We've known for a couple of months now that Rush would be one of the featured artists on the next installment of the Guitar Hero music video game - Guitar Hero 5. And 2 weeks ago via an inside source I reported that the Rush track would be the live version of The Spirit of Radio from the Snakes & Arrows Live CD. This information has now been confirmed by's Rock & Roll Daily. Guitar Hero 5 will feature 85 songs and be similar to its predecessor Guitar Hero World Tour in that it is geared towards playing in a four-person band experience, including lead and bass guitar, drums, and vocals - but it will also have some new features. It's due to be released on September 1, 2009 and can be pre-ordered via Amazon at this link. Thanks to ou812112 for the heads up.
