Confirming what was reported on Transformers fan site Seibertron.com Monday, Stan Bush passes along his thanks for all of your efforts to get his classic song into Guitar Hero.

Thanks so much for all your support! Because of the overwhelming enthusiasm from fans like you, "The Touch" will soon be available for Guitar Hero! Activision will be offering it as a free download. We did it!

We did it indeed! I was off doing some last-minute moving stuff when the initial announcement was first posted, so I missed out on the initial celebration of the end of our long struggle, but I'm at my best when the going gets tough. I mean, I've been put to the test and it's never enough.

Check out Stan's full message below, and give yourselves a nice pat on the back.

Dear Kotaku fans,

Thanks so much for all your support! Because of the overwhelming enthusiasm from fans like you, "The Touch" will soon be available for Guitar Hero! Activision will be offering it as a free download. We did it!
