Hendrix and Queen rock Guitar Hero World Tour DLC

"Foxy Lady" virtuoso debuts latest track pack March 19, followed by set from "Fat Bottomed Girls" crew a week later; two Euro-centric packs also due in March.

Activision has announced that Hendrix and Queen will soon be available in two new downloadable track packs for Guitar Hero World Tour. Hendrix fans will now be able to jam along to "Freedom," "Angel," and the live Woodstock version of "Foxy Lady" from March 19. Wii owners will also be able to download the first Hendrix track pack--which includes "If 6 was 9," "Little Wing," and "Fire"--as singles on March 19.

Queen fans will be in for a treat with a new three-song track pack containing "We Are the Champions," "Fat Bottomed Girls," and "C-lebrity" from the 2008 album The Cosmos Rocks with Paul Rodgers. The Queen pack is expected to arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii on March 26.

Activision also announced today that two brand-new European track packs will be available for download in March. The first features "Break It Out" by Italian pop-punk band Vanilla Sky, "In the Shadows" by The Rasmus, and "C'est Comme Ca" from French duo Les Rita Mitsouko, and it will be available March 5. The second track pack--out March 19--will include "What Have You Done" from Within Temptation, "Hier Kommt Alex" from Die Toten Hosen, and "Carolina" from Spanish outfit M-Clan. Additionally, a brand-new recording of the James Bond theme will be made available.

The European track packs and James Bond theme will be available as singles on Xbox Live for 160 Microsoft points, or £1.59 ($2.25) on the PSN. The Hendrix and Queen track packs will be available for 440 Microsoft points on Live and for £3.99 ($5.60) on PSN. Wii owners will have to fork out 200 Wii points ($2) each for the Hendrix tracks.

Glade Gnarr, some within temptation would be nice wouldn't it. I dont think many people here in the US have heard of them though.

I liked the first Hendrix pack, though I've always thought Little Wing is too short - it seems to end abruptly, just when it starts to get going, and If 6 was 9 is a good song, but not the sort of song I'm dying to play when I think of Hendrix tunes. I've even never heard of Angel and Freedom, though Foxy Lady is one of the greats.

A reply to chrono_wind. Yh that is what I am trying to say. And the guitar and drums will be way too easy to play. And GreggD. They haven't been doing metal only, actually.

Sweetness, this is going to be awesome/ Edit: The Hendrix pack I meant, Queen with Paul Rogers? No thanks, much prefer the original artist, I want Freddy Mercury!

When I said "Queen," what I meant was "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Why do they always pick the crap Hendrix songs? I'd rather have a Band of Gypsys full album and pay way too much for it than get a deal on some standard greatest hits album fluff.

WTF Activision? No Within Temptation for the Wii, you suck.

Why haven't they added Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Child (Slight Return) that song is guitar heaven, Id like to see some Guns N' Roses,Dokken,The Doors,Megadeth and Van Halen added too

@chronowind: Hate to break it to you, but all Guitar Hero has been doing is metal, so I really don't see why you need to complain. Also, Queen - Freddy Mercury = *shutter*

"Oh dear 14 thumbs down on my comment. What is seriously wrong with what I said? You have to admit the GH:WT DLC is awful the only decent songs are the metallica tracks. FACT. I mean Jimi Hendrix has written brilliant songs but Queen... The lead singer is a legend and I respect them but their songs wouldn't be fun to play. WE NEED MORE METAL!!!!! RELEASE SOME SLIPKNOT, SLAYER, MEGADETH, AND EVILE TRACKS!!!! PLEASE! And for your information VanSulis I do like MOST classic rock songs BUT I prefer listening to metal as it is amzing. End of..." So you're saying it's not fun to yell on top of your lungs like Freddie Mercury during his high notes?

"Queen...probably one of the best Rock bands of all time...it's about time we had more Queen to play. Freddie Mercury maybe dead, but he will live on forever!!!" His singing ability was unbelievable.

If they do put metal in GH or RB it shouldn't be metalcore or nu metal. True death metal and black metal like Death, Autopsy, Gorguts, Pestilence, Emperor, and Burzum.

Forget Trivium. I want some Killswitch Engage and some Underoath.

Sounds like good news, I've been waiting for some Queen. However, like a couple people have said, there should be more Metal tracks in there.....Trivium anyone? :D

Nice to see Queen tracks on there. Vanilla Sky are also cool, you should check out thier Umbrella cover, make the original sound like the crap it is.

i am stoked about more Hendrix dlc, but where is my song All Along the Watchtower? That has to come! Im glad were getting Queen too, i wouldnt fret over the selections cuz im sure more is to come :) by the way willy-wilks, the old rock is not rubbish, its the fundation of rock. if you dont like it-- fine but dont disrepect the genre. I, too, wouldnt mind more metal but im not bashing the genre.

Willy-Wilks_777

I DON'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THIS OLD ROCK MUSIC RUBBISH!!!! RELEASE MORE METAL TRACKS FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. GIVE US SOMETHING FUN TO PLAY!!!!! JESUS! I like Jimi Hendrix though...

Glad to finally see some Queen songs in GH/RB, but unfortunately not the best songs to pick. Also, it' a bit odd that they're releasing "Hier Kommt Alex" again. That was in the previous GH game, so it's a bit sudden to see it again. On a more positive note, I'm glad to finally see The Rasmus and Within Temptation make their debuts! :) I'd love to see Nightwish release some DLC next.

I've been disappointed with DLC thus far. I only have a couple downloaded. There is just too many modern crap in there. I prefer GH over Rock Band, but if I want my favourite artists on DLC, Rock Band delivers.

Queen? Nice. The right songs? No World Tour isn't doing a good job with DLC, and I want Muse track packs..
