Guitar Hero: Metallica Full Song List

Here is the full track list for Guitar Hero: Metallica for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii.  It includes both a wide range of Metallica songs spanning the band's entire career as well as a selection of songs from bands that either inspired or were inspired by, Metallica.  It's a great list overall.

Guitar Hero Metallica is one of the most difficult and challenging Guitar Hero or Rock Band games, but it is definitely one of our favorites.

 The guitar work is intricate and interesting, the drums are frantic and wild, and the bass is more than just the same repetitive notes over and over again.  We loved it in our original review of the game, which you can read here - Guitar Hero Metallica Xbox 360 Review.

It is also worth noting that you can export the Guitar Hero Metallica track list into Guitar Hero 5 and/or Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (it'll work for both if you do it once).

Also of note is that if you have already downloaded the Metallica "Death Magnetic" album for GH3/GH:WT, it is compatible with GH: Metallica. No other DLC works, however, and there isn't any future DLC planned for this game.

Guitar Hero LIVE

Unfortunately, Guitar Hero: Metallica songs won't be compatible with the upcoming Guitar Hero LIVE because GH: Live uses an all new six-button controller and gameplay style, so none of the old DLC will work with the new game.  This is definitely a bummer considering that Rock Band 4 will be backward compatible with all of the old songs and instruments, so it is a pretty bad blow for Guitar Hero fans.  We have a full listing of Guitar Hero LIVE tracks here.​
