With all the songs unlocked from the very start you can rock out to your favourites in no time. There has been mention of disappointment of this tracklist, but it’s always a very personal opinion of the player. I personally am looking forward to strumming through Deep Purple, Dire Straits, Gorillaz and more.

If of course you can’t wait to hear these tracks in the game, you can head onto spotify and play the tracklist there instead by clicking HERE

Here’s a few screenshots to keep you going until the 11th.

This wasn’t the comic I planned to draw for today, but once I saw this story, I knew I had to comment on it in some form or another.

Way to miss the point Activision.

14 year old GH record breaker

This video is of a 14 year old man child who now holds the world record on “through the fire and flames” by dragonforce on expert.
His skills are certainly impressive and as someone who struggles on this song on medium, I am green with envy. Still, rock on young man!!
