Activision knows Guitar Hero fans hardcore, and what's more hardcore than turning it up to 11? The code is finalized and the last thing we were expecting was a change to the game, but that's exactly what we got. Alongside the previously announced tracks, 9 more have made the cut, bringing the total to 30. Not losing sight of quality over quantity, Activision has thrown bands such as Anthrax and The Dead Kennedys into the mix, putting the icing on the cake of an already impressive track listing. Here's what's new:

  • Caught in a Mosh (as made famous by Anthrax)
  • Balls to the Wall (as made famous by Accept)
  • Electric Eye (by Judas Priest)
  • Los Angeles (as made famous by X)
  • Police Truck (as made famous by Dead Kennedys)
  • We Got the Beat (as made famous by The Go Go's)
  • (I Think I'm) Turning Japanese (as made famous by Vapors)
  • Seventeen (as made famous by Winger)
  • Because, it's Midnite (by Limozeen)

Get ready to rock when the game stagedives into stores on July 24.
