This September, living room legends

finger tips from the start, featuring genre-defining hits from more than 80 of
the biggest rock artists and bands of all time, including The Rolling Stones,
The White Stripes, Kings of Leon, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Vampire Weekend, plus
more than 25 artists from a variety of music genres that will be making their
music video game debuts. Players take complete control as Guitar Hero 5 allows

bassists and drummers, in any game mode. With the game’s all-new Party Play
Mode, players can now jump in or drop out of gameplay seamlessly, without
interrupting their jam session.
