These days it’s hard to talk about games without throwing in some online component. Whether it’s multiplayer, or downloadable patches or add-ons, anyone without this privilege may feel a little bummed. But fear not, last generation and Wii brethren. Hope is coming to you in the form of Rock Band tracks.
Anyone who picked up Rock Band on PS2 shouldn’t feel left out of the technological loop any longer because they too will be able to rock out to songs that were previously only available on the PSN and Xbox LIVE. When the Wii version comes out next month, they will be able to take part in the excitement as well. The disc entitled The Rock Band Track Pack Volume 1 will be released on July 15 and will contain twenty master tracks from twenty different artists. Expect to pay a nice 30 bucks for this one. What songs will be on it you ask?
- 30 Seconds to Mars–“The Kill”
- All American Rejects–“Move Along”
- Blink – 182–“All the Small Things”
- Boston–“More Than a Feeling”
- David Bowie–“Moonage Daydream”
- Faith No More–“We Care A Lot”
- Grateful Dead–“Truckin'”
- The Hives–“Die, All Right!”
- KISS–“Calling Dr. Love”
- Lynyrd Skynyrd–“Gimme’ Three Steps”
- Nine Inch Nails–“March of the Pigs”
- Oasis–“Live Forever”
- The Police–“Synchronicity II”
- Queens of the Stone Age–“Little Sister”
- Ramones–“Teenage Lobotomy”
- Smashing Pumpkins–“Siva”
- Stone Temple Pilots–“Interstate Love Song”
- Weezer–“Buddy Holly”
- Wolfmother–“Joker & the Thief”
Granted, this is only a sample of all the downloadable tracks that have been released so far for Rock Band. The title does say “Volume 1” though, so we should expect plenty more to come in the future. Maybe full albums will be placed on disc as well, who knows.
