Breaking the Law

Some days, I want to rock ‘n roll all day. And maybe party every night. You know what I mean? While my last attempt at becoming a rock…gawd ended in tears, burnt hair and our bass player being vivisected (enh, it was only a bass player no real loss), I did relive some of my glory days in the Guitar Hero games. But now I’m ready to make a comeback baby! I’m getting what’s left of the band out of their graves and into their leotards! I’m getting ready…TO ROCK!

Activision have unveiled the first selection of songs for the game (Thanks Rolling Stone!), with more licensed tracks being promised every Tuesday. As you’d expect, it’s a wide choice of classic rock anthems and songs that’ll make you feel like an old man when you realise you have no idea who half these bands are:

  • Judas Priest – “Breaking the Law”
  • Pantera – “Cowboys From Hell”
  • Alter Bridge – “Cry of Achilles”
  • Rage Against the Machine – “Guerrilla Radio”
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Higher Ground”
  • Sleigh Bells – “Bitter Rivals”
  • System of a Down – “Chop Suey!”
  • Black Veil Brides – “In The End”
  • The Pretty Reckless – “Going to Hell”
  • Broken Bells – “Leave it Alone”
  • Alt-J – “Left Hand Free”
  • The Rolling Stones – “Paint it Black”
  • My Chemical Romance – “Na Na Na”
  • Fall Out Boy – “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)”
  • Green Day – “Nuclear Family”
  • Pierce the Veil – “King for a Day (feat. Kellin Quinn)”
  • Blitz Kids – “Sometimes”
  • The Black Keys – “Gold on the Ceiling”
  • The Killers – “When You Were Young”
  • Gary Clark Jr. – “Don’t Owe You a Thang”
  • The War on Drugs – “Under The Pressure”
  • The Lumineers – “Ho Hey”
  • Ed Sheeran – “Sing”
  • Skrillex – “Bangarang”

BREAKING THE LAW! BREAKING THE LAW! BREAKING THE LAW! I’m personally a fan of the older generation of rock music, which is mostly due to the fact that my father took any contemporary music that I purchased as a kid and used it for target practice. Thanks dad! Guitar Hero Live is out in the northern Autumn on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, WiiU, iOS and Android.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
