Jefferson Airplane, Santana, and Blood, Sweat & Tears Add Songs to Rock Band, Plus DragonForce’s Rock Band Debut!

Next week, we’re bringing you a three-pack of songs from artists who performed at one of the best known (and expensive to refer to) music festivals of all time as part of the Days of Peace Pack 01. The pack features the breakout hit from Jefferson Airplane, “Somebody to Love,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is listed in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. “Spinning Wheel” from American rockers Blood, Sweat & Tears will also be included in next week’s pack. The song was released in 1969, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 1970. Santana’s classic song, “Black Magic Woman,” will also be featured in Days of Peace Pack 01. The song was recorded in 1970 and helped propel the album Abraxas to No. 1 and earn quadruple platinum status in 1986.

DragonForce, who fans may remember from other music video games, are making their debut for Rock Band 3 next week with “Through the Fire and Flames” and “Operation Ground and Pound,” both from the band’s third album, Inhuman Rampage. “Through the Fire and Flames” is one of DragonForce’s biggest hits and reached No. 86 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has a Pro Guitar upgrade available for Rock Band 3.

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.
