GHIII lays on 6 more tracks: Sabbath, AFI, more


Activision has announced the addition of 6 more tracks to Guitar Hero III. The new tracks consist of both newer bands like AFI and Queens of the Stone Age and classic groups like Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult. Check out the new tracks below.
  • "Miss Murder," by AFI
  • "3's and 7's," by Queens of the Stone Age
  • "Raining Blood," by Slayer
  • "Reptillia," by The Strokes
  • "Paranoid," as made famous by Black Sabbath
  • "Cities on Flame," as made famous by Blue Oyster Cult
  • "Mississippi Queen," as made famous by Mountain
As usual, pay close attention to the distinction between "by" and "as made famous by." In other words, 4 of the 7 new tracks are master recordings, leaving "Paranoid," "Cities on Flame," and "Mississippi Queen" as the only covers. We also must note that "Mississippi Queen" was featured in a leaked video of Rock Band shortly before E3 (the video has since been pulled). While its inclusion in Rock Band is far from official at this point, it will be interesting to see if Rock Band and Guitar Hero III wind up sharing songs. We've posted a list (politely cribbed from Joystiq) of the 22 officially announced tracks after the break.

  • "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
  • "Suck My Kiss," by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • "La Grange," by ZZ Top
  • "Number Of The Beast," as made famous by Iron Maiden
  • "Through The Fire And Flames," by DragonForce
  • "Miss Murder," by AFI
  • "3's and 7's," by Queens of the Stone Age
  • "Raining Blood," by Slayer
  • "Reptillia," by The Strokes
  • "Paranoid," as made famous by Black Sabbath
  • "Cities on Flame," as made famous by Blue Oyster Cult
  • "Mississippi Queen," as made famous by Mountain

3. lol wonder if it is the medicine that makes his head shake like that!

4. hate to comment again but according to Wiki, Paranoid, Mississipi Queen, and Reptillia are all listed in Rock Bands set list

Posted at 3:45PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by zourskittles

5. Wikipedia can be edited by anyone, so I'm willing to bet stuff like Mississippi Queen is up there simply because it's been shown in the game... Nothing is apparently final until they announce it, sadly.

6. Mississippi Queen, Reptilia and Paranoid are all official songs announced at E3.

Interesting to see the songs being on both games though... what will be more interesting to see is how the "sheets", or how they play, compares.

But technically, Rock Band offers so much more from the same songs. And we know Harmonix gives a good "playing sense" to the notes. Let's see how the guys at Neversoft do.

7. Tony. I know that but theyve been up for a very long time so people that actually care about Wikipedia shouldve made not as to it not being official. It seems pretty official and according to Mathieu they are offical!

Posted at 4:07PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by zourskittles

8. Rockband FTW

Posted at 4:14PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by TORO

9. I wouldn't call AFI a "new" band. They've been around for about 15 years now.

Posted at 4:31PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by AtomicAgeZombie

10. Gotta say, that's a really solid lineup they've put together so far.

Posted at 4:33PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by polly

11. i know its been said a million times but why can i understand ozzy when he sings, but cant when he talks? anyone??

Posted at 4:39PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by Andrew

12. Am I nuts, or does a white striped baseball shirt auto-magically appear and disappear from Ozzy throughout that video - sometimes leaving him wearing only black?

Posted at 5:02PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by Viridium

13. fuck I love 3's and 7's

Posted at 6:05PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by Jeremy

14. I would only play this if Black Label Society was here. I know Zakk is lead guitar for Ozzy, but I'd rather listen to BLS.

Posted at 6:09PM on Aug 2nd 2007 by liqwid

15. Finally! Ive been beggin them to put raining blood on there forever, that song is perfect for guitar hero. Plus, paranoid is awesome too. Lookin forward to this game.

Posted at 12:46AM on Aug 3rd 2007 by ra1n1ngblood

16. I was probably gonna get both Rock Band and Guitar Hero 3, but if Hactivision is just gonna steal RockBand's tracklist whats the point of having both?

I could see Paranoid as a coincidense but Mississippi Queen? and out of all the Strokes songs Reptilia? Jesus, GH3 is just a RockBand wannabe I guess.

20. The link you have for Miss Murder is actually the directors cut. It's actually Prelude 12/21 + Miss Murder. The part that is "This is what I brought you, this you can keep" is Prelude 12/21. Just thought I'd let people know.
