Rock Band 2 is official!

Man, every now and then I get blindsided by an announcement that I just wasn't expecting. Sure, we all knew that Harmonix was working on Rock Band 2, but I really didn't expect to hear anything official until E3 at the earliest. Well the cat's out of the bag, so read on for some highlights of what to expect about this awesome sequel.

More Offspring coming soon to Rock Band

More Offspring coming soon to Rock Band

I was born in the 80's, which means I did most of my growing up in the 90's listening to alternative music. I've really been happy that Rock Band has been bringing back some of the songs I know and love so that a new generation can really enjoy them. I listened to a good bit of Offspring back in the day, which is why I'm happy to hear that they're going to be adding more tracks to the game in the future.

First look at Rock Band Wii

First look at Rock Band Wii

Every now and then I open the door to find the FedEx guy holding some very nondescript brown boxes. These are my favorite days, as it generally means something new to review has arrived. The latest boxes weren't quite so nondescript, as they had the words Rock Band, and Wii.

Rock Band Weekly DLC – Avenged Sevenfold, Offspring and Crooked X

Rock Band Weekly DLC – Avenged Sevenfold, Offspring and Crooked X

I'm starting to like this trend of seeing new music released on Rock Band at the same time it is released to the general public for purchase. The latest track to follow this trend comes to us from The Offspring. Check out the list of tracks available today after the jump.

  • Avenged Sevenfold “Afterlife”
  • Avenged Sevenfold“Critical Acclaim”
  • The Offspring “Hammerhead”
  • Crooked X “Rock ‘n’ Roll Dream”

There is no track pack this week, so you'll have to pick and choose which tracks you want. The first three listed are going to set you back the usual $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360), while the Crooked X track will only run $.99 (80 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360).

Rumor – New Rock Band DLC leaked

Rumor – New Rock Band DLC leaked

I hate watching commercials. I don't watch much TV, and would like to get the most out of the times I do sit in front of the boob tube. This would be why most of what I watch is already pre-recorded, thanks to a DVR. However, commercials do serve a purpose. Not only do they inform potential customers of products and services for sale, they also leak the occasional bit of unannounced news.

Some Clues to the absent Who’s Next DLC

Some Clues to the absent Who’s Next DLC

So we've all been waiting around to hear the announcement of when the album “Who's Next” will be showing up on Rock Band. I know that I was pretty surprised when the first full album ended up being from the Cars. Well, while Harmonix has made no official announcements on the matter, we may have found a cause for the delay, straight from the mouth of Pete Townshend himself. Hit the jump for a quote.

The Firestix LED drumsticks

If your plain boring wood Rock Band drumsticks just aren't cool enough for you, you might check out these shiny little LED drumsticks. Although glowing drumsticks aren't for everyone, I am definitely comfortable enough with my geeky tendencies that I'd be happy to play with a set of these.
