Rock Band 3
Next Week's Rock Band Tracks are a Weird Science

The Rock Band DLC truck rumbles on, with a couple of new tracks headed our way next week.

First up is Oingo Boingo’s “Weird Science” from the seminal 80’s movie of the same name, in which two dorky kids make a woman and then aliens turn up and it all gets a bit odd. It’s awesome!

And then last up is “Rosanna” from Toto’s 1982 album Toto IV. Both of the tunes feature keyboard support, which is nice.

Single Tracks - 160 Microsoft Points each. X = 80 Microsoft Points per track for a Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade O= support for keyboards

  • Oingo Boingo – “Weird Science” O X
  • Toto – “Rosanna” O

(All tracks are original master recordings)

Look out for them on the Xbox Live Marketplace from March 12th.

You would think that sense they won't be coming out with any more songs soon that the they would at least try to get some really good ones.

Finally some Toto. Would have loved "Hold the Line" or "Africa" though.

It seems the author of this news post has never seen the movie "Weird Science" because at no point in that movie do any aliens or anything similar appear.

They weren't aliens, they were mutant bikers. They were conjured up by Lisa so the boys would grow some balls and impress their girlfriends.

@4 I think he's referring to the biker gang toward the end.

They better have something fucking amazing for the last couple weeks if they are only doing 2 songs this week. I'm talking Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Genesis, Meat Loaf, Bruce Springsteen, ANYTHING.

@4,6 & 9
He might also be referring to that green thing in the kitchen (I don't wanna give a spoiler). But if you've never seen Weird Science you're missing out!!!!!

Before RB ends I would like more meatloaf (the whole bat out of hell album) all night long and since you've been gone by Rainbow.som Muse , the whole hysteria album by def leppard and many more classic rock songs!

For all of those saying they would have preferred "Africa" or "Hold the Line" I read on the Rock Band forums that Toto was originally supposed to get a 3-pack but "Licensing is weird". Presumably, the other two songs were Africa and Hold the Line.
