    # White Zombie - "Thunderkiss 65"
    # Helmet - "Unsung"
    # Judas Priest - "You Got Another Thing Comin"
    # David Bowie - "Ziggy Stardust"

    And from GHII:

    1. Opening Licks
    Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil
    Danzig - Mother
    Cheap Trick - Surrender
    Wolfmother - Woman
    Spinal Tap - Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight

    2. Amp-Warmers
    Kiss - Strutter
    Nirvana - Heart-Shaped Box
    Police - Message in a Bottle
    Van Halen - You Really Got Me
    Kansas - Carry on Wayward Son

    3. String-Snappers
    Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench
    Alice in Chains - Them Bones
    Iggy Pop and the Stooges - Search and Destroy
    Pretenders - Tattooed Love Boys
    Black Sabbath - War Pigs

    4. Thrash and Burn
    Warrant - Cherry Pie
    Butthole Surfers - Who Was in My Room Last Night
    Mathew Sweet - Girlfriend
    Rolling Stones - Can't You Hear Me Knockin'
    Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine

    5. Return of the Shred
    Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name Of
    Primus - John the Fisherman
    Sword - Freya
    Thin Lizzy - Bad Reputation
    Aerosmith - Last Child

    6. Relentless Riffs
    Heart - Crazy on You
    Stone Temple Pilots - Tripping on a Hole in a Paper Heart
    Stray Cats - Rock This Town
    Allman Brothers - Jessica
    Jane's Addiction - Stop

    7. Furious Fretwork
    Anthrax - Madhouse
    Living End - Carry Me Home
    Lamb of God - Laid to Rest
    Reverend Horton Heat - Psychobilly Freakout
    Rush - YYZ

    8. Face-Melters

    Suicidal Tendencies - Institutionalized
    Dick Dale - Misirlou
    Megadeth - Hangar 18
    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird

    Honestly, IMO the second one sucked compared to the first. The tracklist was superior in the GHI, but more importantly, the song renditions were much better. IN GHI, most songs sounded pretty close to the originals, while in GHII they mostly sounded like mediocre performances from garage bands.

    As much money as the first one and the second one have made, do you think they'll finally break down and pay for the rights to use the REAL songs for GH3? I'm assuming licensing fees are the reason they use covers, right?

    I'd imagine it would be more an issue of getting a hold of the multitrack recordings (since they have to be able to bleep out the guitar or bass when you eff up), but I'm sure they end up paying an arm and a leg no matter what.

    I'm guessing that's why you end up with a piece of **** Stone's song like Can't You Hear Me Knockin' instead of something cool like paint it black or brown sugar. No extra $$$ for the really good songs. I'm sure you're right though that the original recordings would be MUCH more expensive.

    If you have a chipped PS2 you can add in whatever song you want and do a custom note map, then burn it to a dvd. I only looked at the steps once, and the guy claims it's not that hard but it looked like a bitch to me, and I'm a unix sys admin for a living.

    Here are the steps:

    I tried playing GH2 (360 version) yesterday at Best Buy and I can say that to me it's a lot easier to play a real guitar. Anyone feel the same way or is GH in general something that you have to get used to?

    I've played guitar for 20 years and there's something about it that is WAY harder to me. I'm fine on the lower two levels but once you have to start switching positions to the sixth note and back, it really ****s me up.

    I'm sure it's because with a real guitar, you can slow it down and figure out where it's appropriate to switch positions & back & forth but here the notes are just flying at you, but it really screws with me...
