Keep your grandma's hands off the PS3, everybody. Next week's Rock Band DLC is going to have the old goat grabbing for a plastic controller to rock the hell out like they used to back in the days.

Here's the lineup:

But that's not all. According Billboard magazine, Canadian 80s metal cult favorite Anvil is coming to Rock Band as well. The band, subject of killer documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil said they are re-recording three of their classic tracks: "Metal on Metal," "666" and "Thumb Hang" by the Anvil pre-cursor Lips.
No word on when those Anvil tracks will be available for download, but Styx and company will be available Tuesday for the 360 and Thursday for the PS3. The tracks are $1.99 each. The full Styx and REO collection will cost $10.99 (880 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360). The “Hautewerk Pack 01" will cost $5.49 (440 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360).
