My Axe

I’ve been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto 4, but during breaks, I turn back to Guitar Hero III. But I wonder… Where is “Back in Black” by AC/DC? Wouldn’t that be an awesome Guitar Hero song? I found a YouTube video of somebody playing it, but it’s some custom file.

Another that I’d love to play, even though (or maybe particularly because) it’s by a second-rate 80’s glam metal band, is “Round and Round” by RATT. Wouldn’t that rule? Sadly, “Round and Round” is only on Guitar Hero II — which you can’t play on the PS3. Booooo.

Maybe I should be writing music.

What about "Save all your Love" by Great White? "Free" by the Christian metal band Stryper? Dream Warriors by Dokken? "Metal Health" by Quiet Riot?

I tell ya...they'd clean up with old fogey metalheads if they released a game called "Guitar Hero IV: The Metal Years."

I'm glad people don't dress like that anymore D:

I though baggy pants and extraordinarily large shrits were bad D:

I think they need to make the older versions of Guitar Hero available for Wii 'cause I honestly don't like/know most of the songs on the version that is available. Thank goodness for Mario...he's SUPER!

John Mackey, you are amazing. I love your music and I can't believe you are still hip enough to play these games! It gives me hope.

Regarding Guitar Hero...I've always thought, wouldn't it be great for them to develop a program that would let you use your own mp3 files, the system would process the file, and turn it into a playable version on GH?

Warren DeMartini rules!

(that should send a few people googlin'...)

If you really want to wade into the dreck how about "She's only 17" by Winger? Great lyrics (by great I mean hilarious).

Kevin Howlett says

Just get a copy of Guitar Hero 2 for the PS2. The PS3 should play it.

I've always wondered how a classical oriented game would work.

Like Violin hero, featuring the music of Shostakovich, Hindemith, Carter, and other greats...

'Violin Hero' is a genius idea. Too bad it would not be a big seller, but I would never stop playing.

Travis Taylor says

What button would you push for Pizzicato!?


Mark S. says
