Pac-Man Fever Hits Rock Band Network Today


Posted June 24, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson

I realize that no one plays Rock Band anymore, and that the novelty song "Pac-Man Fever" was released before many of you were born, but don't let those facts dissuade you from downloading and playing the hell out of this ridiculous "classic" from the old-school arcade days. That's right, "Pac-Man Fever" is finally available for download on the Rock Band Network.

Believe it or not, there was a time when Buckner and Garcia's "Pac-Man Fever" was a hit song. Like, an honest hit. People went out to stores and bought this record (I realize records don't exist anymore, and that "stores" barely exist either). Your fathers and mothers requested "Pac-Man Fever" on radio stations (I realize radio stations barely exist anymore).  Now is your chance to relive those bygone days, and revel in that odd pop culture phenomena of something being so utterly crappy it emerges on the other side as awesome, somehow.

If you want to get really, really ironic, there are three other tracks from the Pac-Man Fever album available on the Rock Band Network too -- "Froggy's Lament," "Mousetrap," and "Hyperspace." The rest of the album is apparently on the way, so you'll be able to really bring the party when you bust out "Ode to a Centipede" and "Goin' Berzerk."

"Pac-Man Fever." Download it now!
