Console wars are so last season. Now we've got setlist wars for music games. When Rock Band 2's formidable list was confirmed during E3 week, we uttered a low whistle for all the catching up Guitar Hero: World Tour would have to do to to keep it a competition. Now, via the Something Awful forums comes what purports to be a leaked list of World Tour songs by their respective sections. Now, we know now that Rock Band and Guitar Hero are somewhat different in terms of who plays them and what their motivation is, and a great Rock Band song might've made a boring Guitar Hero III song. But are all bets off now that we've got band sets for both games? And if so, let's play pretend for a sec, and imagine that what follows after the jump is actually Guitar Hero: World Tour's list. If it is, then who do you think's winning now?Eagle Rock High School Tour: "Dope Nose" by Weezer "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World Encore: "Today" by Smashing Pumpkins Big City Kids Tour: "Roland" by Interpol "Santeria" By Sublime Encore: "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers Feelin' Nostalgic Tour: "Take It on the Run" by REO Speedwagon "Hold the Line" by Toto Encore: "Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol Vixens Tour: "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar "All Around Me" by Flyleaf Encore:"Misery Business" by Paramore Undertow Tour: "Stinkfist" by Tool "Lateralus" by Tool "Schism" by Tool Synchronicity Tour: "Guitar Battle Vs.

@kakihara: If this is the setlist, I would wager that Activision would be trying to keep it secret as long as possible.
Lord knows HMX could easily get a wind of this and start pumping out DLC from this before GHWT even hits. It'd be perfect!
"Hey kids, want to play Hot For Teacher but don't want to soil your console with the DragonForce? Then buy the new 'Look Who's Stealing NOW' Pack for Rock Band."
Quite frankly, this list is somewhat believeable. As somebody pointed out earlier...it's comes down to the RB approach of "Fun to play" vs. the GH approach of "Hey I know this song!"
