New stuff arrives for Guitar Hero Live as we look back at the Holiday playlist

Guitar Hero Live gets another dose of new tunes as we also check out the list of the most-played songs for the Holiday period.

Starting with ZZ Top’s I Gotsta Get Paid and ending with Always With Me, Always With You by Joe Satriani, the most-played listing of all the songs that got the most jams over the Holiday break is pretty ridiculously varied. I guess that just go to show you how many different people with different tastes have picked up the game, which launched in September.

The songs below represent the top 20, direct from the fine folks at developer FreeStyle Games, and were selected by gamers from the GHTV’s various online components.

1 I Gotsta Get Paid ZZ Top
2 Best Day of My Life American Authors
3 Tribute Tenacious D
4 Epic Faith No More
5 Rollin’ and Tumblin’ The Gaslight Anthem
6 Jekyll and Hyde Five Finger Death Punch
7 Diamond Eyes Deftones
8 Break the Cycle Motionless in White
9 Tears Don’t Fall Bullet For My Valentine
10 Broken Generation Of Mice & Men
11 More Than A Feeling Boston
12 Stacy’s Mom Fountains of Wayne
13 Cult of Personality Living Colour
14 Eyes of a Stranger Queensryche
15 Buddy Holly Weezer
16 Cowboys from Hell Pantera
17 The Lazy Song Bruno Mars
18 Down with the Sickness Disturbed
19 Time To Pretend MGMT
20 Always with Me, Always with You Joe Satriani

Interesting, right? Cult of Personality from Living Colour is one of my all-time faves, but there’s lots of stuff on there that I wouldn’t have guessed would have been on a ‘top 20’ list. While this has been a look back though, there’s also some newness to welcome in the New Year for GHL.

A pair of new Premium shows are here to rock in 2016 and they focus on a selection of songs form bands that are almost as diverse as those in the top 20 above. Here’s what’s available to play right now:

Festival Anthems 
  •          The Killers – Mr. Brightside
  •          Biffy Clyro – Black Chandelier
  •          Kings of Leon – Use Somebody
New Rock Revolution 
  •          Don Broco – Priorities
  •          Lower Than Atlantis – English Kids in America
  •          Mallory Knox – When Are We Waking Up?
