This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Hmmm...
To do:
Get info about the debug data.

Guitar Hero 5 is the fifth main installment in the Guitar Hero series, adding in new features like Party Play, which basically amounts to the all the songs and DLC on shuffle mode; Rockfest mode, a variety of competitive modes; importing soundtracks from previous games, just like Rock Band, but you could only import a little under half of the previous games' on-disc soundtracks, and all DLC from World Tour (except for the two Jimi Hendrix DLC packs); and Challenges in career mode, where you could earn in-game items by performing certain objectives, whether on a specific intrument or for the whole band.

Unused Charts

Under the DATA/files/songs folder, there are a handful of charts that are not used in the game.

addicted.pak.ngc

Possibly referring to "Addicted" by Saving Abel (which was later released as DLC), this chart consists of a single sustain note on all parts.

aztectomb.pak.ngc

Perhaps most interestingly of all, this is a chart of a live version of "Black Dog" by Led Zeppelin. Only Expert is fully charted (lower difficulties have a placeholder note), and Star Power is charted on Guitar, Bass, and Drums. The video on the right features the song being played on the fan game Clone Hero, with vocals played on Rock Band 2 (note that Clone Hero does not support 5-lane drums like in Guitar Hero, so the song is retrofitted with 4-lane drums, with blue and green notes as blue and green tom notes and orange notes as green cymbals).
