Rock Band gets track list

Five decades' worth.

EA and MTV have finally unravelled the track list for Rock Band.

It's made up of music from as far back as the 1960s up to tracks from the current day, weighing in at 58 diverse recordings in total. What's more, 51 of those are based on original master tracks, so covers are kept to a minimum.

Presumably that helps you believe you actually are Jon Bon Jovi with your lovely blonde hair and really very tight trousers on. Helps you get the high notes or something.

So far we are only being shown 45 of the final line-up, with 13 said to be secret unlockables from both established and up and coming bands as you progress through the game. Harmonix is also working hard on producing albums that you will be able to download after the game comes out here early next year.
