Full setlist for Guitar Hero 5 revealed, boasts 85 tracks
by Linford Butler
If you've ever seen someone playing guitar like a semi-pro and really wanted to yourself, yet know that you haven't the time, neccessary effort or patience to learn how to, you'll know how disappointing it can be. However, that's all about to change - for the fifth time - with the release of Activision's Guitar Hero 5.

Shipping on 1st September, just in time for a few days of non-stop riffs before school starts for the autumn term, GT5's full setlist has just been released via a very shiny press release. Boasting an impressive 85 tracks straight out of the box, and doubtless there'll be many more available via download after release, it's easy to imagine the guitar simulator doing well in this year's Christmas charts.

The full setlist includes a varied selection of tracks, old and new, from Coldplay to David Bowie, Iggie Pop to Kiss and Kings of Leon to Rammstein. You can view the full setlist below.
