Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits is the third installment of the Guitar Hero franchise's handheld spinoff games. This time around, the feelings of hand cramping are accompanied by a soundtrack of songs made strictly from the 2000s.

Unused Song Remnants

Under the root folder of the ROM, one can find every file associated with the in-game note charts, including charts for four songs that did not make it into the final game. Although these songs cannot be accessed in-game through any means, they can be converted into other Guitar Hero chart formats, revealing them to be playable in various states of completion. None of the songs' audio stems remain in the ROM, suggesting they were pulled very late in development. Below is a list of the leftover songs.

"Generator"

A song by English indie rock band The Holloways. The chart contains full charting for both Guitar and Bass instruments with Star Power phrases added for both. Whether or not this would be a European-exclusive song is unknown.

"Give Me A Sign"

This song is by the rock band Electric Touch as part of their 2008 self-titled album. The chart is missing Star Power phrases for both Guitar and Bass on all difficulties, and does not have a Bass track created for the game's Easy difficulty. Like Generator, this song does not appear as part of any other Guitar Hero game.

"I Stand Alone"

The song by Godsmack, which would also be later seen as a DLC track for Guitar Hero 5. This song is fully charted for both Guitar and Bass with Star Power.

"Slither"

A song by Velvet Revolver, which previously appeared as a DLC song for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Guitar Hero III. This song is fully charted for both Guitar and Bass with Star Power.

Regional Differences

As with every other Guitar Hero game on the Nintendo DS, certain tracks (as well as track ordering in Career mode) differ between the North American and European releases of the game.
