Guitar Hero 5

As a lead-up to E3, Activision revealed the full list of 85 bands you will be rocking out to this fall, should you decide to pick up Guitar Hero 5 at your local retail outlet of choice.

The lineup contains heavy hitters like The Rolling Stones, Weezer, Bob Dylan, Bowie and the Beastie Boys, as well as some left-field choices like Eagles of Death Metal, Elliott Smith(!), and Spacehog.

My overall snap analysis: It's a solid but not outrageously inspired lineup of musicians for a music game. Understandable, I guess: As every band on earth become available in video game form, it's becoming harder and harder to shock and delight music-hounds with choices, so what can you expect?

Now that the actual list is completed, let's move on to fantasy music games... Here's my choice for under-rated band that must be included in future rock games: Thor, the Rock Warrior. The originator of gladiator rock, Thor will eventually rule the entire earth, so we might as well get used to playing his songs in Guitar Hero.

TheFeed has personally been rocked by Thor any number of times--he is our unofficial metal mascot-- and I want you to enjoy being rocked as well. What about it, Activision? A little love for a Norse-God turned metal-head? Do not let Harmonix beat you to the punch here like they did with the Beatles!
