Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Activision's latest foray into the music-game space, is due out next month, but the publisher isn’t focusing entirely on that upcoming release. The company today announced five distinct track packs coming to the world of Guitar Hero during the month of August.

Each pack consists of three songs from artists ranging from scream rockers The Used to alt-group Weezer. Tracks from each pack will be available as an individual purchase (160 MS points, 200 Wii points, or $1.99). Tracks can also be purchased bundled together on the Xbox 360 (440 MS points) and PlayStation 3 ($5.49).

All tracks are compatible with Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero, as well as the upcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.

Now you can play as Taylor Swift singing Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction."

August 3 - The Used Pack
"Taste of Ink"
"The Bird and the Worm"
"Pretty Handsome Awkward"

August 10 - The Sum 41 Track Pack
"Fat Lip"
"In Too Deep"
"Still Waiting"

August 17 - The Weezer Track Pack
"Beverly Hills"
"Pork and Beans"
"Island in the Sun"

August 24 - The Megadeth Track Pack
"Symphony of Destruction"
"Hangar 18"
"Peace Sells"

August 31 - The P.O.D. Track Pack
"Southtown"
"Youth of the Nation"
"Boom"

Looking forward, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will come with more than 90 on-disc tracks, and more than 500 songs will be available in the Guitar Hero Music Store when the game is released next month. Of note, Warriors of Rock features an original track from Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, titled "Sudden Death," and from the recently reformed Soundgarden, who will release "Black Rain" exclusively in the game.

Additionally, classic rockers Black Sabbath, Queen, Def Leppard, The Rolling Stones, and ZZ Top will have their songs featured in the game.

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is due out September 28 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii. For more information, check out GameSpot's most recent hands-on impressions with the game's new Quest mode.

@SolidTy You're right man . Instead of making a ton games with new songs Rock band adds all the new songs they want to the dlc. Cause they knew they wanted to add more songs on to the game set lists. I think they came up with a good conclusion lol. I think they have like what 1000+ songs now?

As much as I dislike Guitar Hero, I must admit, pretty nice selection of songs this month. I shall wait to see how Rock Band responds

The only thing worth buying is the Weezer and Megadeth. POD and The Used blow. Sum-41 is meh.

Leave it to Activision to re-sell content that appears in previous Guitar Hero's - "Fat Lip", "Hangar 18", "Symphony of Destruction".
