Next Guitar Hero List Announced - 80's-o-rific

Just months after Gene Simmons from the popular hairband KISS get nostalgic to promote the launch "Guitar Hero 2" for Xbox 360, the game's maker, Activision, has announced Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80s. The PlayStation 2 exclusive will feature some of the sweetest tunes to ever hit the airwaves. The complete lineup hasn't been released, but the teaser includes:

  • I Wanna Rock (by Twisted Sister)
  • I Ran (by Flock of Seagulls)
  • Round and Round (as made famous by Ratt)
  • I Want Candy (as made famous by Bow Wow Wow)
  • Metal Health (as made famous by Quiet Riot)
  • Holy Diver (as made famous by Dio)
  • Heat Of The Moment (as made famous by Asia)
  • The game is set to be released July 18. My karaoke party, where I will be performing the sexiest rendition of "I Want Candy" that this world has ever heard, is tentatively scheduled for July 19. What is Guitar Hero? Just

    Guitar Hero is a music video game for the PlayStation 2 video game console - although it was recently released for Xbox as well.

    It features a guitar-shaped peripheral (resembling a miniature Gibson SG) as the primary controller to simulate the playing of an electric guitar. It's quickly gained a reputation as one of the best rhythm games to come around in awhile.

    The game gives you all the excitement and thrill of being a rock star without leaving your living room, bedroom or office, and features unique characters and concert venues that grow in size as your music career progress. The title includes more than 30 licensed rock songs including tracks made famous by such legendary artists as Boston, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie, Sum 41, Ozzy Osbourne, Audioslave, White Zombie, Franz Ferdinand and The Ramones.

    The officially licensed Guitar Hero SG Controller was designed specifically for use with Guitar Hero. This guitar-shaped controller is held just like a real guitar and features five responsive fret buttons, a durable strum bar, a working whammy bar, and stylized START and SELECT buttons that resemble a guitar's actual volume knobs.

I'm angry that this is exclusively for the PS2! I want to play, but have the controllers for the Xbox.
