Due out in July Stateside on PS2, Rock the 80s is now known to include stuff from the likes of Iron Maiden and Oingo Boingo. Right.

The official reveal identifies the various tracks listed at the bottom of this item, but a separate note - posted on The PRP - picks up on a couple of others mentioned on the back of a pre-order box.
