The inclusion of Sonic Youth's "Kool Thing" matches up with earlier reports, which claimed that Interscope would be releasing a Guitar Hero III soundtrack in late October. The CD is also said to contain a voucher that allows Xbox 360 owners to obtain exclusive tracks from AFI, Flyleaf, and Marilyn Manson.
Guitar Hero III arrives on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii on October 28. Neversoft is handling the PS3 and X360 versions, with Budcat on the PS2 build and Vicarious Visions on the Wii iteration.
PC and Mac editions of the game, ported by Aspyr Media and based on the Xbox 360 version, are also in development and will hit this year, though an exact release date has yet to be pinned down.
