In 1972, The Edgar Winter Group achieved commercial success with their fourth studio album, They Only Come Out at Night. The record contained two of Winters’ biggest hits – “Free Ride” and “Frankenstein” – both of which are headed to the Rock Band Music Store with full support for keyboards. A Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade will also be available for the instrumental jam, “Frankenstein.”
More than 25 years later, metal band KoRn was getting its first taste of mainstream success. “Freak on a Leash,” off of 1998’s Follow the Leader, was one of the band’s most successful singles. The group found success again with its single “Falling Away From Me,” from 1999’s Issues, which peaked at number one on the Billboard charts.
