It's worth noting that Guitar Hero Live requires players to play "I Gotsta Get Paid" by ZZ Top when they start up the TV mode. It's used as somewhat of a tutorial and no matter how hard I tried to skip it, I still had to play through it before accessing the rest of Guitar Hero TV.

Two new Premium Shows have also been released, titled Festival Anthems and New Rock Revolution. Both shows include three new songs.

Festival Anthems features The Killers' "Mr. Brightside," Biffy Clyro's "Black Chandelier," and Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody." New Rock Revolution, on the other hand, offers Don Broco's "Priorities," Lower Than Atlantis' "English Kids in America," and Mallory Knox's "When Are We Waking Up?"

Guitar Hero Live did something unique with a previous premium show featuring Avenged Sevenfold, where the band hosted it themselves. The game also added a head-to-head versus mode last month.
