Guitar Hero 5 isn't due out until September 1 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and Wii, but Activision is wasting no time queuing up the first set of downloadable tracks for the rhythm game. With The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" already confirmed as an on-disc track, Activision said today that five live tracks recorded in 1969 as part of the Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out album will be available beginning September 3.

The Rolling Stones Live Track Pack includes "Prodigal Son," "You Gotta Move," "Under My Thumb," "I'm Free," and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." The five songs will be available bundled for $9 (MSP 720, 900 Wii points) for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii editions of the game. Alternatively, gamers can pick up each track individually for $2 (MSP 160, 200 Wii points).

This is the exact reason I moved over to Rock Band. So what if it's easier. I'm not funding Activision.

Not really sure why people complain about DLC announcements before a game's release. Hate to tell you this, but in 2009, DLC is just another part of the design phase. This is Guitar Hero, for crying out loud... did you think there WOULDN'T be DLC tracks? These games exist to sell DLC. Whether they announce now or on Doomsday, there's gonna be DLC. Better learn to live with it.

Activision really are milking this GH franchise its off putting, why announce DLC before the game is released? thats never going to go down well.

Ahhh classic Activision. DLC before the game is even released. At this point im just burnt out on complaining, I don't even get annoyed anymore when I see 65+ guitar hero games each week. I guess there are people that truly enjoy paying money for this, so what can you do?

Bundle deals for Wii now? GH is always a step ahead of RB when it comes to Wii DLC.

ha live versions arent bad at all ive noticed on gh. You hear the crowd in the game ANYWAYS so like theres no point of differnetiating. Like some of the best of jimmi hendrix was live and thats why gh picked lives from him on ghwt. anyways awesome dlc.

Decent DLC for the GH series? I'm speechless. Might actually have to pick this up assuming Rock Band doesn't release a Rolling Stones 24 pack in the next week or so, lol.

finally i get to see what satisfaction looks like on guitar hero 5 but i bet it is easier on real guitar

"Satisfaction", huh? Most overdone song of all time, meet most overdone game franchise of all time. Still, can't argue apart from that... Keith Richards basically invented the guitar riff with that single.

So is this only for GH5? I thought the DLC was cross-compatible

If it weren't live, it might be worth it; now, it depends on when they were made.

Well, Satisfaction's the same 3 notes over and over again on guitar(first song I learned on guitar IRL, took me 5 minutes to learn it...XD), but oh well, still some Rolling Stones. =D
