Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock track list released - and it's actually pretty amazing

The track list for what seems like the 834th Guitar Hero game has been released, and I am surprised to see that it's actually pretty awesome.  The game is going to be something of a departure from traditional Guitar Hero play in that the single player mode has been reworked into something called "quest mode" which plays out more like an adventure game than the "beat these three songs in order to beat three harder songs" formula used by all of the previous games in the series.

I liked the first 3 games in the series, then lost interest when they started adding drums and giving every band in the world their own video game.  If every kid that spends most of their time playing guitar hero used that time to learn to play a real instrument, there'd be a lot more musicians in the world; but I suppose playing GH is better than mainlining amphetamines in the alley behind the school, so it evens out.  The full tracklisting is below, featuring the FULL VERSION of Rush's 2112 and a "last-boss" song called Sudden Death that Dave Mustaine of Megadeth wrote specifically for the game.  I think it's a pretty kickass list, despite the appearance of Fallout Boy.  I might consider picking this one up.
