Last week, we told you about Activision's plan to let visitors vote on which of the Guitar Hero: Smash Hits track lists would be revealed, and the first of the batch has had the wraps pulled off it today. For those not keeping up, Smash Hits is Activision's version of a greatest hits compilation -- a none-too-subtle attempt to bottle the lightning of those old games again -- though just like record compilations, there's plenty of goodness to be found in those older games, which include Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

Not surprisingly, it's the very first Guitar Hero, which still has one of the best track lists of the bunch, but of course this version is made even better by the addition of master tracks rather than the covers of the early GH games. Curious about what made it in? Here ya go:

Pantera - “Cowboys From Hell (Live)”
Franz Ferdinand - “Take Me Out”
Queens Of The Stone Age - “No One Knows”
Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - “I Love Rock N’ Roll”
Boston - “More Than A Feeling”
White Zombie - “Thunder Kiss '65”
Blue Öyster Cult - “Godzilla”
Helmet - “Unsung (Live)”
Queen - “Killer Queen”
Incubus - “Stellar”
Ozzy Osbourne - “Bark At The Moon”
Deep Purple - “Smoke On The Water”
The Donnas - “Take It Off”
The Exies - “Hey You”

And now you know. We'll have more as the rest of the track lists are revealed.
