This Week In Rock Band – Alternative J.E.W. Country

Submitted by on Tuesday, 24 February 2009No Comment

rock-band-11After a brief hiatus This 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).

Come Thursday we will have two packs for our rockin’ delight.  Three tracks from Jimmy Eat World (where’s ‘The Middle’ you ask?  In the game already, that’s where) and a whopping five different alternative country artists laying down their best least-known tracks.   If you are wondering how the hell you are supposed to rock to country music then you must see the movie Crank.  Awesome stuff.

Without further ado, here is this week’s double track pack:

Alt Country Track Pack

  • Drive By Truckers – 3 Dimes Down
  • Lucinda Williams – Can’t Let Go
  • Neko Case – People Got a Lot of Nerve
  • Old 97s – Time Bomb (LIVE)
  • Steve Earle – Satellite Radio

Jimmy Eat World Track Pack

  • Jimmy Eat World – Futures
  • Jimmy Eat World – Lucky Denver Mint
  • Jimmy Eat World – Sweetness

All tracks are master recordings and will cost the standard $1.99 per track, $5.49 for the World Eating Jim pack and $8.49 for the Ctrl-Alt-Del Country pack.  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.
