Named the greatest guitar player of all time by Rolling Stone magazine in its recent “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” feature, there are few unfamiliar with the legendary songwriter and performer Jimi Hendrix. The guitar virtuoso’s playing style redefined rock and roll, infusing his unparalleled technical ability with an extreme and experimental sound that wowed audiences, changing music history for decades to come. On December 20th, Harmonix is proud to be adding seven classic Hendrix tracks to the Rock Band Music Store.
This week we're bringing rockabilly to the RBN, along with 20 other songs!
Hi. My name is Carolyn, and, though I claim to be a prog rock fan, it’s more accurate to say that I’m a Rush fan. It isn’t that I don’t listen to Yes, or Genesis, or Pink Floyd, or, lately, Andromeda (thank you, Rock Band Network!) - it’s just that Rush is where it all started for me.
What makes a song fun in Rock Band? This batch of community-recommended RBN songs includes an infectious punk rock song (good stuff), a finger-bleeding instrumental on guitar (of course), and four pop songs (what?) - but, as the contributors are quick to note, it's pop that rocks. If you're out for a challenge beyond seething metal, take a look.
Rush adds three tracks to the Rock Band Music Store and Black Veil Brides and Volbeat each add a single for only $0.99!
