Talkback

Alien Ant Farm - "Smooth Criminal"  Could be good
The All-American Rejects - "Dirty Little Secret" There is no god
Blind Melon - "No Rain" Never hoid of it
Blondie - "One Way Or Another" I just played this in World Tour
Bon Jovi - "You Give Love A Bad Name"  Hell yes
Boston - "Rock and Roll Band" Not their best song
The Darkness - "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" Again, Hell yes
Edgar Winter Group - "Free Ride" Uh...haven't heard it
Fall Out Boy - "The Take Over, The Breaks Over" How many times do I have to say it? Fall Out Boy is not music!
Foo Fighters - "The Pretender" I think this was also in World Tour
Free - "All Right Now" Yeah, this'll work just fine
Jimmy Eat World - "The Middle" I've probably heard it before
Joe Satriani - "Satch Boogie" No idea
Journey - "Any Way You Want It" HELL YES
Lenny Kravitz - "Are You Gonna Go My Way" Hey, another World Tour song!
Linkin Park - "One Step Closer" Meh
Los Lobos - "La Bamba" Good stuff right here
Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Sweet Home Alabama (live)" So...familiar
Paramore - "Crushcrushcrush" Whatwhatwhat?
Queen - "We Are The Champions" Sadly, there are more rockin' Queen songs
R.E.M. - "The One I Love" Seriously, is this just a World Tour ripoff?
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Can't Stop" I'll gladly stop playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Sammy Hagar - "I Can't Drive 55" I like it
Seether - "Remedy" No idea what this is
Smashing Pumpkins - "Tarantula" Tarantulas scare me
Stone Temple Pilots - "Down" STP is always welcome
Veruca Salt - "Volcano Girls" Totally unknown
Weezer - "Buddy Holly" Buddy Holly is dead!

I'm not sure what to make of the portable Guitar Hero games. Definately not the strongest track lists in the series. The inclusion of Fall Out Boy alone makes me consider not buying it.
