Rock Band’s New Classic Rock Track Pack

Sure it’s fun to play modern songs on Rock Band – from Angels and Airwaves to Avenged Sevenfold there are plenty of tracks that keep things contemporary. But heading back in time can be a blast, too. That’s what the latest Track Pack release is all about: dealing with the classics. And classic can have a few different meaning these days. The ’60s are represented by Jethro Tull, the Who, and James Gang (all hail Joe Walsh!). The ’70s stretch from Boston to Benatar. And punks have their say, too.

Those who can’t get enough of Pete Townsend and company even have the ultra classic “Baba O’Reilly” to mess with in this Pack. Wouldn’t want to be the guy trying play Keith Moon‘s part perfectly. Get back to us on which of these is the most fun.
