Guns N' Roses
Despite all the drama, controversy, bad hair, pretence and antics of singer Axl Rose — not to mention the ridiculously long delays between album releases — Guns N' Roses are brilliantly epic. A cameo by erstwhile guitarist Slash in Guitar Hero III was nice, but given the group's large canon of anthems, a dedicated game will be required. To this day, both "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle" are two of the best playing Guitar Hero tracks ever. More please (but hold the spandex).
Essential tracks we want to play: "Paradise City," "Estranged," "November Rain".
