As the Dash update went a bit OT with RB and GH thought I'd do a thread for them. Rock Band Info: (PS3, Xbox 360) http://www.rockband.com/ Rock Band allows gamers to perform music from the world’s biggest rock artists with their friends as a virtual band using drum, bass/lead guitar and microphone peripherals, in addition to offering deep online connectivity. Built on deals with the world’s biggest record labels and music publishers, the music featured in Rock Band spans all genres of rock and include many of the master recordings from the biggest songs and artists of all time. Bleow are screens and pics of Guitar (used for Guitar and Bass and Drum Kit, there will also be a mic). Harmonix has also officially announced the first 16 Rock Band songs that will ship with the game. They are as follows, noting that any track with an asterisk is a cover (so yes, the majority are based on master recordings!): 1970s The Who - "Won't Get Fooled Again" Mountain - "Mississippi Queen"* David Bowie - "Suffragette City" Black Sabbath - "Paranoid"* Blue Oyster Cult - "Don't Fear the Reaper" The Ramones - "Rockaway Beach" 1980s Rush - "Tom Sawyer"* Bon Jovi - "Wanted Dead or Alive" 1990s Nirvana - "In Bloom" Stone Temple Pilots - "Vasoline" Weezer - "Say It Ain't So" Foo Fighters - "Learn to Fly" Metallica - "Enter Sandman" 2000s The Hives - "Main Offender" The Strokes - "Reptilia" Queens of the Stone Age - "Go With the Flow" DLC: As part of the ongoing explosion of juicy Rock Band info at E3 (need we say anything more than METALLICA ARE IN ROCK BAND?), MTV and Harmonix have announced that the game will be the first to offer full-length albums for download. Yes, full albums! There's no doubt that this is an important step forward for the genre, allowing fans to play all the way through some of the most classic rock albums of all time with friends. In short, it's going to be brilliant. So what's the first full album that will be available for the game after its release? The Who's 1971 rock classic, Who's Next. Of course, that's only the beginning - Harmonix is promising weekly content updates for the game after launch, so you can expect many more exciting artist and album announcements over the next few months.
