Last month, Activision revealed that after a five-year hiatus, they would be bringing back their Guitar Hero franchise from the dead with several changes including a more realistic controller, a first-person perspective on the game, and a more modern tracklist as opposed to the classic rock tracks of the past.
As part of their promotion for the new game, set to be released this Fall, the company unveiled 24 songs (and their rightful musicians) from the upcoming game. According to Rolling Stone, this first batch of song titles is just part of a weekly roll out that will eventually includes hundreds of song titles.
The songs from this batch include Ed Sheeran’s “Sing,” Pierce the Veil’s “King for a Day” featuring Sleeping with Sirens’ frontman Kellin Quinn, The Killers’ “When You Were Young” as well as Fall Out Boy’s “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light ‘Em Up),” and My Chemical Romance’s “Na Na Na.”
The latter should not come as a surprise, since Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz and former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way were on hand during the unveiling back in April.
Check out the list below.
