[UPDATED] Guitar Hero 80s Set Lists Detailed, More Or Less

June 29, 2007

With Harmonix’s encore performance with the popular [i]Guitar Hero[/i] franchise nearly upon us, Activision has been slowly leaking out a few songs each day or so that will make an appearance on the upcoming rhythm action game.

While it’s probably hard to appreciate on your end, it’s been painful not to just tell you all what songs will be on the game, as we’ve been playing the title for a few weeks now. However, given that the lions’ share of the songs have been released, we figured we’d break down the game’s set lists based on what has been officially announced so far.

We’ve also linked to a few videos of us playing a few of these songs as well, so be nice.
