Guitar Hero 5 Gets New Drums, 24 New Tracks

Guitar Hero 5's tracklist water torture continues today, with Activision announcing 24 more tracks for the game, along with shots of the game's new drum kit.

The drums themselves look a lot like the old drums except for one key feature: the cymbals, which now look normal, as opposed to something you'd find on an electronic kit from 1986. Course, other people will say they look less like normal drums and more like Rock Band drums, but hey, to each their own.

As far as the 24 new tracks go, it's an eclectic mix, elevated in this writer's humble opinion solely by the inclusion of "Maiden, Mother & Crone". (The Stones and Screaming Trees for me - AU Ed.)

Attack! Attack! UK - "You And Me" Bon Jovi - "You Give Love A Bad Name" Darker My Love - "Blue Day" The Duke Spirit - "Send A Little Love Token" Elton John - "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)" Face To Face - "Disconnected" Garbage - "Only Happy When It Rains" Kaiser Chiefs - "Never Miss A Beat" Kiss - "Shout It Out Loud" Love and Rockets - "Mirror People" My Morning Jacket - "One Big Holiday" Nirvana - "Lithium (Live)" The Police - "So Lonely" Rammstein – "Du Hast" The Rolling Stones - "Sympathy For The Devil" Sonic Youth - "Incinerate" Screaming Trees - "Nearly Lost You" Sublime - "What I Got" The Sword - "Maiden, Mother & Crone" Thin Lizzy - "Jailbreak" Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - "American Girl" The White Stripes - "Blue Orchid"

    Du Hast & Sympathy for the Devil does it for me. Not sure I like the placement of the control panel on the updated drums though - looks like they'd get in the road fairly easily.

    Nice to see Sublime making a return, although perhaps an oversimple song despite being popular.

    Hah... Rammstein... try and sing that, people.

    'Du Hast' - yeah! One of the funniest songs ever, and I mean that in an I-really-like-it way.

    The cymbals there looks like they will actually work. Not like the ones I get, which fails weeks after I get it...

    I think I'm going to stick with Rock Band 2, which is now streets ahead of the GH franchise, and sink the money I would have spent into a set of those sweet, sweet Ion Drum Rocker drums.

      I take it you imported RB2, because as it stands, there still isn't an Australian release date for RB2 thanks to the morons at EA. If you could use the GHWT drums to play RB1, I'd consider picking that up, only because I'm completely over the crap Activision's been throwing around. For a company that apparently has ten times the man power to create note charts, it's a little strange how they're releasing a tenth of the number of songs... At this point though, I won't even begin to consider getting RB2 (assuming it ever reaches our shores), and I won't be getting any of the other 300 GH games that are bound to come out before RB2 gets released.
