Game Description

Big hair? Check. Big riffs? Got those too. Lead one of rock's legendary bands as Van Halen takes center stage in Guitar Hero. Bring the crowd to its feet on "Hot for Teacher," "Panama," "Runnin' with the Devil," and the rest of Van Halen's biggest hits from the days of David Lee Roth. Master some of rock's greatest solos as you try and keep up with one of music's true guitar gods. Play through additional songs from Weezer, Queens of the Stone Age, Billy Idol, and other Halen-esque guest acts. Just make sure you stretch first if you're going to try and do the splits like Diamond Dave.
