And that’s just a little under half of the songs so far. More and more it is looking like Guitar Hero Metallica is going to be the next must-buy music game. Should you be a little upset that it’s going to be a standalone game and not just an add-on to Guitar Hero World Tour? Possibly. Possibly. Think what you want of Metallica’s newer stuff (I love Death Magnetic, for the record) but you know this is going to be your next party game.

“Ride the Lightning” and join Metallica, the greatest metal band of all time, and musicians selected by the band including Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters and Queen in an all new Guitar Hero experience — Guitar Hero Metallica.  Grab your friends and feel the intensity and skill of Metallica’s music as you shred guitar, rip on drums and wail to songs that span the band’s illustrious career. Guitar Hero Metallica’s set list is comprised of over 45 explosive metal and rock hits from Metallica and other legendary artists that are performed in venues reminiscent of the band’s epic album covers, themes from their music and real world locales.
