Top Artists Allow Fans to Fill Their Stockings With Downloadable Songs for Guitar Hero(R) and Band Hero(TM) This Holiday

Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, The Fall Of Troy, OneRepublic and Popular Indie Bands Nada Surf, Pavement and Spoon Lead December Line-Up

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- There is no better way to close out the year than with Guitar Hero® and one of the hottest line-ups of downloadable content this December. Tracks, never-before available in a Guitar Hero game, from Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, The Fall of Troy, OneRepublic and indie artists Nada Surf, Pavement and Spoon are just some of what fans can look forward to this holiday season. Compatible with both Guitar Hero® 5 and Band Hero(TM), the Guitar Hero music library continues to expand and evolve as fans rock their way through the holidays and into 2010.

The longtime Guitar Hero devout may be familiar with metal band The Fall of Troy from their Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock bonus track "F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X." The band returns to the Guitar Hero stage once again with The Fall Of Troy Track Pack, available for download on December 3, featuring the newly released "Panic Attack," "A Classic Case of Transference" and "Single," all off of the band's October album In The Unlikely Event.

American pop rock band OneRepublic, who first debuted as downloadable content for Guitar Hero® World Tour, are back on December 12 with a three song track pack to celebrate the November release of their newest studio album Waking Up. The Track Pack features two songs off Waking Up, "All The Right Moves" and "Everybody Loves Me," as well as "Mercy," a track off their first studio album Dreaming Out Loud.

Guitar Hero fans should get ready to experience indie rock at some of its best this December. Injecting even more flavor into ever expanding Guitar Hero music library is a three song track pack featuring Nada Surf, Pavement and Spoon. Players can jam to Nada Surf's "Hi-Speed Soul," experience the lo-fi rock music of Pavement with "Cut Your Hair" or rock out to "Sister Jack" by Spoon on December 17.

What better way to welcome in the holidays then by playing along to Steve Ouimette's version of the classic "Hark The Herald Angels Sing," which will be available as a free download on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero on December 22.

Bring in the New Year right with the Celebrity New Years Rock Track Pack. Starting on December 22, players can live it up and rock out with a three song track pack featuring all the Band Hero in-game artists. Players can sing along to Taylor Swift's "Our Song," the third single off her self-titled debut album, Taylor Swift, jam to "Harder to Breathe," the first single off Maroon 5's debut album Songs About Jane, or rock to "New" by No Doubt as they bring in the New Year, Guitar Hero style.

The Fall of Troy, OneRepublic, Indie Rock and Celebrity New Years Rock Track Packs will be available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 440 Microsoft Points, on the PlayStation®Store for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for $5.49 and for Wii(TM) for 550 Wii Points(TM). In addition, all songs in The Fall of Troy, OneRepublic, Indie Rock and Celebrity New Years Rock Track Packs will be released as downloadable singles for Xbox 360 for 160 Microsoft Points, PlayStation 3 system for $1.99 and Wii for 200 Wii Points each.

Why do I even care anymore? The licensing department has proven that they're not worth scat.

Neversoft is giving out a free omelette next month? Awesome. It better be delicious. The last three free omelettes were delicious.

Fall of Troy is allways nice. OneRepublic is an eh for me. Indie pack I'll have to give them a listen, and the Celeb pack is another eh for me. Although I may get a single for my roommate, as she likes the Taylor Swift musics.

All in all, an average month. Please Please PLEASE increase the amount of DLC next year. I'm not asking for double digits or anything, but more than three a week every week would be nice. Also, there's no point in having an "album" section of the DLC store when there hasn't been a new albun in there for almost a year.

No song from 1990 or before. Variety, huh?

I continually find it funny that the free DLC is usually the stuff I'd be most likely to buy anyway (The Touch, Bruce Springsteen and Ouimette to name a few).

Thanks for the free song, Neversoft. I appreciate it.

No, we didn't wait for the "better" dlc. The sticker on the CD from the new album stated that the TFOT pack would feature songs off the new album. We've known about it for a while, now. Even had some confirmation by the band themselves
