Band Photo: Metallica (?)

Metallica has now revealed the tracklisting for Guitar Hero: Metallica. As previously reported, Guitar Hero: Metallica will be hitting the streets on March 29 with some really cool features like different classic venues such as the L.A. Forum, Tushino Airfield, and The Hammersmith Odeon, the ability to play as us or in single instrument mode, and even the Expert+ setting with double bass drum kick pedals.

Here are the songs on the game, both from Metallica and other bands that they "admire and even call friends":

Metallica songs:

All Nightmare Long
Battery
Creeping Death
Disposable Heroes
Dyers Eve
Enter Sandman
Fade To Black
Fight Fire With Fire
For Whom The Bell Tolls
Frantic
Fuel
Hit The Lights
King Nothing
Master of Puppets
Mercyful Fate (Medley)
No Leaf Clover
Nothing Else Matters
One
Orion
Sad But True
Seek And Destroy
The Memory Remains
The Shortest Straw
The Thing That Should Not Be
The Unforgiven
Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
Wherever I May Roam
Whiplash

If you downloaded the "Death Magnetic" album for Xbox and PS3, those ten songs will play in their entirety in the full game mode. PS2 and Wii versions (coming in the Spring, most likely in early May) will include "Broken Beat & Scarred," "Cyanide" and "My Apocalypse" since they are not compatible with the Death Magnetic downloadable content.

Other artists' songs include:

Alice In Chains - No Excuses
Bob Seger - Turn The Page
Corrosion of Conformity - Albatross
Diamond Head - Am I Evil?
Foo Fighters - Stacked Actors
Judas Priest - Hell Bent For Leather
Kyuss - Demon Cleaner
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Tuesdays Gone
Machine Head - Beautiful Mourning
Mastodon - Blood And Thunder
Mercyful Fate - Evil
Michael Schenker Group - Armed and Ready
Motorhead - Ace of Spades
Queen - Stone Cold Crazy
Samhain - Mother of Mercy
Slayer - War Ensemble
Social Distortion - Mommy's Little Monster
Suicidal Tendencies - War Inside My Head
System of a Down - Toxicity
The Sword - Black River
Thin Lizzy - The Boys Are Back in Town

The tracklist is still subject to change.

After seeing the track listing and thinking about this a bit I've realized this game is going to be pretty f***ing tough! A lot of these songs are like 6-7+ minutes and have some incredibly fast parts. I can see this game becoming very tiring. That's cool they added some other sweet metal bands too, yeah Kyuss!

NP- Metallica- Disposable Heroes

there are a LOT of Metallica songs I wanted to see here that aren't on the list. But at least they've got a few I guess.

Lol this is weird, because I've only really been introduced to Kyuss in the last week - been cranking the self titled today much to neighbours annoyance.

Oh and not that I'll play it but yeah missing "Damage Inc." and "Ride The Lightning" - those songs are fun as hell to play, specially the marathon solo in RTL.

Awesome tracklist but should have Ride the Lightning, Harvester of Sorrow, Blitzkrieg (awesome drums in that song) etc. I'm guessing that they didn't include Four Horsemen because that sh** would be hard as to play. But still. DISPOSABLE HEROES!

I mostly wanted everything off AJFA and RTL, with a large portion of MOP and a healthy dose of KEA. I shrug at the rest.

No chance of a "classic" version at a cut-down price with all the post-Black album stuff removed, seeing as it's all pretty much s**t?

As for Four Horsemen, it'd be more difficult played at a proper speed. Like, I dunno, Mechanix ;)

Still, almost worth considering for the likes of Toxicity and War Ensemble.

i can't complain about the tracklisting, Most of the songs I would have wanted are on here. The only ones I feel should be on here that are not are ride the lightning, damage inc, motorbreath, jump in the fire and blackened. Thats what dlc is for . This game is gonna be hard though.

Hey Cynic you should check out, Welcome to Sky Valley or Blues for the red sun. Both of those albums are fantastic, real heavy grooves that kick serious ass. I'm not sure which one your listening to? As far as I know there isn't a self titled

"And The Circus leaves Town" is also a really good Kyuss album. Also you can get Ride the Lightning, Blackened, And Justice for all as downloads on XBox live. The package of Metallica tunes runs around 10 bucks I think? Whatever points that translates into.

If you read the wikipedia article Demoncleaner it says "Kyuss" is the actually title of "Welcome To Sky Valley". I read that when I was checking them out, MA has the same thing.

Four Horsemen isn't actually that hard on guitar once you get the picking down, a really good metal guitar 101 song actually. Dyers Eve on the other hand - don't even bother!

My buddy from my old band came to visit a few months back. We sat for a couple hours and actually got most of Dyers Eve down between the two of us. We always have played old Metallica tunes together, Four Horsemen and Damage Inc. being our favorites. As for playing and singing Dyers Eve, I can't do it. The riff takes all my effort.

I think everytime I come to learn it, the sum of the parts annoys me too much to bother haha - riffing wise each part is fine to learn, I just can't be bothered to put each part together in the massive confuserama of riff splicing that is that song.

Wtf, Necrophagist are the end all of technical death metal. Even if you hated them, you can't disagree they've created probably the most technical music ever played. In closing, Necrophagist rule, but "epic fail" sounds like a 4chan dork.

Apparently someone does because these games fly off the shelves. I can understand how some folks who don't play video games think Guitar Hero is rediculous. But honestly, alot of people enjoy it. I'm kind of on the fence about it.

As a musician, I don't like to hear kids say "I think I'd be pretty good at playing guitar 'cause I can play Guitar Hero really well." That's just stupidity.

But as a gamer, I like the idea of playing a video game while listening to music. The simple aesthetic of entertainment.

As long as it's kept in perspective and shown for what it really is I have no problem with games like Rock Band or Guitar Hero. On the plus side I have seen my nephew go from a kid playing video games to a guitarist and piano player because of the influence of these games. They sparked the interest and he is actually pretty good. Also thank God he likes Metal :)
