Written Wednesday, July 18, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Harmonix has announced that Rock Band Blitz is but a month away from launching on XBLA, bringing with it 20 tracks from a variety of major artists, as well as the ability to export tracks from the thousands already available in the existing Rock Band library.
Taking its cue from Harmonix's early titles, Frequency and Amplitude, Rock Band Blitz doesn't require any peripherals (other than a controller, of course), which means you needn't dig out the guitars, drums et al. Here's the first 15 tracks originally revealed in May and four new tracks revealed today, highlighted in bold.
- All-American Rejects - Kids in the Street.
- Barenaked Ladies - One Week.
- Blink-182 - Always.
- Collective Soul - Shine.
- Elton John - I'm Still Standing.
- Fall Out Boy - A Little Less Sixteen Candles....
- Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks.
- Great White - Once Bitten Twice Shy.
- Iron Maiden - Wicker Man.
- Living Coulour - Cult of Personality.
- P!nk - Raise Your Glass.
- Quiet Riot - Metal Health.
- Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl.
- Shinedown - Diamond Eyes.
- Tears for Fears - Shout.
- Avenged Sevenfold – “So Far Away”
- Fun. ft. Janelle Monáe – “We Are Young”
- Kool & The Gang – “Jungle Boogie”
- My Chemical Romance – “Sing”
There are more tracks to come for Rock Band Blitz that will no doubt be announced prior to the game's launch date. Rock Band Blitz will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade on August 29th for 1200 Microsoft Points. Rock and rooooooll!
