Yeah, thought it would be fun. This isn't what I'd call the Quinessential Guitar Hero songlist, just predictions, knowing Activision and where they've taken GH.

First one I thought of:
"Through The Fire And Flames" by Dragonforce- Hard as hell, and all music arcade games need an "ooh!" or a quarter muncher (dollar muncher, nowadays). Also, it will be based on GH3, so it would be safe to assume it has a few songs.
"Smoke On The Water" by Deep Purple- Really? Did you have to ask?
"Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne- Again, hard as hell, and in GH:WT
"Miss Murder" by AFI
"Lay Down" by Priestess- New songs
"Helicopter" by Bloc Party- Used in EVERY non-main GH iteration
A Pat Benetar Song- For all the moms out there
"Spiderwebs" by No Doubt
"One Way Or Another" by Blondie
"Rock And Roll All Nite" by Kiss
"The Middle" Jimmy Eat World- All syndicated with a DS game or also on RB2

4 out of 10 right :(
