For those Van Halen fans who still had a glimmer of hope that despite Rock Daily's news that Guitar Hero: Van Halen was a David Lee Roth-only affair, somehow Sammy Hagar songs would make the game, we're sorry to report that the game's final track list has been revealed — and it's all Diamond Dave.
However, the 28 Van Halen songs on GH:VH represent the best of the band's first era, with hits like "Jamie's Cryin," "Panama" and "Ain't Talkin About Love" alongside more obscure tracks like Women and Children First's "Loss of Control and Fair Warning's "Hear About It Later," MTV reveals. Other artists on the game's on-disc track list include cuts from Blink-182, Weezer, Foo Fighters and the Clash.
As Rock Daily previously reported from the E3 Expo, both Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony are excluded from the game, replaced by Roth and new bassist Wolfgang Van Halen. At the game's onset, players will take the guise of Van Halen's current incarnation, but can unlock the spandex era of VH with the big hair and tight pants throughout the gameplay, even though Wolfgang wasn't even alive at the time when the band recorded half the songs here. When performing the non-VH songs, players will assume Guitar Hero's more traditional characters and not Van Halen, so performing Billy Idol's "White Wedding" as David Lee Roth is sadly not an option.
Guitar Hero: Van Halen is due out December 22nd, giving consumers a pretty awesome last minute gift-buying option for Christmas. Here's the full track list:
