Rock Band Gets Rush and Red Hot Chili Peppers DLC This Week

Okay, it still doesn’t qualify as something that was atop my wishlist for Rock Band DLC, but I know plenty of people who will enjoy this — both Rush and Red Hot Chili Peppers will be releasing a pair of (master) tracks on the Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow, and on the PlayStation Store on Thursday. As usual, the tracks will cost 160 Microsoft points ($1.99) each.

  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Snow” (Hey Oh)
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Tell Me Baby”
  • Rush – “Closer to the Heart”
  • Rush – “Working Man” (Vault Edition) alternate-take master

Not a half-bad selection. “Working Man” was actually released earlier this year for Rock Band, but that was a cover — and this is special. Not only is it a master track, but it’s an alternate take of the song with a different solo that has never been released. How awesome is it that something like that is being released first through a videogame?

Neil Peart would DESTROY the Rockband drum kit with his playing

Indeed he would. Peart comes in second for my greatest drummers of all time (first being Stewart Copeland, don’t flame me about that, I’ve just always preferred The Police, especially after meeting and interviewing Sting’s son and his band Fiction Plane). I’m glad Rock Band is bringing back better known songs to their huge list of DLC.

good for you, but Peart is just a very talented technical drummer, u and all his worhipers can keep watching star trek or just get out and buy your own drumkit and rock someone’s life. is better to try and fail than to live through someone else’s success… ok I overreacted but I just uttetly dislike people who put musicians on pedestals and kill the true meaning of music
