Guitar Hero ... III?

More news about Guitar Hero III. That's not the official name yet, just what the kids on the street are calling it. And not to be confused with Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s.

Anyway, as we've stated before, it will be released on the PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. It will feature wireless guitar controllers, new play modes, online multiplayer and downloadable content. The guitars will have removable faceplates.

However, now some of the songs that will be playable have been named. These will be played and sung by the original artists:
  • The Rolling Stones - "Paint It Black"
  • Smashing Pumpkins - "Cherub Rock"
  • Beastie Boys - "Sabotage"
  • Tenacious D - "The Metal"
  • Weezer - "My Name is Jonas"
  • Muse - "Knights of Cydonia"
  • Living Colour - "Cult of Personality"
The developers have also acquired the rights to four songs that will be performed by cover artists:
  • Kiss - "Rock And Roll All Nite"
  • Alice Cooper - "School's Out"
  • Fog Hat - "Slow Ride"
  • Heart - "Barracuda"
