New songs announced for Band Hero

Bowie! Benatar! Gaye! Evanescence. 

Activision has written down some of the songs set to appear in Band Hero later this year.

As it's a pop spin-off, the likes of Hilary Duff, The Kooks and Robbie Williams are expected. However, Activision is also recruiting David Bowie and Roy Orbison to ensnare an older generation.

Band Hero is due out this autumn on DS, PS3, PS2, Wii and Xbox 360. Each of those will get new and slightly-improved instruments - as announced yesterday - although there's no concrete date nor price to go by just yet.
