Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, the latest game in Activision's Guitar Hero franchise, will feature a single from reunited grunge rockers Soundgarden. Warriors of Rock, unite!
Back in the day, a rock band would debut their new single on MTV, and hope to sell a few hundred thousand CDs at retail chains across the country. In 2010, it's all about the blog hype, the music video games, and the digital downloads. So kudos to Soundgarden, the newly-reunited Seattle rock outfit, which is set to unveil its first single in 13 years on "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock," the latest installment in Activision's Guitar Hero franchise.
According to reps from Activision, "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock" will focus on "shred-worthy tunes," including singles from Jane's Addiction ("Been Caught Stealing"), A Perfect Circle ("The Outsider), Black Sabbath ("Children Of The Grave") and Megadeth ("Sudden Death"). But it's the news about Soundgarden, a band best known for its twisted rock ballad "Black Hole Sun," which has really caught the attention of the gaming blogosphere.
