Older artists re-record classics for World Tour, four new tracks confirmed


Guitar Hero: World Tour is going to be a big game. Not only because of all of the features included in the title, but also because it's making some of the most legendary of rockers come out of the woodwork to remaster their songs for the game. MC5's Wayne Kramer is one of these figures, as he went into the studio to re-record his band's hit song "Kick Out the Jams" just for this game. Along with Wayne, friends Jerry Cantrell of Alice and Chains and Gilby Clark formerly of Guns 'N' Roses joined in on the track. Also, it turns out that when The Sex Pistols re-recorded a track for Guitar Hero 3, they also did another track, "Pretty Vacant," which will be featured in the upcoming game. As if that wasn't enough, Motorhead also hit the studio and redid their song "Overkill."

On top of that, four new tracks were also confirmed for the game, albeit from more modern artists. These tracks are none other than:
  • The Living End -- "Prisoner of Society"
  • Los Lobos -- "La Bamba"
  • Bullet for My Valentine -- "Scream Aim Fire"
  • Lacuna Coil -- "Our Truth"
To check out the videos for these four songs, head past the break.
