its been years since the the release of the original guitar hero on the ps2, and there have been some great, and not so great additions to the numerous sequels track list. 
 
now with the release of the 5th just around the corner, im baffled that the song bohemian rhapsody hasnt been included....i mean the guitar solo in that song is amazing, and i could more than see it being a fun song to play in guitar hero. so why..........just why?

They can't just put any track they like on there, they have to negotiate with the rights owner.

I like bohemian rhapsody as much as the next guy, but come on the song is half piano and overdubbed vocals.  I like that song but I've heard it so much at this point, that song isn't even my favorite song on Night at the Opera.  Now March of the Black Queen would be fantastic...

I'd much rather have Stairway To Heaven than Bohemian Rhapsody. But seeing as I'm not getting any more Guitar Hero games, I hope it comes to Rock Band haha.

That's a great song but it wouldn't do well in a rhythm game. Although it will be in the inevitable GH/RB: Queen.

Because the song would be boring as fuck to play.

Isn't it on singstar: Queen? I can't wait to get that game.

Because neither Guitar Hero or Rockband have piano peripherals. Yet.

Look at All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix. It's gotta be the most requested song in GH history. It's like the ultimate song everybody wants. Still nothing. We get the Bob Dylan version of it in GH5. Unfortunately, I happen to think Bob Dylan's version of it kind of sucks.
