Weezer Adds an Awesome Three-Pack and a Janis Joplin Classic Joins the Rock Band Music Library

September 13th marks the 200th week of Rock Band DLC, and we’re celebrating with 4 amazing tracks from fan favorites!

Weezer add to their impressive 12 songs playable in Rock Band with another amazing pack of hits. “Weezer Pack 04” lands this Tuesday and brings 3 of the band's biggest songs to the Rock Band catalog. From the band’s 5th album, Make Believe, “Perfect Situation” makes its way to the store. “Perfect Situation” spent 4 weeks atop the Billboard Modern Rock charts and makes a perfect addition to any pop rock fan’s catalog. The pack also features two songs from 2001’s Weezer (commonly referred to as “The Green Album”) –“Island in the Sun” and “Hash Pipe”, the latter of which features the band’s first Pro Guitar/Bass upgrade!

In addition, classic rock fans can also pick up the quintessential “Me and Bobby McGee” from Janis Joplin and the Full Tilt Boogie Band. Joplin’s version appeared on her 1970’s Pearl and became the second posthumous number one single in rock & roll history [the first was Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On The) Dock of the Bay”, also available in Rock Band].

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.
