Tracklist Tuesday for Guitar Hero Live

There are a 14 more Tuesdays to go until Guitar Hero Live’s October 23 release date. That’s a lot of Tracklist Tuesdays!



Guitar Hero live Tracklist Tuesday

Yes, apparently Tracklist Tuesday is a thing. Or at least, whoever does Activision’s PR team are trying to make Tracklist Tuesday a thing, to build up the hype like a crescendo for the release of Guitar Hero Live.

There’s even a hashtag – #TracklistTuesday – but we’re not sure if it’s going to catch on.


More importantly, Guitar Hero Live is pumping out track announcements to compete with Rock Band 4 which releases on October 6 2015, over two weeks before Guitar Hero Live.

There are going to be those who have allegiances to one or another, Guitar Hero or Rock Band, for whatever reason. Perhaps they already have peripherals or they prefer the simplicity of Guitar Hero, but there’s one thing that’s going to drag fans from one to the other: The songs.

The old enemy

Rock Band 4 announced the Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, The Cure, Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne earlier in the week. Today, on – ahem – Tracklist Tuesday, Guitar Hero Live have announced OneRepublic, The Vines and Wolf Alice. Hmmm. To be fair, Disturbed’s Down With the Sickness is going to be freaking epic, though.

Here’s the full list from Guitar Hero Live’s Tracklist Tuesday:

OneRepublic – Counting Stars
Paramore – Now
The Mowgli’s – San Francisco
Cypress Hill ft. Tom Morello – Rise Up
Asking Alexandria – The Final Episode
The Vines – Metal Zone
Wolf Alice – Moaning Lisa Smile
Disturbed – Down With the Sickness
TV On The Radio – Lazerray
Foster the People – Coming of Age


One-nil to Rock Band 4, methinks.

Still, if Activision are going to make every Tuesday between now and the October 23 release date – that’s fourteen Tuesdays – a Tracklist Tuesday, then kudos to them for an absolute tonne of tracks for Guitar Hero Live. There’s still chance for them to pull it back.

Pre-order Guitar Hero Live (with a guitar controller) from Amazon now.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
