Major publisher Activision has revealed an additional handful of classic 80's tracks that will be featured in the recently announced Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80s, set to be released this summer for the PlayStation 2.

The title is apparently the final Guitar Hero game to be developed by original creator Harmonix - the developer is now owned by MTV and working on multi-instrument music game Rock Band for publishing via MTV Games, with distribution and marketing by EA. Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80s will feature 30 new songs specifically themed around the decade " including those from iconic “hair bands” such as Poison and Skid Row.

In addition to those tracks already confirmed, the game will also include:

- 18 and Life (as made famous by Skid Row)
- Bathroom Wall (as made famous by Faster Pussycat)
- Lonely is the Night (as made famous by Billy Squier)
- Nothing But a Good Time (as made famous by Poison)
- Play With Me (as made famous by Extreme)
- Shaken (as made famous by Eddie Money)
- Synchronicity II (as made famous by Police)

These songs join others by bands such as Twisted Sister, Flock of Seagulls, and Ratt, leaving sixteen tracks as yet unannounced for the upcoming rhythm action game. The Guitar Hero franchise continues to be a major one for Activision, with recent positive financial results being partially ascribed to Guitar Hero II's success.
