As September 14 approaches, the fake music Gods are smiling and saying “Let there be rock!” Developer Harmonix and publishers EA and MTV will bring forth Rock Band 2, the follow up to last year’s immensely successful Rock Band.
The new game features a slew of new songs, venues and options for full-band play to make for a more streamlined experience. Rock Band 2 also features a Battle of the Bands mode that updates every few days to keep play fresh. Here’s a list of some of the songs featured in-game:
Kansas- “Carry On Wayward Son”
Foo Fighters- “Everlong”
Elvis Costello- “Pump It Up”
AC/DC- “Let There Be Rock”
Journey- “Any Way You Want It”
Survivor- “Eye of the Tiger”
And the list goes on. But one of the great features is the ability to upload most of the songs from the first Rock Band to be used in 2 – for $5. That leaves hundreds of songs immediately at your disposal, considering the downloadable content that has been released. So what are you waiting for? Time to pick up the plastic instruments again!
