When "Guitar Hero: World Tour," the fourth music video game in the Guitar Hero series, was released in late 2008, it wasn’t just another Guitar Hero game like its predecessors. It also included drums and vocals as well as a music studio to create your own songs. The game, like the Guitar Hero games that came before it, focuses on mimicking the music tracks included in the game using special game controllers.

The "Guitar Hero: World Tour" song list consists of 86 songs from artists and bands that include Blink-182, Bon Jovi, Beastie Boys, Nirvana, Metallica, Michael Jackson, Rise Against, and many others. At release, game owners could purchase and download additional tracks, but that downloadable content is no longer available.
