Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero Offer
a Strong Lineup of Downloadable Tracks in March

Popular Bands blink-182, OK Go,
Flogging Molly, Mötley Cre, The Go-Go’s and Night Ranger Round Out the Roster
of Top Acts Contributing Music to Guitar Hero’s Music Library

Guitar Hero shifts into high gear
with the announcement of this month’s lineup of downloadable songs for
Activision Publishing, Inc.’s Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. With a new three-song
offering every Thursday, Guitar Hero raises the bar once again with track packs
from premier pop-punk band blink-182, alternative rockers OK Go, Irish-infused
music from Flogging Molly and a collection of 80’s hits from iconic bands Mötley
Cre, The Go-Go’s and Night Ranger.

Leading the charge on March 4,
pop-punk trio blink-182 returns to Guitar Hero with a track pack featuring three
of their biggest hits that helped shape the development of the pop-punk music
genre. The blink-182 track pack features “First Date,” the second single from
Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, as well as mega-hit “All The Small Things” and
the slow-paced, serious track “Adam’s Song,” both from the band’s 1999
multi-platinum album Enema Of The State.

Grammy award winning band OK Go
smashes onto the scene March 11 with “Here It Goes Again” and “Do What You Want”
from their 2005 release Oh No. Longtime OK Go fanatics will also be thrilled to
rock out to “Get Over It,” the first single off of the band’s 2002 self-titled
debut album.

Living room legends can continue
their St. Patrick’s Day celebration as they download the Flogging Molly track
pack on March 18. The three Irish-inspired favorites from the Celtic punk
rockers will have fans jamming all night long to “Requiem For A Dying Song” and
“(No More) Paddy’s Lament” from the band’s 2008 album Float and “The Seven
Deadly Sins” from their 2004 release Within a Mile of Home.

The 80’s return on March 25 with
some of the music that made the decade famous, including the title glam metal
anthem “Girls, Girls, Girls” off of Mötley Cre’s 1987 album, The Go-Go’s
biggest hit, “We Got The Beat,” off of their debut album Beauty And The Beat,
and Night Ranger’s milestone power ballad “Sister Christian.”

The blink-182, OK Go, Flogging Molly
and 80’s track packs will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 for
440 Microsoft Points, on the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 3 for $5.49
and for Wii for 550 Wii Points. In addition, all songs in each track pack will
