Guitar Hero III finds Muse DLC next week

Brit trio gets three-song pack on Thursday; more Fall Out Boy and Yeah Yeah Yeahs set for Rock Band.

After the original Guitar Hero came out, diehard fans had to settle for playing the same setlist over and over again for an entire year before new songs arrived in Guitar Hero II. Things have changed significantly for rhythm-game fans since then, given that Guitar Hero III and Rock Band have both supplemented their libraries with downloadable songs since their releases last October and November, respectively.

Next week sees both games receive a trio of new songs. On Thursday, Guitar Hero III players on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be able to download three more songs from Muse, whose "Knights of Cydonia" was included in the original game. The new songs--all of them master tracks--include "Exo-Politics," "Supermassive Black Hole," and "Stockholm Syndrome." No price was announced, but previous three-song packs have sold for $6.25 (500 Microsoft points).

Xbox 360 and PS3 Rock Band players will also be getting a more in-depth peek at some of the artists featured in the game's initial setlist. Fall Out Boy and Yeah Yeah Yeahs each have a new track arriving in the game's store next week. "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" is the new Fall Out Boy track, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs are contributing "Date With the Night." Another group is making its Rock Band debut: Angels & Airwaves' "It Hurts" will round out the week's offerings.

All of the songs are master tracks and will be available individually for $1.99 (160 Microsoft points), or together as the Scene Pack for $5.49 (440 Microsoft points). The songs should go up on the Xbox Live Marketplace on Tuesday, with the PS3 versions becoming available as part of Thursday's weekly PlayStation Store update.

Lets face it, GH is way off the mark when it comes to downloadable content. Rock Band has been doing it right since it's release and shows no signs of slowing. I'm a fan of both games, but Harmonix takes the cake in almost every aspect (rightfully so).

Now I just need AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, and Social Distortion and I'll be set for life.

hampster of fury totally agree exccept on stockholm syndrome which whilst not their best is still up their i would definatly have plug in baby one of the best riffs in history

I'm angered by the bad choice of Muse tracks included. Stockholm Syndrome is a decent enough song (not their best by any stretch) but I'd have rather had Muscle Museum, Fillip, Citizen Erased, Deadstar, Apocalypse Please, Bliss, Falling Away With You, Hyper Music, Hysteria, In Your World, Map Of The Problematique, Micro Cuts, Showbiz or Starlight to the other two...Or even the obvious stuff like Plug In Baby or New Born... But hey, that's tastes for you, and I'll still be buying the pack.....Not the Rock Band one though cos while I love the Yeah Yeah Yeahs us British PS3 owners have been shafted once again. Dunno if I can be bothered to get Rock Band now when it finally comes out....Meh...

Korn, Disturbed and A7X are terrible. I used to like A7X before the singer became a whiney half screaming wimp.

ok, gh3 needs more metal.lots more metal. who wouldnt wanna play tears dont fall by bfmv? or bat country by avenged sevenfold? or some slayer would be nice. as for rock band, they need more songs that people really enjoy and would absolutely love to play. im not saying that they dont already have a good set list, (cause they do), they just need more and better songs. if m.i.a. by a7x ever came on rock band, i would freak out.

I don't know why ppl are complaining about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Date With a Night is an AWESOME song. It's gonna be a cool drum song.

I just wish that they would come out with more song packs with one band like A7X,Dethklok,or even a good 80's band....i like the def leppard pack...i love that a few of the songs are live recordings...they should do the same thing from now on.... :)

I'll be getting the Muse DLC but why can't it be free like the Dropkick Murphys DLC? I also agree that they need older songs, maybe one from each album. We have "Knights of Cydonia" for "Blackholes and Revelations". How about: "Thoughts Of A Dying Atheist" or "The Small Print" from "Absolution". "Hyper Music", "Plug In Baby" or "Citizen Erased" from "Origin Of Symmetry". and finally "Overdue" or "Filip" from "Showbiz"

patch-boy

"They could have done better with their song selections (though the songs on there are awesome either way) like: Hysteria, Showbiz, Citizen Erased, Muscle Museum (Glastonbury version), Plug-in Baby, and maybe even Recess!" Hysteria is in Rockband now i think, atleast in the European version, and dont you get sick of hearing it after a while? Showbiz is a fairly good song, would be fun, but lets face how many people have heard of it, save for actual Muse fans? Citizen Erazed is a real fan faviourite, but would be a seriously wierd choice, and i dont think it would be that fun to play. Muscle Museum is mostly base guitar isnt it, with huge sections with no lead? Plug in baby could have been a choice, but i guess it just didnt make it into the 3. Besides wouldnt New Born be more fun? Why have Recess when you can have Dead Star? Both are just as likely. Sorry was bored, and felt like doing that.

More Muse! They could have done better with their song selections (though the songs on there are awesome either way) like: Hysteria, Showbiz, Citizen Erased, Muscle Museum (Glastonbury version), Plug-in Baby, and maybe even Recess! If you can't tell, huge Muse fan...maybe I'll have to cough up money to buy guitar hero...though playing this on a real guitar is a lot of fun.
