R.E.M. RETURNS TO ROCK BAND
The eagerly-awaited R.E.M. Rock Band download pack is now available at rockband.com.
Here’s what Rock Band has to say about the download pack:
R.E.M. has always had a special place in the hearts of Rock Band fans. Long-time fans of the game probably remember rocking out to “Orange Crush” on the original game disc. And since then, the single “Losing My Religion” has been a staple in the game’s song library. This week in DLC, we up the ante with eight songs by the band, spanning their illustrious career.
Starting in their early years with the band’s first single, “Radio Free Europe,” and criss-crossing all the way to their latest album with “Living Well Is the Best Revenge,” the pack is filled with the band’s trademark alt-rock stylings and enigmatic lyrics. Guitarists will enjoy jamming along to Peter Buck’s distinctive guitar play from “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?”. Not to be outdone, vocalists will be sure to check out “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” to see if they can keep up with Michael Stipe’s rapid-fire cacophony of verses. And of course you can always parody your own Weird Al-inspired version of their Green album hit, “Stand.”
Also available this week are “Driver 8,” “Living Well Is the Best Revenge,” “Superman,” and “These Days.”
These tracks will be available the week of October 5th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii. Individual tracks will be $1.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and $2.00 on Wii. “R.E.M. Pack 01” will be available for $13.49 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The BASEBALL PROJECT releases another Broadside Ballad:
Scott McCaughey says: “Yeah, this time we’ve come up with some fearless post-season “predictions”, probably every bit as accurate as our “Cubs 2010” and “30 Doc” songs… The latest story and free song download are available. Go, Giants!”
