Attention teens of the noughties: some bonafide legend has just compiled every Guitar Hero game tracklist into individual Spotify playlists. Somebody give this man the Order of Australia!
One Reddit user has painstakingly compiled twelve Guitar Hero tracklistings into individual Spotify playlists because, thankfully, there’s still good in the world.
Reddit has no shortage of music forums, but one Reddit user has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Rundevilrun007 has done the world a favour, taking your favourite PlayStation 2 past-time and pumping the nostalgia directly into your earholes. From the original Guitar Hero in 2005 to 2009’s Band Hero, almost every song from the console classics has been lovingly uploaded and neatly organised into a Spotify playlist for each game.
If you can’t decide between which memory you need reminiscing on, there’s also a 652-song megamix that has every Guitar Hero track Spotify has to offer. So throw the buds in and you can wistfully be reminded of a pre-Trump, post-Tamagotchi time when everyone was quoting Borat, Australia had a good soccer team, and Kevin Rudd was top dog. Thank you rundevilrun007, you’ve done a wonderful service for your fellow man.
