Posted on

Rock_band_tp_2On November 17, owners of Rock Band and Rock Band 2 can start jamming to a bunch of new songs. ‘Rock Band’ Track Pack Volume 2  — for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, and Wii — includes hits by such artists as Blondie, Lynyrd Syknyrd, Fall Out Boy, Nine Inch Nails, and Smashing Pumpkins. Like Volume 1 (available only for the PS2), this 20-track disc can be played as a stand-alone game; Xbox 360 and PS3 owners with online connections may have already downloaded many of these songs.

Check out the complete track list after the jump.

All in all, it’s a pretty decent selection: a solid mix ofgenres and decades. The NIN and Pixies tracks interest me the most, and, in the right frame of mind, the Crüe’s “Saints” could be pretty awesome. I’m thinking “Monkey Gone to Heaven” is probably the easiest song. What aboutyou? Are there any songs here you’re particularly happy to see? Or are youdisappointed to discover that a favorite track or band is still MIA?
