All 93 songs for DJ Hero

Posted by: John at 10/6/2009 7:59 AM
DJ Hero's one of those games where I initially didn't like the premise but seeing it in person at E3, I think it changed my mind a little. I'm still not too sold on the concept but the person who demonstrated it looked like he was having a lot of fun and to be able to play with another person using a guitar looks kind of cool.

I guess I'll have to see when I get my hands on it but here are all 93 songs that will be available on the game. There are, of course, repeats just different secondary tracks and some different mixes but I guess you can technically say it has 93 songs on there with the changes. 


Hailed in the press as one of the most fun, innovative and highly-anticipated games of the year, Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today dropped the needle on DJ Hero’s™ full set list featuring 93 exclusive mixes from the biggest stars in hip hop, R&B, rock, pop and dance and created by some of the greatest DJs of all time. On October 27th, living room legends and budding superstar DJs alike will start the party off right with an unprecedented array of talent DJs including DJ AM, Cut Chemist, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Jazzy Jeff, J. Period, DJ Shadow and DJ Z-Trip spinning tracks from JAY-Z to Eminem; Daft Punk to Black Eyed Peas; Rihanna to The Killers; Kid Cudi to Gwen Stefani; and Marvin Gaye to Beastie Boys.
