wicked foo fighters linkin park lenny kravitz and 30 seconds to mars on there result.

and lostprophets nirvana oasis and a bit of jimi too.

would have preferred metallica enter sandman and disappointed no santana on there!!

do you have to buy the whole band kit for this or can you just play it with your guitar from previous versions.
3 Tool songs, nice :)

Everlong was a nice pick for foo fighters, but I prefer My Hero. I guess it would have to be an easy level one though, not much to do hehe

Nice to see At-the-drive-in and The Mars Volta as well. Otherwise.. I give it a B-

Not the songs I would pick overall but then I won't be buying the game either so who cares :D
I've just read the list and my first reaction is meh. I might have to have another look later but initial reaction was oh well :(

do you have to buy the whole band kit for this or can you just play it with your guitar from previous versions.

Can use the old guitars, but the new ones have the tap board to make fast solos easier, and drums etc you can add in later
Death Magnetic is compatible with World Tour as well from what I understand making that a pretty healthy list for me.
