The June 12th downloadable song pack for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
will have living room rock stars discovering the joy of sex. We're talking about the Sex Pistols, of course, who re-recorded "Anarchy in the UK" (overly-obvious choice!) specifically for Guitar Hero III
. One of my favorite UK bands, the Kaiser Chiefs, are also contributing "I Predict a Riot" (nice!) to the pack -- and Kasabian is putting on "Shoot the Runner" (not bad!) all of which are lifted from the 2007 Isle of Wight festival. Those of you that downloaded the June 5th pack are already shredding to Motorhead's "We Are the Road Crew" and "Stay Clean" (speed/thrash metal mistakable for pre-Sex Pistols punk!) Good, good week of music, in my opinion.
