Given how much metal music Harmonix and MTV Games have poured into Rock Band, it's not too surprising the companies have partnered to deliver a Brutal Legend-themed metal track pack for the game. The "Brutal Legend Pack" contains three songs, including one by none other than Jack Black's comedic outfit Tenacious D.
- Motörhead – “(We Are) The Road Crew ‘08”
- Tenacious D – “The Metal”
- Testament – “More Than Meets the Eye”
I don't normally drop press release quotes, but this one from designer Tim Schafer got me.
“These are three great songs that totally capture the feeling of Brutal Legend. I can’t wait to play them in Rock Band,” said Schafer. “I’ve air-drummed to all of them so many times, I’m sure I’ll be able to beat them on hard mode, no problem. Or at least on medium. Like medium plus. That’s a setting, right?”
It's too bad "The Metal" is one of Tenacious D's worst songs. But like I said, there's plenty of metal available already in Rock Band. More of a (mostly) good thing isn't something to really be complaining about. The track pack drops on October 13.
