DJ Hero 2 Artist List Announced

By Saint Devourer, 6 years ago
Activision, in either a move of pure marketing brilliance or simply going through the wrong channels, announced the artist list for the sequel to last year's DJ Hero, DJ Hero 2, but instead of announcing it on their own website or another gaming website, they put the giant 108-artist list up on Entertainment Weekly's website. Seems odd, but once you realize that the list is made of primary top 100 artists, it actually makes a lot of sense.

But enough of that. Here's the list of all 108 artists, in it's entirety.

No bonus points for guessing that Daft Punk would be in it again, but Metallica? I guess Guitar Hero: Metallica wasn't enough for them.

DJ Hero 2 will also support two turntables and a microphone, as well as having plenty of "new social multiplayer modes".

Look for DJ Hero 2 this October.
