Press release:

In Guitar Hero: Smash Hits players get the best of previous Guitar Hero games, now in a full band gameplay scenario. Turn down the lights, crank up the amps and prepare to command center stage as you rock out to the most fun tracks from Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. And for the first time you can join together as a band and jam to master tracks from the greatest Guitar Hero music on your controllers for guitar, drums and vocals.

More than just an outstanding and comprehensive 48-song setlist, Guitar Hero: Smash Hits is chock full of crowd-pleasing game features. It allows up to four players to join together and rock locally, or battle other bands online with up to 8 players. It features Rock Star Creator, first made famous in Guitar Hero World Tour, as well as Music Studio and GHTunes which together allow players to create their own hits and share them online. The game also adds another dimension of difficulty with the drum kit controller’s double kick-pedal "Expert+" difficulty level first seen in Guitar Hero: Metallica.

For the first time players can take the stage and rock on their favorite Guitar Hero tracks from early games in the series using the drum kit and mic controllers. For newer Guitar Hero fans, this is a great chance to catch up and play the best of Guitar Hero, while more experienced Guitar Hero fans now have a new reason to expand to the full band.

I've always loved Sinatra from the Strap It On album.

Best Helmet song and album is a no brainer for me: "In The Meantime" from "Meantime". It changed everything.


My favorite is Betty!! .

Helmet is my favorite band of all time, and my favorite song by them is "I Know" on the record Betty. Amazing stuff. Got to see them live about a year ago and talked to Page afterward. Awesome guy, lots of knowledge. Still brutal as hell. :)

Vaccination, probably. They're all great.




Favorite album: Meantime
Favorite song (and that's a tough one because there are so many): Milquetoast




See you dead rocks!


I have many Helmet favourites but if I have to pick 1 is is Blacktop from Strap It On.

I would have to go with BAD MOOD off of the strap it on Album. It rocked then and it still rocks now. I think they also influenced some of the newer hardcore acts of today. I hope i win that would be a great prize pack to win. Thanks


i am kind of stuck between 'meantime', 'crisis king' and 'just another victim' but i would say 'just another victim' is my fav.
helmet are just the most awesome band, and all their songs are the best, so that would make it a hard choice.......


to be completely contrary to everyone else here, the 1993 version of born annoying.

In the Meantime is awesome!


Is everyone nutz? It all FN rocks, from Strap to Monochrome. Get with the program. It's a damn shame how other bands rip them off and get credit for being "original". Speak the truth.Swallow everthing in the meantime and don't become Just Another Victim.


i know everyone is going with, unsung or meantime, i'd have to say....Everybody Loves You, off of Size Matters.
