Between this an Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's ad campaign, Activision is really getting a lot of mileage out of Paint it Black.

As reported by Rolling Stone, the Guitar Hero Live soundtrack will include ditties by The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fall Out Boy, Skrillex, The Black Keys, Green Day and more.

"We've been able to explore some new types of musical style" developer FreeStyle's creative director and studio head Jamie Jackson told Rolling Stone upon noting that the franchise began a decade ago. "Guitar music is broader than it's ever been - so we're reflecting that in the range of music on offer."

  • The Black Keys - "Gold on the Ceiling"
  • Blitz Kids - "Sometimes"
  • Ed Sheeran - "Sing"
  • Fall Out Boy - "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)"

  • Green Day - "Nuclear Family"
  • The Killers - "When You Were Young"
  • The Lumineers - "Ho Hey"
  • My Chemical Romance - "Na Na Na"
  • Pierce the Veil - "King for a Day (feat. Kellin Quinn)"
