Thank you! Next is our number 1 hit. The Wheels on the Bus!

Speaking personally, there’s some songs that I’m happy to see on there, Breaking the Law, Cowboys from Hell, Paint It Black, Going to Hell, and Sing are all songs that are going to be fun to play. The only one I personally draw issue with is Bangarang. I don’t understand it’s purpose of being there. It seems like the kind of song that’s tagged along on a day out to a theme park even though it doesn’t like roller coasters, hot days, queues or eating sugar in the purest of forms.

In what is being called… Ahem “#TracklistTuesday” (Yep, it even included the hashtag in the e-mail) we can apparently expect new songs to be announced every week, drip feeding us information slowly, as hungry plastic guitar kings sit feverishly at their computers, waiting to know if Smoke on the Water or Iron Man are going to be added. Don’t get me wrong, more songs are a good thing, especially with the lack of backwards compatability with our existing libraries, but for a game with a release date of sometime in 2015 towards the end, they’re going to run out of songs in a few weeks and then it will go back to silence for a few months and everyone will forget.

So let’s see what Activision cook up for next week’s songs, personally I’m hoping for Metallica, Nirvana and Taylor Swift.
