Rock band Green Day revealed back in June that it was working on its very own version of Rock Band, and today we can say with absolute certainty: Green Day: Rock Band is coming next year.
“We are thrilled to work with Green Day to revisit key moments from their career, including their likenesses, content and imagery, through our innovative form of musical interaction,” said Harmonix CEO and co-founder Alex Rigopulos in a statement.
The entire track list from the standalone game will also be exportable for play in Rock Band and Rock Band 2 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
But if you’re looking for some more Green Day in your Rock Band to hold you over, the band will also be releasing a new track pack on Dec. 15 that will include three more songs from the band’s acclaimed album, 21st Century Breakdown: "Christian’s Inferno,” “Last of the American Girls,” and “¡Viva La Gloria!”
My first concert ever was a stop on Green Day’s Dookie Tour, and I was a fan even before that, so naturally I’m kind of excited about this news. Although, I’m not too thrilled to be utterly owned by Tre Cool’s drumming, but it’s a price I’m willing to pay.
