Activision has let slip the names of a brace more tracks for this summer's PS2 exclusive, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the '80s.
Notice that 'Encore'? That wasn't there before. We smell a new brand extension. This could well be the first of a wave of themed song packs for Activision's all-conquering axe-wielder.
Where this new direction leaves the proposed avalanche of downloadable tracks for 360 Guitar Hero II, we're not sure.
Anyway, never mind the speculation, here's the ROCK:
- 18 and Life - Skid Row
- Bathroom Wall - Faster Pussycat
- Lonely is the Night - Billy Squier
- Nothing But a Good Time - Poison
- Play With Me - Extreme
- Shaken - Eddie Money
- Synchronicity II - The Police
Poison, Skid Row, Extreme: looks like Neversoft is reliving its poodle-permed, teenage-metalhead days with its first Guitar Hero release. Best to get it out of the system now, eh lads?
These seven tracks join the seven already announced for the game:
- I Wanna Rock - Twisted Sister
- I Ran - Seagulls
- Round and Round - Ratt
- I Want Candy - Bow Wow Wow
- Metal Health - Quiet Riot
- Holy Diver - Dio
- Heat Of The Moment - Asia
There will be 30 tracks in all, leaving sixteen still unannounced for you to speculate about and argue over in the comments. Go to it!
