Rock Band: Back in Black

I talked about the role the metal band Metallica has with the rhythm games as they were releasing a big track pack that week. Now its another great High Voltage band’s turn in the spotlight.

AC/DC has long been wanted in the likes of Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but has only recently made the transition in Rock Band 2 with “Let There Be Rock.” On November 2nd for the PS3 and Xbox360 and November 16th for Wii, AC/DC will be releasing AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack. As with their upcoming new album Black Ice, this disc based track pack will only be sold at Wal-Mart locations and their Sam Club subsidiary. Hell, It Ain’t a Bad Place to Be. If you want to play the tracks in Rock Band 1 and 2, they will come with an authentication code that will allow the tracks to be played in PS3 and Xbox 360. There are no plans to make these songs available for download at this time.

All of the 18 songs are live versions from various shows throughout their Highway to Hell carrier. Here’s the track list:

-Thunderstruck

-Shoot to Thrill
-Back in Black
-Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be
-Heatseeker
-Fire Your Guns
-Jailbreak
-The Jack
-Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
-Moneytalks
-Hell’s Bells
-High Voltage
-Whole Lotta Rosie
-You Shook Me All Night Long
-T.N.T.
-Let There Be Rock
-Highway to Hell
-For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)

 

As an avid AC/DC fan, I can say is this one Hells Bells of a comprehensive list. With a Whole Lotta music, 99 minutes worth of Heatseeking songs, that will cause me to Shake All Night Long.
Just remember Dirty Deeds are Done Dirt Cheep, Moneytalks and AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack will be available for $39.88.
For Those About to Rock, I Salute You.
