Penned exclusively for “Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock” which hits stores today [September 28], Dave Mustaine has outdone himself with a new track called “Sudden Death”.
While the brand new Guitar Hero features a story-based adventure mode for the first time in the games’ career (voiced by Kiss‘ Gene Simmons no less), players will have to master Megadeth‘s “Sudden Death” to win the game.
You can now own the MP3 by visiting iTunes or listen to it streaming in the player below!
Pop Evil (Universal Republic) recently teamed up with former UFC Heavyweight champion Frank Mir to collaboratively promote both Pop Evil‘s newest single, “Last Man Standing”, and Mir’s main event fight against Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipović at UFC 119, which took place this past Saturday (September 25th). The track can be heard while watching exclusive footage of Mir training at his Suffer Training Center in Las Vegas, NV.
Mir’s intense training sessions paid off, he won the fight by devastating KO in the third round over a very dangerous opponent in “Crop Cop”. To watch the footage of Mir training set to “Last Man Standing”, head over to Pop Evil‘s Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/popevil
“We are excited to debut our new single with such an amazing UFC fighter. Frank Mir is a proven warrior, and we are proud to have him as a fan of Pop Evil,” exclaimed Pop Evil vocalist Leigh Kakaty.
When asked about his participation in the video Mir stated “Once I heard the song, I immediately wanted to be a part of this. Pop Evil has a great sound and I think they are about to blow up!”
“Last Man Standing” comes from Pop Evil‘s sophomore album ‘War Of Angels’, which will be available this winter through Universal Republic.
In addition to the training video, Pop Evil and Mir are teaming up to give away a signed Dean guitar and shirts from Mir’s own Suffer Apparel clothing line. More details can be found on the Pop Evil Facebook page.

A respected musician among both his peers and his fans, Yngwie continues to play and compose at a level of mastery that many career musicians only dream of.
