It’s nice to see that people really love listening and playing to good music and none of the trash that seems to frequent some radio stations and Twitter hashtags every so often when a certain band member changes their hair or gets accused of being a terrorist to women.

Anyway, the list confirms that people really love rock music, especially from the likes of legends such as ZZ Top, American Authors… and Tenacious D? Really? That’s crazy. It’s awesome to see that they made the top three.

There are some other classics in there are as well, such as “Cowboys From Hell” from Pantera – yes, the same Pantera that did the awesome song “Walk” that Rob Van Dam used when he was in ECW.


4th Tribute I’ve made, for Mr. Monday night, the whole fucking show, you get the idea….. ROB VAN DAM! Went simple with this, I dig it, hope you do!

Other iconic songs like “Down with the Sickness” from Disturbed makes the cut, along with new-school rockers such as Five Finger Death Punch and the single “Jekyll and Hyde”.

The only teeny bopper content that makes the cut is Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song”.

FreeStyle Games have also added three new playable songs on the premium New Rock Revolution channel, and three new songs under the Festival Anthems channel. You can grab Guitar Hero Live right now for home consoles and mobile devices. Need more info? Feel free to visit the official website.
