New Guitar Hero III tracks revealed, Les Paul guitar coming


As we're still struggling to crank out perfect scores on Hard difficulty in Guitar Hero II, Activision goes and announces a whole slew of new tracks coming to Guitar Hero III. Seriously, just look at all these damned tracks (which we have politely lifted from Joystiq)!
  • "Paint It Black" (by The Rolling Stones)
  • "Cherub Rock" (by Smashing Pumpkins)
  • "Sabotage" (by Beastie Boys)
  • "The Metal" (by Tenacious D)
  • "My Name is Jonas" (by Weezer)
  • "Knights of Cydonia" (by Muse)
  • "Rock And Roll All Nite" (as made famous by Kiss)
  • "School's Out" (as made famous by Alice Cooper)
  • "Slow Ride" (as made famous by Foghat)
  • "Cult of Personality" (by Living Colour)
  • "Barracuda" (as made famous by Heart)
First thing's first, please recognize the distinction between "by" and "as made famous by" in that list. You'll notice that a full 7 of those tracks appear to be recorded by the artist themselves. That's worth throwing up the horns right there. In some more exciting news, Activision has announced that Guitar Hero III's guitar controller will be modeled after the Gibson Les Paul, and will feature customizable faceplates. Furthermore, there will be wireless controllers available for the game, though it is unclear if said guitars will be included with the game or if they will be separate purchases. There is one troubling note in the press release, though: the new guitars will feature a new "button color design" in order to create a more authentic experience. Hopefully, this doesn't hinder the performance of the (very expensive) guitars we've all purchased for Guitar Hero II.

So, what's your favorite song on the list?
