This info is directly from the official GH support site:Does the DLC I purchased for Guitar Hero World Tour work in GH5?
Yes, for most DLC songs. You will need a free update file that you can download inside Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. The update file will enhance the features of the Guitar Hero World Tour songs by adding band moments, vocal star power, and other new features present in Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero. Currently 152 of the 158 GHWT DLC songs will work in this manner. (Note: The six downloadable Jimi Hendrix songs from Guitar Hero World Tour are not included.) (
)Do I need to re-download the original DLC songs I purchased for Guitar Hero World Tour to get the upgraded song features?
No. You only need to download the free GHWT DLC Compatibility Update offered inside Guitar Hero 5. This single file will update all of your existing DLC so re-downloading those individual songs is not necessary. What game modes in GH5 support songs from the GH Music Library?
GH Music Library songs can be played in Party Play, Quickplay, Career, Practice and all of our online and offline competitive modes, which includes the new Rockfest. Can I import songs from other Guitar Hero games I own?
In Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero, we will introduce technology to allow this to happen.

Xbox 360 and PS3
Inside the Guitar Hero 5 and Band Hero Options menu there is an Import Songs selection. After you select it you will see a listing of offers available for import, and a listing of the songs contained in each offer. Once you select an offer you will be asked for your Unique Owner ID from the back of your game manual matching the game from which the songs originate. If your code is valid, then you will be asked to pay the applicable fee, and then the download will commence. When the download is finished, the songs will appear in your set list right alongside your other songs.
In the Music Store there is a Special Offers section. After selecting Special Offers, you can navigate to the listing of the game content you wish to access. After selecting this volume of content you will be asked your Unique Owner ID from the back of your game manual matching the game from which the songs originate. If your code is valid, then you will be asked to pay the applicable fee. After purchase you will be given the option to select the songs from the volume that you want to download to your Wii’s System Memory or to an SD Card. You can select a subset of songs to download, or the entire set. These songs will be available from the store in the future to download (at no additional cost) if you decide not to download them in this initial download. When the download is finished, the songs will appear in your setlist right alongside your other songs. Guitar Hero World Tour Wii copies in Europe do not have a manual code - can owners import songs?
