After about, well, almost forever Axl Rose finally released, the highly anticipated album, Chinese Democracy. And this spring you’ll be able to play it in Rock Band. GNR already have one of their latest tracks in the game, ‘Shacklers Revenge’, but now you’ll be able to play it in all of it’s…mediocrity. Ok I don’t like it, but for those who do it’s there. Enjoy.

It’s that time again folks. Harmonix have dropped some knowlege about what’s coming to Rock Band next week. It’s Scottish trio The Fratellis. Three songs from their, sort of alright, debut album, ‘Costello Music’,  will be appearing next week. Good news for fans of The Fratellis, indie music and…Scotland? Continue reading

For those who didn’t know, Pearl Jam’s album Ten is coming to Rock Band next month and you might just get more if Best Buy have anything to do with it. An offer from the american big box retailer has surfaced which says that those who pre-order the re-release of the album, due out March 24th, will get a code for three more Pearl Jam tracks for Rock Band. Those tracks are:

  • Brother
  • Alive (Drop In The Park Concert Version)
  • State Of Love And Trust (Drop In The Park Concert Version)

So it looks like Pearl Jam fans might be forced to pick the album up if they want as much Pearl Jam as they can get. There’s no indication if these tracks will be coming for a price, but I suspect they will do at some point. Either way, if you want them early pre-order the remaster of Ten.

After a pretty prolongued absence, ‘Next Week In Rock Band’ is back. This week we’ve got some classic rock on our hands courtesy of Roy Orbision. A few weeks ago it was rumored (and pretty much confirmed) that Orbision’s music would be making an appearance as DLC in Harmonix’s popular music game and now it’s official. Hit the jump for the tracklist, pricing. Continue reading



Roy Orbison To Hit Rock Band? by Anthony Barlow

Now this is a little unexpected. It seems that, music legend, Roy Orbison will be making his way into Rock Band/Rock Band 2. CMT (Country Music Television) have let it slip, when advertising their Boxing Day show ‘Top 20 Countdown’, that, well, here’s the quote.

“Plus, get details on how you can rock out with The Soul of Rock and Roll with the upcoming release of the Roy Orbison Pack for Rock Band 2 consoles”.

There is a pretty big Rock Band ad next to the piece and seeing as CMT is an MTV channnel and MTV games publish Rock Band, this seems pretty likely. Unexpected, but there’s a possibility of awesomeness. Bring on ‘I Drove All Night’!

Harmonix answered many a prayer last week, announcing that Rock Band players can have some classic No Doubt to rock out too, next week…not so much. Harmonix announced a few weeks back that there was a Country music themed pack coming to their game, but I don’t think it’s what people expected.

I’m a big fan of guys like Johnny Cash (and on occasion Kenny Rogers), so I was expecting something pretty damn good, I am bitterly dissapointed. Hit the jump to find out why. Continue reading
