Submission + - First Guitar Hero 3 downloadable content revealed (

RamblinLonghorn writes: ARS is reporting that the first set of GH3 downloaded songs have been revealed Included are songs by the Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver, and the boss battles that appear in the single player game. There is no official word on how soon these will appear, but seeing as how Rock Band is less than 3 weeks out, one would expect Activision to try and steal some of EA's thunder and release these songs near the middle of this month.
