request list for guitar hero world tour

May 29th, 2008 · 4 Comments

They recently announced the fourth installment of the Guitar Hero series, Guitar Hero World Tour. There are a few things that I’m excited about here:

1. Drums
B. Microphone
π. Customizable Characters
µ. Build-A-Song Mode
£. Downloadable Content for the Wii

I’ve already logged way too many hours playing Guitar Hero III, and I anticipate logging way too many more by playing pretend drums and honing my karaoke skills.

According to Wikipedia, Van Halen, The Eagles, Linkin Park, and Sublime have been confirmed to be a part of the game. However, there was no citation, so who knows if that’s actually true. I am tempted to add my own choice selection of artists, including Warren Zevon and The Glenn Miller Orchestra.

However, if I had to pick one song from each artist, here would be my choices:

Van Halen – Eruption. While it doesn’t have any words, it would be one of the most ridiculous guitar pieces to date in Guitar Hero.

Eagles – Life in the Fast Lane. Hotel California is probably going to be in the game, but the Life in the Fast Lane with it’s sick licks would be a great addition. And yes, I just said “sick licks”.

Linkin Park – Bleed It Out. Simple but good guitar work.

Sublime – What I Got. Because everyone knows the lyrics already.

While we’re at it, I’m going to suggest a few more songs that should be in the newest edition of the game:

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow (Hey Oh). A song with fairly repetitive bass and guitar parts, it’s very catchy and would be great for an earlier tier song.

The Animals – House of the Rising Sun. A great guitar piece.

Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower. Why HASN’T this song already been in Guitar Hero?

Jealousy Curve – Black Widow. A local Philadelphia band, I’ve heard this song on WMMR a lot. The guitar part changes up a lot and would offer a good challenge.

Maroon 5 – Harder to Breath. Although the lyrics are probably a bit racy.

Beatles – Twist and Shout. Because I already sing this every time at karaoke, so I might as well keep score of how well I do.

Moby Dick – Led Zeppelin. Obvious choice to highlight the capabilities of the drums, although there are no lyrics.

Pink Floyd – Money. Because this song is so money and it doesn’t even know it.

Crazy Train – Ozzy Osbourn. Long overdue to be in Guitar Hero.

I’ll probably think of more songs over the next couple of days. What other songs should be part of the game?

    I think they should put another spanish song like they did in GH3(Avalancha) on the bonus list.

    I think the new hit by Mana should be used….its a soft song and pretty good….

    “Si No Te Hubjeras Ido” by Mana

    Also…BYOB by System of a Down should be on GH4

    I Really think that they should put BodySnatchers By Radiohead, and Stranded on Clicker Island By The Ziggens!
