The Smashing Pumpkins Bring "G.L.O.W." Exclusively to "Guitar Hero: World Tour"

September 2, 2008 3:05 PM ET

The Smashing Pumpkins' new song "G.L.O.W." will make its debut exclusively via Guitar Hero: World Tour. "G.L.O.W." will be packaged with two other SP songs — "1979" and "The Everlasing Gaze" — as a three-song download for the newest installation of the Guitar Hero series, due out this fall. Billy Corgan will also appear as a playable character when users attempt to tackle Siamese Dream's "Today." No word yet on how non-gaming fans will be able to download the song. The "G.L.O.W." acquisition is the latest weapon in the battle of Guitar Hero vs. Rock Band 2, with GH thus far recruiting new instruments, Metallica's Death Magnetic and Jimi Hendrix while RB has countered with "Guns n' Roses' Shackler's Revenge," full album downloads and the "biggest soundtrack ever."

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
