I've already posted Mark's answer on it last month (he said he sang ~30%). But thanks for asking again, as I did find this interview w/ Jeff Pilson and was going to post it. The last song is by Verve Pipe and I'm pretty sure he lipsynced it. As for the rest of the songs...

Here's what Jeff (who played the Bass player in Steel Dragon) said:

Blistering's Darryl Sterdan: Who sang for Mark Wahlberg?
Pilson: A guy by the name of Mike Matijevic. He used to be in Steelheart.

Blistering: Even Wahlberg has reportedly admitted he can't sing.
Pilson: You know what, that's not actually true. He may say that in humility, but I stood next to the guy for every take when we were doing the live sequence and he was singing. He actually studied vocals for this. He was belting it out every take. He was going for it and he was doin' really good. In fact, in spots they blended his voice in with the other voice just to give it a little more of an authentic live feel. Mark did his homework on this one, no question about it.

Blistering: How did he do as a frontman?
Pilson: I was just completely impressed by everything he did really. He absorbed himself into the part really deeply. He really lived the life. He had the mansion up in the hills that the movie company got him and we'd have little parties and get-togethers up there. It sort of felt like we were all in a band. It was very, very cool. And Mark as a frontman, he just looked very real to me. I mean, he's a musician so he's certainly aware of those kind of things. I never saw a real glitch. He got better as we rehearsed it, but even from day one, he had a real good clue.
