Faking the Band – You punks get off my lawn! [5/6/08]

Faking the Band is a weekly feature detailing the latest in downloadable content for Rock Band.

Happy now, you snot-nosed brats? Good, old-fashioned bands like Boston and Judas Priest weren’t “hip” enough for you, so you had to go cry and thrash and smear your oh-so-fashionable mascara in protest. “Where are the cool, modern bands?” asked your skinny jeans and overwrought bangs.

Well, the folks at Harmonix have proven yet again that they’re still “tight” with the youth culture, that they’re “down,” if you will. Rock Band will see a “Scene Pack” on May 6, named after the titular fashion/subculture:

Scene Pack [160 MS points per song / 440 for pack]

  • “This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race” – Fall Out Boy [MASTER]
  • “Date With The Night” – The Yeah Yeah Yeahs [MASTER]
  • “It Hurts” – Angels & Airwaves [MASTER]

I hope you kids are satisfied now with your pop-punk and emo-alternative. Just remember that your grandkids will think all this music is so, like, hilton. By the way, that’s future-speak for “lame/retarded.”

(Alright, fine. I lied a little. I really like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! Honestly! I have all of their albums. The other bands? Not so much.)
