Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s Songs Revealed

After a slow but steady stream of "leaked" tracks, we now have the full, official, 100% long-haired song list from the upcoming Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s. Everything seems to be in order, can't wait to give 'em all a spin when the game comes out July 24. I hope the game itself fixes some of the problems I thought GH2 had as compared to GH1 (too steep difficulty ramping, with a boring Medium and a frustrating Hard), but even if not it'll be fun just to have some new jams in the repertoire. Also of interest is the inclusion of fake 80s group Limozeen, continuing GH's relationship with The Brothers Chaps.

Full list after the jump.
  • Caught in a Mosh (as made famous by Anthrax)
  • Balls to the Wall (as made famous by Accept)

Boo: Everyone knows that Nite Mamas is the supierior Limozeen song.

Plus, no Smiths? I know it's not exactly shredd-worthy, but Johnny Marr's jangly guitar parts would be so much fun to play.
