New Guitar Hero's First Songs Revealed

These ten tracks are just a fraction of the "hundreds" that will be available on day one.


When Activision announced Guitar Hero Live last week, the publisher revealed a handful of artists whose songs would be featured on the game's soundtrack, but didn't share the songs themselves. Now, Activision has done just that, announcing the first ten songs that will be available on day one in a post on Facebook.

As you can see in the image above, Guitar Hero Live's soundtrack will include Top 40 songs like Ed Sheeran's "Sing" and "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men. Others include "Don't Owe You a Thang" by Gary Clark Jr. (which is a great song, if I do say so myself) and "Cry of Achilles" by Alter Bridge.

These ten songs represent just a fraction of Guitar Hero Live's total soundtrack, which will include "hundreds" of songs out of gate across the main game and the online-focused mode Guitar Hero TV.

Guitar Hero Live is in development at DJ Hero studio FreeStyleGames for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. The game launches later this year, alongside Rock Band 4. No songs from that game's soundtrack have been announced yet.
