Since 1996 Fueled By Ramen Records has pushed to build an ever-growing roster of the best and brightest punk-inspired rock/pop bands. Celebrating its 15th anniversary, Fueled by Ramen had one of its biggest years yet in 2011, with a string of hits from bands like Gym Class Heroes, Paramore, Panic at the Disco, and more. With “Fueled By Ramen Pack 01,” some of those hits come to Rock Band on December 27th!
“You Make Me Feel,” the hit single off of Cobra Starship’s fourth studio album, Night Shades, kicks off the pack. The song features female singer-songwriter Sabi, who lends her vocals to the dance pop hit. Gym Class Heroes’ “Stereo Hearts,” featuring Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, Panic at the Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” Paramore’s “Pressure,” and Sublime with Rome’s “Panic” are also included in the pack. Rounding things out is Travie McCoy, featuring chart-topping singer-writer Bruno Mars, with the hit track “Billionaire.”
Fueled by Ramen is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary with a book and DVD, featuring interviews with Paramore’s Haley Williams, and live performances from Fueled by Ramen recording artists. More info can be found on Fueled by Ramen’s official online store.

** Dates for Rock Band game tracks are tentative and subject to change. **Discuss!Over the course of 2011, the Rock Band Network released an average of 15 songs a week, bringing the RBN catalogue on Xbox 360 to over 1500 songs. Assuming an average length of 3.5 minutes a song (we didn't run any math to get this number - it's a conservative guess by HMXLachesis), that means you could play RBN songs on Rock Band for over three days straight without repeating. That's a lot of music!
Next week, the RBN release is on hiatus for the holidays. However, community authors are still moving content through the pipeline, and we'll release all approved content on Thursday, January 5 of the new year.
