New Foo Fighters Tracks Roll Onto Rock Band With Run-DMC & Lordi

by on May 6, 2011

After earlier this week when Harmonix hit the massive milestone of one hundred million tracks having been downloaded from the Rock Band Music Store in its lifetime, the train won’t stop rolling as the development team happily announce six more new tracks to add to that already-gargantuan list. Rock Band favourites the Foo Fighters have four new tracks to add to their total – which already includes the entire album “The Colour & The Shape”. Accompanying those tracks will be a classic Run-DMC cut and the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest winning entry from Lordi.

The theatrical Finnish Heavy Metallers Lordi bring their number one hit “Hard Rock Hallelujah” to the Music Store – which fantastically won them the dubious honour of being crowned Eurovision winners back in 2006. Pairing up with Lordi are the hugely influential Hip-Hoppers from Hollis, Queens – Run-DMC. They bring classic track “King of Rock” to the party, from their 1985 record of the same name.

The new Foo Fighters tracks consist of new songs “Rope” and “Walk”, both taken from the hit new album “Wasting Light”. Add to that “Long Road to Ruin” from their previous album and “Stacked Actors” from classic 1999 album “There is Nothing Left to Lose” – and Foo Fighters fans are spoiled for choice. Harmonix have even promised that Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades for existing back catalogue songs “Monkey Wrench” and “The Pretender” will also be coming to the Rock Band Music Store in the same week.

These tracks will be available for Xbox 360 and Wii on May 10th and on PlayStation 3 on May 19th in North America or May 18th in Europe (PSN online status allowing). They will cost £0.99 (160 Microsoft Points / 200 Wii Points) per song. The Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades for “Rope”, “Monkey Wrench” and “The Pretender” will cost an additional £0.59 (80 Microsoft Points/100 Wii Points). All tracks are original artist recordings.
