Players who score both Guitar Hero III and its accompanying soundtrack next month will have a little bonus to look forward to.
The soundtrack CD is said to have great powers!
No, not like lasers that shoot out and kill your axe-wielding opponents (though I was lobbying for such a feature for months), but the power to unlock three additional songs for the game via Xbox Live with a secret code. The songs are "Carcinogen Crush" by AFI, Flyleaf's "Tina" and a remix of Marilyn Manson's "Putting Holes in Happiness" by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Plus, one other little GH3 nugget, Billboard is reporting the game now includes Sonic Youth's "Kool Thing." Swweeet….though I’m not sure how many 35+ year olds are rockin’ Guitar Hero....or any videogames, for that matter. You know, ‘cause they are ooooold!!!! (Like, Sonic Youth old, see above shot of the Youngins)
