Rock Band has secured one band away from Guitar Hero: Green Day. The punk band accidentally spilled the beans on their collaboration with Harmonix and MTV Games earlier this week, while the public relations departments scrambled to get the official announcement in order. Today, it's real: Green Day is exclusively coming to Rock Band in the form of downloadable content and unannounced "projects."
First up, a selection of three tracks -- "21 Guns," "Know Your Enemy," "East Jesus Nowhere" -- from their latest album, 21st Century Breakdown, will arrive as downloadable content.
That's not the end of Green Day in Rock Band, though, with all parties involved teasing that "additional songs" and other "projects" will be announced "at a later date."
Between The Beatles: Rock Band, their upcoming live-centric project with Pearl Jam and today's deal with Green Day, are we starting to see Rock Band adopting the same philosophy Activision Blizzard has with producing band releases for Guitar Hero?
