Bob Marley Coming To Rock Band 3?


Posted September 14, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson

Rock Band 3 Release Date, Pre-order Deals Announced

It seriously looks like most of the tracks from Bob Marley's Legend: The Best of Bob Marley and the Wailers  will be available via the Rock Band Store on September 21. It's sort of not confirmed, as no official announcement has been made by MTV Games, but here's the track list:

  • Is This Love?
  • No Woman, No Cry
  • Could You Be Loved
  • Three Little Birds
  • Buffalo Soldier
  • Get Up, Stand Up (also on disc for RB3)
  • Stir It Up
  • One Love/People Get Ready
  • I Shot the Sheriff
  • Waiting in Vain
  • Redemption Song
  • Satisfy My Soul
  • Exodus

The story of why it's not confirmed is awesome. Click the cut for the info.

Here's the deal: No "official" announcement has been made by MTV Harmonix, but there are commercials running on VH1 Classic that hype the Marley releases and list the songs. Commercial or not, it's not official!

Here's a statement from Harmonix on the matter:

"As of right now this DLC release is TOTALLY UNCONFIRMED. I mean, it'd be awesome if we could release all of this landmark album from a hugely influential artist, but we HAVEN'T ANNOUNCED ANYTHING YET. As usual, it's not 100% CONFIRMED until we post the DLC announcement at 10am on Friday morning… or until our parent company starts running commercial promos for it."

I love Harmonix. We ran all this information through G4's Super-Rumor-Computer 5000 and we got a rare "There is a 100 percent chance this is true!" result.

I'm not a huge fan of reggae. I get the appeal, and respect Marley, but there's something static and repetitive about the form of music so I don't dig it. Weirdly, I love old school, 1960s ska, though. What about you, do you like to lively up yourself with reggae? Are you going to download these tracks?
