Actually, the main article was missing a ton of confirmed tracks, so I added them (and no, I didn't use Joystiq's unofficial tracklist).  There are 70 tracks that have been announced through various sources (which wikipedia has nicely organized if you're curious).

The joystiq article this came from had the smug quote: "70 of the 85 tracks that'll come on the Guitar Hero 5 retail disc have been officially announced, and it's looking like our original complete track listing -- though still technically unofficial -- is so totally the real deal."

The only song that looks more than slightly interesting is "Spirit Of Radio" by Rush. The rest I could definitely go without playing. Also I already have a few other tracks on Rock Band either as DLC or on-disc songs.

Agreed, though there are a few "wow, I'm sort of surprised that they thought to put this song in" like "Do You Feel Like We Do?"  Very classic track, but it's 10 minutes long.

I love that Brand New is in a music game, but I wish they'd have chosen a better song than "Sowing Season". "Millstone", "Degausser" or "The Archer's Bows Have Broken" all would have been much better choices.
