Good news: Just a week after the release of Guitar Hero II on the 360, a handful of songs from the original Guitar Hero have now become available as DLC on Xbox Live. Crappy news: You can pick up one of the three-song packs for the low, low price of ... $6.25! Hold on, we just choked on our picks.

In exchange for 500 points you can get one of the following three clusters, for just over $2 per song:
  • Pack 1: "Bark at the Moon," "Hey You," "Ace of Spades"
  • Pack 2: "Killer Queen," "Take it Off," "Frankenstein"
  • Pack 3: "Higher Ground," "Infected," "Stellar"
Is that a fair price for songs that were released in 2005 and have already been played by a hojillion PS2 Guitar Hero fans? Or is that just the highest possible dollar figure that could be charged without causing people to involuntarily throw up on themselves? By this standard, the 48 songs of GH (selling for $40 new on PS2) would cost you just under $100 on Live. We'd make a joke that this a great way to repay people for selling them broken guitars, but we already know that it's Microsoft's hand on the insanity-dispensing Live pricing gun.
