Guitar Hero Expansions/Delays

Song updates are rare these days, finals time and all.

Now for "Why Activision Will Make Me Either Rich Or Disgusted":
1. Guitar Hero: Van Halen "Hot For Teacher" was already blown on GH:World Tour, so the only song I'm looking forward to are "You Really Got Me". BUT, according to the article, the guest acts include Queen, Weezer, Blink 182, The Offspring and Queens Of THe Stone Age. Sounds pretty good, but damn it, why not just do DLC?

2. GH5, Band Hero and DJ Hero Not much for DJ hero, but you have the 5th Guitar Hero game in as many years (fine, keeping up brand recognition you consumer whores), and Band Hero, a "family-friendly" game, like Lego Rock Band. Really? I understand the need to compete, but all this "family-friendly" BS is making me nauseous. WHY NOT DLC? Seriously, I thought these games were supposed be getting kids away from poppy crap, not reinforcing it.

3. Guitar Hero: Smash Hits Some pretty good ones in there. "Take Me Out", "Smoke On The Water" and "Godzilla" from GH1, "Freebird", "Beast and the Harlot" and "Trippin' On A Hole" from GH2, and the GH3 songs are more focused on the easier songs (save for "Raining Blood" and "That Damn Song From That Band Whose Songs All SOund Like A Robot Made Them That Every Spergs Out Over"). "Back In The Saddle"'s an odd choice, but seriously, how many rhythm games are going to feature "Round and Round"? Are there no other Ratt songs?
