Guitar Hero III tracklisting leaked

If you're looking for an unfair advantage in your next friendly Guitar Hero tournament, perhaps you should swot up on the following list of songs.  They're supposedly the finalised tracklisting for Guitar Hero III, next sequel to the insanely popular music games (and almost permanent distraction of SlashGear writer Chris Scott Barr).  As might be expected, there's a fair mixture of trad rock and classics-in-the-making such as Muse's Knights of Cydonia.

Full list for your perusal after the cut.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock – For the PC and Mac!

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock – For the PC and Mac!

Anyone that reads SlashGear very often will probably have figured out that I'm a huge Guitar Hero fan. One of the things that has disappointed me about the series is the lack of support for the PC (and Mac). While I do have an Xbox 360 which can play Guitar Hero II and the upcoming Guitar Hero III, I still would love to play it on my gaming rig. It looks like I may finally have that opportunity with Guitar Hero III.

According to the guys at Aspyr which is the developer for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, they have decided to bring it to both the PC and Mac, because they feel they can reach a greater audience, since everyone has a computer.

Air Guitar, a company apparently specializing in high-end Guitar Hero controllers is set to begin releasing models made from real guitars featuring graphics of rock icons. One such example is KISS.

The pictured guitar is made from a Peavy guitar. Personally, I think it would be awesome to rock out on a real-ish guitar, especially with the Rock Band drum set being considerably closer to a real digital drum set than the current GH guitars are to a real guitar.

I Can Play Guitar – The crappy Guitar Hero knockoff from Mattel

I Can Play Guitar – The crappy Guitar Hero knockoff from Mattel

You have to wonder how many people have risen to the top of big companies simply by taking someone else's great idea, changing it just enough to be really crappy and then putting it on the shelf for unsuspecting grandparents and relatives to purchase as a gift. Well, whoever came up with this little gem likely got some kind of a promotion I'm sure.

Interview : Jonathan Davis of Korn talks gaming, gadgets and Guitar Hero

Interview : Jonathan Davis of Korn talks gaming, gadgets and Guitar Hero

If you've been reading SlashGear for any amount of time you've probably noticed that I'm a huge Guitar Hero nut. Well last Friday I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit down and talk Guitar Hero with another fan of the series, Jonathan Davis of Korn.

Korn has been headlining the Family Values Tour for almost a month now with Guitar Hero sponsoring the second stage. At each stop they have a competition for the best Guitar Hero player, the winner gets an autographed guitar (a real one) and the opportunity to jam with Jonathan Davis. While I wasn't able to enter the competition, I still had the chance to witness the late-night jam session. That video, however, is for another day.

Jonathan was kind enough to agree to an interview with me where we talked about gaming, gadgets and Guitar Hero. First, I have to say that Jonathan is a really cool guy, he's very laid back and not uptight like some people that I've heard about. If you're wondering what all of the background noise is, that's some people playing Guitar Hero outside the bus.

New Guitar Hero songs for old and new versions of the game

New Guitar Hero songs for old and new versions of the game

Looks like I was a little behind things yesterday, Activision announced three brand spanking new tracks for Guitar Hero II. These tracks are available only on the Xbox 360 version of the game, and only by downloading them as a pack from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The new tracks are all from the My Chemical Romance CD The Black Parade. The songs are Teenagers, Famous Last Words and This is How I Disappear. This marks the first time brand new tracks have been made available via the Xbox Live Marketplace. The others were all from the original game in the series. The price for this pack of songs is 500 points.

Video of the Day – Guitar Hero dueling banjos

Alright folks, we're trying out a new segment here at SlashGear. Every day of the week I'm going to bring you a cool tech-related video clip that I've found. They'll be of all different sorts, with a new one every day of the week.

First up is a Guitar Hero mod that someone has made. I'm not usually that into custom tracks, but this one is great, it's dueling banjos. The intro is a little slow, but it's worth it. Now only if they could get this one working in multiplayer.
