Modern Rock Mega Pack DLC comes to Guitar Hero

The Guitar Hero franchise may be down, but it's not out. Making good on its promise to continue supporting new downloadable content for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Activision today announced nine new tracks for the game.

Dubbed the Modern Rock Mega Pack, the new slate of DLC is the first major update to Warriors of Rock since the announcement to shut down the long-running music game series. Here's what it includes:

* "Sorrow" by Bad Religion
* "Sic Transit Gloria... Glory Fades" by Brand New
* "She's A Genius" by Jet
* "Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse
* "Psycho" by Puddle Of Mudd
* "Little Sister" by Queens Of The Stone Age
* "Always" by Saliva
* "Hands Open" by Snow Patrol
* "Headstrong" by Trapt

All tracks are available for the standard $2 price tag, or players can buy all nine together for a bundle price of around $16.50.

In February, Activision announced plans to end the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero franchises. The publisher initially said it would not be releasing any more DLC for either series, but after an outpouring of support, the company announced via Twitter that it would release new content after all.

    More like Modern ROCKFARE AMOIROIGHT? Caring very much about rock music, the choice of these tracks for a representative "modern rock" pack makes me sad. And I loved earlier QotSA stuff (also liked Muse once).

    God damnit! I thought the end of Guitar Hero would make Muse go to Rock Band...

    "Super Massive Black Hole" is the only song I've heard of on that list. Granted, I don't really give a shit about modern rock.

    The only song I know is Headstrong, although Saliva and Muse are also really good bands.
