Spinal Tap Heads To Rock Band... With The Wrong Songs


Posted June 12, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Spinal Tap

Famous fake rock band Spinal Tap is heading to famous fake rock music games Rock Band and Rock Band 2. But if you're excited at the prospect of busting out "Big Bottom," "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You, Tonight" or "Stonehenge,"  you're going to be disappointed: All the Spinal Tap DLC is from the band's new album, Back from the Dead... and they're full price.

I'm tempted to yell "Rip-off! Who cares about new Spinal Tap? We want the REAL Tap! This is like adding Steppenwolf tracks and not including "Magic Carpet Ride" or "Born to be Wild"." But then I remember that I don't have to buy the tracks, nor do I ever have to play them. I can only hope these four tracks from the fake band are an appetizer for a release of the entire This is Spinal Tap soundtrack.

Oh, also, a three songs set from Evanescence are on the way. I haven't heard this band, but G4tv.com's Mike D'alonzo has strong feelings about Evanescence. He says:

"Evanescence is like really watered-down Linkin Park, with the slightest tinge of Siouxie and the Banshees, fronted by a woman singing the worst lyrics you've ever heard in your life. It sounds like what a 14 year-old girl would write on the back of a notebook. The lyrics are Metallica-bad."

Click the cut for the entire track list.


          Evanescence                     “Bring Me to Life”
          Evanescence                     “Call Me When You’re Sober”
          Evanescence                     “Weight of the World”
          Spinal Tap                         “Back from the Dead”
          Spinal Tap                         “Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare”
          Spinal Tap                         “Saucy Jack”
          Spinal Tap                         “Warmer Than Hell”

The tracks are available Tuesday for the 360 and Thursday for the PS3 at the usual prices.
