Marilyn Manson is one of three artists from Interscope Records whose songs will be playable in Guitar Hero 3 from tomorrow.

His "Putting Holes in Happiness" track will be complimented by Flyleaf with "Tina" and AFI with "Carcinogen Crush". The Interscope pack costs 500 Microsoft Points (GBP 4.25 / EUR 6) on Xbox Live, and GBP 3.99 on the PlayStation Store.

Metallica leader Lars Ulrich also recently dropped power chord-sized hints that Activision was planning a Guitar Hero spin-off based around the band.

"There's an Aerosmith game out there that's super successful, and if somebody's gonna follow that up... We're talking, and it's exciting, and the people at Guitar Hero and Activision are rapidly becoming our best new friends in the world. You can put the rest of it together yourself," Ulrich told MTV Multiplayer.

This backs mounting evidence from June for the game, when Activision was spotted filing the title with the SEC.
