Next Guitar Hero III DLC: Def Leppard

Activision certainly raked in some cash with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, and they're gonna bring in even more with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and Guitar Hero IV, both slated to release in 2008. Furthermore, we can now expect three additional songs for GHIII by '80s rock legend, Def Leppard.

According to GameSpot, the band's label revealed that a three-song pack featuring "Rock of Ages," "Photograph," and "Nine Lives" will become available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace on April 24 and on the PlayStation Store on May 8. At first, it was believed "Rock of Ages," "Photograph," and "Animal" would show up in Guitar Hero IV, but as it turns out, the first two songs and "Nine Lives" are actually being prepped for GHIII. They'll be here soon to download. As for "Animal," a song that went unmentioned in the announcement, it's possible we could see it in the upcoming GHIV. The band's publicist has said Def Leppard will be the very first band "to have released a new single ahead of its traditional launch through a video game."

The downloadable pack has been confirmed, though, so make sure to take advantage, Guitar Hero owners. We'll let you know as soon as Activision nails down a concrete release date for Guitar Hero IV, and we'll be interested to see how many songs will be featured in the next entry...

GHIV? Forget it. They abandoned us on GHIII. The DLC for 3 had been terrible. If they can't prove that they can deliver on DLC then i am not gonna bother with GHIV.
As for this update, 3 songs by a band no one likes? Are these guys kidding us here? Where are the monster tracks? Where are the classics? Where are the guitar shredding masterpieces that we consumers have been begging for for an age?

...by a band no one likes? There's someone who didn't live even remotely close to the '80s.

The were rock Gods then, my friend, and they're still touring to sellout crowds now. Pyromania sold 6 million copies in about 8 months time back then, and it's STILL selling now. Just because the world of music is so completely devoid of talent or rhythm these days ('cough' rap 'cough'), that doesn't mean we have to ignore decent music.

I may not have lived through the 70s and 80s but that doesn't mean i can't appreciate music from those eras. In fact, almost all my music collection is pre 90s. Sabbath, Maiden, The Who. Those were rock gods. Def Leppard was a mere footnote. Anyone who has heard their Slang album and has taste will agree that they don't deserve to even be mentioned.
As for 8 million copies of pyromania being sold, proof Burke was right, democracy is a bad idea. lol

I was a music journalist for several years. Living in your own little world and calling Def Leppard a "footnote" in that generation is ridiculous and uneducated.

I'll leave it at that.

How can you say that Def Leppard sucks? They could rock almost any new musical group today. Also, their drummer only has one arm and to say that they are not good is pupostourous. He can kick almost anyones ass that plays the drums. He is god in my book and many others books. Obviously "ThePoetRazel" knows no talent even when it pounds his ear-drums. hey that can be taken as a joke too!

Rick Allen is one hell of a drummer, i'll give you that. But a band is more (or in this case less) than the sum of it's parts.
