This week, we’ve got an awesome themed pack for New Year’s Eve coming to Rock Band. It’s the perfect setlist to lead into midnight, so you and your friends can get together and ring in 2017 with three brand-new songs on the Rock Band platform.
First is Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”. This was the first dance/electronic song to spend over a year on the Billboard Hot 100, which helped propel it to becoming the first dance/electronic song to sell over 4,000,000 units! For Rock Band, the vocals are challenging, featuring lots of runs. The guitar also bounces between an acoustic and a synth line; you know the one.
The timeless “Celebration” from Kool & The Gang will keep your New Year’s Eve party going well into 2017 . Not only is it the band’s first #1 hit – it’s a staple at everything from sporting events to wedding ceremonies. The guitar chart is varied, jumping between guitar, piano, and even horns. The solo vocals chart spans four octaves, with jumps large enough to trip anyone up.
When the clock strikes midnight it’s time to fire up “Party Rock Anthem”, by LMFAO ft. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock. Going to #1 in over a dozen countries (including six weeks at #1 in the U.S.), “Party Rock Anthem” is currently #5 on the Greatest Hot 100 Singles of All Time chart. The guitar and bass strumming patterns subtly change during the song, so you’ll have to stay focused to get that Full Combo. The drums are a standout part, offering more of a challenge than you may expect.
“New Years Eve 2016 Pack” will be available for $5.49. Each track can be purchased individually for $1.99 each.
*Please note that DLC tracks will be available for purchase on Friday, December 23rd for Sony Europe and Thursday, December 29th for Xbox One and Sony America.
