Increasingly Poor Music Game Releases Underwhelming Track List Shocker

Guitar Hero is one of my true gaming loves. Despite coming onto the scene fairly late (GH3 was the first one I owned), I enjoyed the idea of mashing buttons in time with music. I think we can all agree, however, that the first two games had the best soundtrack. After them, each game was increasingly bad to the point that the most recent one, World Tour, included Coldplay on its track list (nothing against Coldplay, but on a Guitar Hero game? Really?). Now news of Guitar Hero 5 has started to become available, with 24 of the game’s songs revealed. Here they are:

Band Of Horses – “Cigarettes, Wedding Bands”  
Beastie Boys
– “Gratitude”
Beck – “Gamma Ray”
Billy Squier – “Lonely Is The Night”
Blur – “Song 2”
Bob Dylan – “All Along The Watchtower”
Children Of Bodom – “Done With Everything, Die For Nothing”
Coldplay – “In My Place”
Darkest Hour – “Demon(s)”
David Bowie – “Fame”
Deep Purple – “Woman From Tokyo (’99 Remix)”
Elliott Smith – “L.A.”
Iggy Pop – “Lust For Life (Live)”
Jeff Beck – “Scatterbrain (Live)”
John Mellencamp – “Hurts So Good”
Kings Of Leon – “Sex On Fire”
Queens Of The Stone Age – “Make It Wit Chu”
Rose Hill Drive – “Sneak Out”
Santana – “No One To Depend On (Live)”
The Bronx – “Six Days A Week”
Thrice – “Deadbolt”
Tom Petty – “Runnin’ Down A Dream”
Vampire Weekend – “A-Punk”
Wolfmother – “Back Round”

Not exactly bad, per se, but I can’t see any song on there that makes me want to buy the game. Sure, I’d enjoy playing Blur and Bob Dylan, but more than I’d hate having to play though the dreadfully overplayed Sex On Fire (It’s really not that good a song.)? Debatable.
