galaxy s3 covers

The Guitar Hero® music library continues to evolve and expand as November brings a great collection of new and classic tracks from some of rock’s best-loved artists. Fans can download tracks from artists including Lenny Kravitz and KISS and – for the first time – they can import tracks directly from Guitar Hero 5® and Band Hero(TM) into their Guitar Hero music library.

On November 5, as a way to commemorate the release of Band Hero, Guitar Hero music aficionados can import 69 tracks from the highly acclaimed Guitar Hero 5 into Band Hero, or import 61 of Band Hero’s hits directly into Guitar Hero 5. Building the ultimate music set list is now easier then ever. For a complete listing of forward compatible content, please visit http://hub.guitarhero.com/support/faq/song-import-information.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of his 1989 debut album, Let Love Rule, Lenny Kravitz will be returning to Guitar Hero on November 12 with a three song track pack that will set players’ fingers ablaze. The track pack features his debut single "Let Love Rule," "Lady," off his seventh studio album Baptism, and "Fly Away," one of Lenny Kravitz most successful songs to date.

Back on the road again this fall to accompany the launch of their newest studio album Sonic Boom, KISS has decided to add one additional date to the tour. Look for KISS to headline the Guitar Hero stage on November 19 with a three song track pack that’s sure to satiate the KISS fan in everyone. The track pack will feature "Modern Day Delilah," the first single off their new album, Sonic Boom, "Lick It Up" the title track on their similarly named 1983 album, Lick it Up, and "I Was Made for Loving You," KISS’s second Gold single.

Guitar Hero wouldn’t be what it is today without the loyalty of its fans. As a thank you for all the years of support and encouragement, Neversoft proudly presents a free six song track pack of music from bands that feature Neversoft employees. The track pack, which will be available just before Thanksgiving on November 24 includes "Lemon Frosting" by Bunny Knutson, "RockNRola" by Nancy Fullforce, "From the Blue/Point of No Return/T.T.R.T.S" by An Endless Sporadic, "Love Holds It Down" by Dom Liberati, "You Really Like Me" by Davidicus and "Guilty Pleasures" by Tony Solis. The Neversoft Thanks the Fans track pack will only be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

Wii(TM) owners have spoken and Guitar Hero has heard you loud and clear. Starting November 24, Wii and Metallica fans looking to get their fix will be able to download 8 additional tracks off Metallica’s Death Magnetic album which were previously only available on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The songs, which will be available only as downloadable singles, include "All Nightmare Long," "That Was Just Your Life," "The Day That Never Comes," "The Judas Kiss," "The End Of The Line," "The Unforgiven III," "Suicide & Redemption J.H." and "Suicide & Redemption K.H."

The Lenny Kravitz and KISS Track Packs will be available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360 for 440 Microsoft Points, on the PlayStation®Store for the PlayStation 3 system for $5.49 and for Wii for 550 Wii Points(TM). In addition, all songs in the Lenny Kravitz and KISS 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.
