This Week In Rock Band – January 8th

Submitted by on Tuesday, 6 January 2009No Comment

rock-band-11This week in Rock Band brings you all the tracks, packs or albums that you will be able to purchase for your favorite band simulator this Thursday (groupies not included but highly recommended).

If it weren’t for the inclusion (and Rock Band debut) of Snow Patrol, this would have been an all 70’s classic rock track pack.  James Gang, Jethro Tull and Deep Purple come back from the past with tracks released in 1970, 1971 and 1972 respectively.  Neat huh?

Now the question on every PS3 Rock Bandit is when and or how the hell will we get that one week we lost when Sony was pretending to go to sleep so Santa could drop by and place some Bravia HDTVs under the Sony branded Christmas tree.  Guess what, we have the answer.  No one knows.  That is the answer.  Deal with it.  That’s rock man, totally unpredictable.

deeppurpleSo with that out of the way, we can move on to the music.  We all know Deep Purple (pictured) from Rock Band 1’s “Highway Star” video intro.  Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish and Scottish alternative rock band bringing you their first single from their new album A Hundred Million Suns. Jethro Tull should be familiar to some of you as they were in the original Rock Band 2 soundtrack while James Gang are a trio from the late 60’s.  Choice band.

Without further ado, here are this week’s tracks:


  • Snow Patrol “Take Back the City”
  • Deep Purple “Space Truckin’”
  • James Gang “Funk #49”
  • Jethro Tull “Hymn 43”

Each track will cost the now standard $1.99 and are original master recordings.  Remember that all songs are compatible with Rock Band 1 & 2 software and are available through the Rock Band in-game music store and the PlayStation Store.
