Rock Band 3 Setlist Released

August 31st, 2010 by

We’ve heard it time and time again but we can’t deny it, Rock Band is a favourite here at Midlife Gamer central. No question, it’s now the go-to game for that rhythm-action itch you can’t help but sooth without tapping your way to rock glory on plastic peripherals. If the now 2000-strong song availability for Harmonix‘s Rock Band doesn’t have you totally gripped yet, then just take a glance at some of the artists that are to feature in Rock Band 3, out at the end of this year.

EA have just released the full setlist for the game, including tracks from ‘The Smiths’, ‘Echo & The Bunnymen’, ‘Queen’, Bob Marley, John Lennon and erm, Amy Winehouse.

Have a filter through the 83 song list and hope that EA can continue to provide a platform for Rock Band to rise to dominance at the behest of the more metal-orientated Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.  As Paul DeGooyer, senior VP  of electronic games, musics and programming at MTV Games, points out, “the RB3 soundtrack represents the strongest, most diverse collection of music ever assembled for a videogame”.

Here it is…

    The mrs will be relieved “No-one Knows” has finally seen a Rock Band version.
    I finally get “Been Caught Stealing”.

    Personally I think the whole list says it all about Harmonix’s choices, i.e. pretty damn solid.
    Can you see Guitar Hero having “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”?
