Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80s

Pandora with Flock of Seagulls hairdo.

That's truly, truly, truly outrageous

Bits Bytes Pixels & Sprites reveals the cover art for Guitar Hero Encore Rocks the 80s (that's a mouthful, eh?) It's being released for the PS2, but I hope to see it available as a download for the 360, and optimally a Virtual Console DL for the Wii (after GH3 is released of course)

Joystiq posted a partial list of songs a couple of weeks ago. For those that don't know (I didn't) here you go.
  • I Wanna Rock (by Twisted Sister)
  • I Ran (by Flock of Seagulls)
  • Round and Round (as made famous by Ratt)
  • I Want Candy (as made famous by Bow Wow Wow)
  • Metal Health (as made famous by Quiet Riot)
  • Holy Diver (as made famous by Dio)
  • Heat Of The Moment (as made famous by Asia)
In my perfect little world there would be a Freezepop version of the Jem and the Holograms theme song. It won't happen, but I can dream.

It can happen. The song already exists:

While that rocks my socks mightily, I find that it lacks a bit in the gee-tar department. Then again, Less Talk, More Rokk did too, but it was still hella fun.

Go send a love letter to Harmonix (or whoever owns them now) and demand our Jem!
