“They are awesome songs with great titles” speaks the Harmonix community manager over on their forums, as two new songs – the second bit of DLC after a 21 month break – come to the Rock Band music store.
Those songs? Tenacious D and Weezer, but it’s the names of them, and the “great titles” comment which really make things interestingly. Let’s take a look:
• Tenacious D – “Rize Of The Fenix”
• Weezer – “Back To The Shack”
Well, would you look at that, those great titles hint at rising and returning respectively. These are available now for 99p on the Rock Band store for Xbox 360 and PS3.
It’s hard to say whether a Rock Band return could be successful – Rock Band 3 was the pinnacle of the plastic peripheral rhythm genre, and it’s hard to think how anything could better that. But if those instruments still work, then there’s no doubt I’ll be digging out my plastic guitars and drum kits and getting the band back together.
