Cheap Trick & EMF Add Songs to Rock Band

The songs in this week’s DLC releases are full of big guitars and even bigger hooks, bringing 4 more party classics to your Rock Band Library!

Cheap Trick kick off the week with a 3-pack of their biggest hits. As one of the world’s greatest live rock acts, it’s only fitting that we have iconic live performances of two tracks – “I Want You to Want Me” and “Surrender”, straight from one of their masterpieces – 1978’s Cheap Trick at Budokan. The original studio recording of “Dream Police” rounds out this outstanding 3-pack headed to your console this Tuesday!

In addition, Rock Band fans should rejoice with a collective “Oh!” at the appearance of EMF’s 1990 chart-topping hit, “Unbelievable”. This re-record of everyone’s favorite party jam is sure to get your whole band up on their feet.

As always, songs available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3 feature five-button guitar and bass parts, drums, Pro Drums, and keys, Pro Keys and harmonies, where applicable. Some songs also feature Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades available for an additional $0.99 upgrade download. For more information about Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades, visit our support section. Rock Band 3 Pro Mode requires Rock Band Pro-compatible instrument controllers.
