Warriors Of Rock Adds 11 New Artists To Guitar Hero

You might have seen them in other rhythm games, but Queensrÿche, Tesla, Neil Young and eight other artists are making their Guitar Hero debut in Warriors of Rock this fall.

Haven't we run out of bands yet? I figure we had pretty much covered everything in Guitar Hero, and along comes Activision with a list of eleven bands that have yet to appear in the history of the franchise. Maybe I just got it mixed up with Rock Band.

Either way, Neil Young, Queensryche, and Tesla top the list as bands or artists with names I recognised. To those three, being included in Guitar Hero is no big thing. For a young alternative group like Anberlin, on the other hand...

"It's seriously a huge honour to be included in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock," said Anberlin lead guitarist, Joey Milligan. "It is surreal to have our name next to so many great bands and amazing songs! I can't wait to play this!"

Look how excited he is! Isn't it adorable?

Here's the full list of artists making their Guitar Hero debut this fall:

  • Anberlin – "The Feel Good Drag"
  • Arch Enemy – "Nemesis"
  • The Dillinger Escape Plan – "Setting Fire To Sleeping Giants"
  • John 5 – "Black Widow Of La Porte"
  • Neil Young – "Rockin' In The Free World"
  • Orianthi – "Suffocated"
  • Queensrÿche – "Jet City Woman"
  • Red Rider – "Lunatic Fringe"
  • RX Bandits – "It's Only Another Parsec..."
  • Snot – "Deadfall"
  • Tesla – "Modern Day Cowboy"


    One of the best Dillinger songs? SOLD!

    Dillinger Escape Plan?

    Screw you Activision. Stop hijacking all the good bands like Dillinger and Protest The Hero and let the superior music game franchise handle them properly.

      Whoa, what? PTH in GH without mods?

      DO WANT

        DLC for GH5 I think. It would have been so much better if it was in Rock Band though...

          Ok, that's it. When I get home, out comes the CC and GH5.

          How would it be better exactly? Clue: It would be exactly the same.

      Dont worry, in sixteen years time when RB3 comes out, you'll have forgotten all about it and it will probably be in there.

    Snot? Day one purchase thank you.

    Had to look up most of the music in this list, but I like what I'm hearing. Not a fan of the old rock so much but at least there is plenty of heavier rock-out music (unlike GH5). Should be a blast to play.
