Rock Band 2 to have 500 tracks by the end of the year


First off, I’d like to tell you that the good people behind Rock Band 2 have promised 500 tracks by the end of the year, according to Entertainment Weekly. Those tracks might not all be gems, though, as it seems there’s really going to be a big push towards full album downloads this time around. You can currently download a handful of full albums for the original Rock Band, but here’s what’s coming for Rock Band 2.

  • Foo Fighters – The Colour and the Shape
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magik
  • Jane’s Addiction – Nothing’s Shocking
  • Megadeth – Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying
  • Stevie Ray Vaughn – Texas Flood
  • No Doubt – Best Of Collection

The first four albums, hoo-ray. I’d definitely buy Foo Fighters and Megadeth, then the Chili Peppers and Jane’s Addiction if I had a little moolah left over. I’m not a huge Stevie Ray Vaughn fan, though, and No Doubt is about as appealing to me as watching an episode of The Hills.
