R.E.M. And T-Rex Coming To Rock Band

Rock Band 2

Next week, older music gamers are in luck: Proto-college rock innovators R.E.M. and glam-rock superstars T-Rex both have tracks coming to the Rock Band Network. The R.E.M. tracks demonstrate the awesome taste of MTV Games when it comes to Rock Band track selection. Rather than focus entirely on the band's hits, the selections also draw from older, less well-known R.E.M. with the inclusion of "Driver 8" and "Radio Free Europe." How the game will deal with the mumbled lyrics on older R.E.M. remains to be seen. 

Anyway, here's the track list:

  • R.E.M. – “Driver 8”
  • R.E.M. – “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)”
  • R.E.M. – “Living Well Is the Best Revenge”
  • R.E.M. – “Radio Free Europe”
  • R.E.M. – “Stand”
  • R.E.M. – “Superman”
  • R.E.M. – “These Days”
  • R.E.M. – “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?”
  • T. Rex – “Children of the Revolution”
  • T. Rex – “Cosmic Dancer”
  • T. Rex – “Jeepster”

These will be available on October 5 for the PS3, Wii and 360.

What do you think? Any old "college-radio" fans out there?
