    Welcome to Guitar Hero 2 (yes it was probably a cover...but we've been able to play that song since then...)

      That was a cover.

      But the original track was included in GH: Smash Hits, and you can export those tracks to GH5 (although I guess nobody did, which is why they're selling it now).

      The level design on it *sucked* compared to GH2. I imagine this is the same.

      I'd love to get Free Bird in Rock Band. Harmonix knows how to lay a song out right.

      I like how Activision has resorted to grabbing a song 2 more times..... its a good song but man they are pathetic!

      Yes, what on Earth were people doing requesting a song that's been available for 4 years?
