The Top Gun Anthem is releasing for Guitar Hero III for the Independence Day Weekend. Genius. I haven’t been this excited for a free song download since the Halo 3 freebie. Twenty-two years ago, this was the song that introduced young adolescent boys to the bad-ass guitar solo. I still get chills when I hear this song play. Now, to go to Amazon.com to get a DRM-free version of this song and “Danger Zone” and secretly download that other song by Berlin, which I hope they bring to Rock Band, so I can do the vocals. Aw, hell. I’ll just buy the whole album at the Best Buy bargain bin.
“TOP GUN ANTHEM” TO LAND ON GUITAR HERO® III: LEGENDS OF ROCK AS FREE DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT FOR FOURTH OF JULY
Enter the danger zone with free downloadable song only on Guitar Hero III®: Legends of Rock
Tuesday 1st July/… Grab your wingman and fire up the F-14 for the announcement today of a special Fourth of July treat for Activision, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) Guitar Hero III®: Legends of Rock fans. Beginning July 3, 2008, the legendary, GRAMMY® award-winning “Top Gun Anthem” will be available as a free downloadable song for the game.
The instrumental, guitar-heavy theme was immortalized in the hit film that inspired a generation of young men to awkwardly serenade women at bars, perform perfectly-timed “flipside” high fives and threaten to “buzz the tower.”
The song will be available as a free download to Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock mavericks and their wingmen everywhere for Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and in the PLAYSTATION®Store for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system on July 3, 2008.
