17/05/2015 – Jack White-Lazaretto (2014)

Let the hype begin…



Later in the year Rockband makes its over due return. So far nothing has been known about how the game will be set up. Will it be the same as Rockband 3? Starting at small venues and working up to stadiums? Or will go back to basics and just be about the songs, with no story arc? Either way I can’t wait for November to find out. Another things that’s been kept under wraps is the all-important song list. Some has speculated it’ll be a mixture of old and new and that Ed Sheeran will be making an appearance. This week Harmonix, the developers, have begun the teasing by releasing six songs that will feature in the finished game.



These s by releasing six songs that will feature in the fninhsed game. pearance. This week back to basics and just be abotu ix are:


Aveng Sevenfold-Hail to the King





Fleetwood Mac-You Make Loving Fun





Jack White-Lazaretto





The Killers-Somebody Told Me





Spin Doctors-Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong





The Who-The Seeker





While this is a good start, let’s hope that there are more newer bands making an appearance in the full game!

    Hmm… I tend to like the oldies: Fleetwood Mac and The Who 🙂 Either way, it should be another fun game.

  2. I do wonder why a product aimed (I am assuming) towards teens and 20-somethings would have its majority of music come from 20 or more years ago.A Who song from 1970? I know my son, who is in his mid 20’s, enjoys a lot of solid gold, but he would also expect “his” more modern music. Perhaps this game (and I don’t play them) are geared towards parents playing with their teens. That’s the only thing I can think of.

    • A lot of songs from the past have good rhythm sections and intricate guitar parts. Is you buy the special guitars for the game you can actually play along with the song note for note. I’m not saying that modern music isn’t as rhythmic or intricate, just look at Mastodon. Also when you play not everyone has the same musical tastes and it’s good to have something that everyone knows, so you hit that middle ground.

  3. Oh goodness, Avenged Sevenfold!! Love them and seriously who doesn’t like The Who?
