so they're really easy and not fun to play.

I just would have like to see Days of the Phoenix on there, or Dancing Through Sunday, or Your Name Here. +1

      bret michaels band???? what about hendrix?? it would also be nice to see some seether, black stone cherry, or ozzy

DUDE!! im gonna kill the next person that says there should be zep on guitar hero!!! its bad enough the game makes stupid pricks think they can play real guitar when the wouldnt stand a snowballs chance at the gates of hell. But insulting the mighty led zeppelin by letting those same pricks think they could play a page solo would absolutlly kill me. its bad enough they have stevie ray and cream on there...if anyone remebers that stupid artical about when they said that guitar hero was saving guitar music..NO!!! people that buy a real guitar, get real lessons, and then play real music on an amp is what could save guitar music..and im sad to say it needs to be done...most new bands play with less skill than me pissing everyday when i get up, meaning to say...they make it so anyone could do it. and that seems to be the case. most of them sound the same as some lame inner city 9th grade garage band. and most of there songs dont even have a solo. so while i do think its time some REAL music got some good recognition by todays retarded young generation, all i ask is that you please , do it right or not at all.

      I'm a little apprehensive about some of the bands I like being on the list. The people who sing the version of the songs in GH mutilate it. A prime example being "Stellar" by Incubus. I cringe whenever I hear that song being played on GH.
      savio23q
      How could the not put Lamb of God there? Their big ass riffs would be PERFECT for this game. Disappointed at that fact, but it's still okay I guess.

      Pantera was in the first one, Megadeth was in both previsous releases. Just because they are not in here doesn't mean this is a shit list. GH can't be 100% Metal, hell not even 50%, or 30.
      slipknotfan24
      this disappoints me. no pantera? dimebag was a better guiatrist than most of the bands in the game. pantera was in the first one but that doesn't make the cut. having no pantera makes in guitar hero III makes me sad. r.i.p. dimebag darrell
      slipknotfan24
      no pantera? yes they had apantera song in the first one, but that doesn't make the cut. dimebag was a better guitarist than some of the bands even in the game. that disappoints me. r.i.p. dimebag darrell
      Infamou$17
      Bret Michaels and Slipknot and new AFI and those f***ing Kaiser Chiefs? I hope all of that trash doesn't make it to ps2, gotta admit Cliffs of Dover is a nice surprise and I was hoping Lamb of God would show up again, wanted to play Walk With Me in Hell... definitely still buying it though

      Shit, it sucks they didn't get anything like Stairway to Heaven or Mr.Crowley. i really would like to see Dogs by pink floyd on there.

      Im kinda upset to not see any really good instrumental songs....I was looking froward to maybe haveing some steve vai. That would be great! But i cant wait For "One" Baby!..Its gonna be Sweet!!!
      BlackMagic17
      dude. this is an awesome set list. i'm so psyched for this. and they're still releasing it for ps2, so i won't have to go out and buy a new system.
      heartagram256
      SLIPKNOT!!!!! are one of my favorite bands. i HAVE to get this game. metallica! one of my favorite bands. plus disturbed, slayer, and lacuna coil are all AMAZING!!!!!
      iamk0ng
      they shoulda got seek and destroy as an alternate to hangar 18 (before everybody starts flaming me, i prefer hangar 18) i wonder if theyll do a live through the fire and flames, cause then it could be in the first couple sets. metallica probably wouldve sued red octane for putting them on the same game as megadeth. and to the guy who said something like "spelling and grammer" if you're gonna try and sound smart spell grammar right.
      JRowe3388
      That list is incomplete. And the game comes out this month. UG phails. This is gonna be the best game ever.
