Beastie Boys, Heart, James Brown and Rufus singles coming to Rock Band

by William Schwartz


Harmonix is bringing some classics to its Rock Band catalog with songs from a variety of artists.

The company just celebrated its 3000th song added to its library this week and isn’t looking back. This week we get a new song as well as a classic from the Beastie Boys, a little bit of funk from Rufus and James Brown and finally some classic rock with Heart.

Definitely a nice variety coming next week. Here are the songs:

• Beastie Boys – “Make Some Noise”
• Beastie Boys – “No Sleep till Brooklyn”
• Heart – “Barracuda” X
• James Brown– “Super Bad, Pts. 1 & 2” X
• Rufus (ft. Chaka Khan) – “Tell Me Something Good ”

X denotes a pro guitar/bass upgrade.

And here are the prices:

$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points) per song
$2.00 USD (200 Wii Points™) per song
$0.99 USD (100 Wii Points/80 Microsoft Points), £0.59 UK, €0.79 EU per song for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade

I know I personally can’t wait to upset all of my neighbors singing “No Sleep till Brooklyn” way too loudly, but what about you? Are you excited about any of these tracks?
