Guitar Hero Aerosmith is by Activision and Neversoft. It was released on June 29th 2008 for U.S.. It takes the player through the history of Aerosmith, and stopping off at real tour spots they went, like The Super Bowl in 2001.

Game Modes

All modes which appeared in Guitar Hero III return, except for Co-Op Career. The original Co-op mode was brought back, though. Menus have been re-designed to suit the Aerosmith theme to the game. The shop has also been renamed as The Vault.

Achievements for Xbox 360 versions are named after songs by Aerosmith.


A departure from the other games, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith follows the career of Aerosmith. At first, players start each tier as two opening acts, which the band from previous titles play as, with a Rhythm Guitarist added. After finishing the songs, the audience demands the namesake band (similar to encore demands in previous titles), and then the players perform two more songs as Aerosmith. Once THAT is completed, players must perform an encore as Aerosmith.

In the last tier, before Aerosmith is called onto the stage, Joe Perry challenges the player (as a different Guitar Hero) to a Guitar Battle.


There are six tiers stages in the game.

  1. Getting the Band Together (Nipmuc High School)
  2. First Taste of Success (Max's Kansas City)
  3. The Triumphant Return (The Orpheum)
  4. International Superstars (Moscow)
  5. The Great American Band (Half-Time Show)
  6. Rock n' Roll Legends (Rock & Roll Hall of Fame)


Characters from Guitar Hero III will return, as opening acts, with new costumes based on the Guitar Hero III ones.

New characters include Joe Perry (guitarist), Tom Hamilton (bassist), Brad Whitford (guitarist) and DMC (of Run-D.M.C). All four are unlockable, and are actual guitarists. Their real-life counterparts did motion capture exclusively for the game.
