  • RB: DLC 12/15/09 – Green Day Pack 02

    Posted on December 8th, 2009 Simon 3 comments

    Late last week, Harmonix also let slip that on 12/15 they will be releasing the second Green Day pack for Rock Band.  The songs included are:

    • Green Day – “Christian’s Inferno”
    • Green Day – “Last of the American Girls”
    • Green Day – “¡Viva La Gloria!”

    Some of you will recognize that these tracks are all from their last album, “21st Century Breakdown” which was rated very highly by Shawn.

    I really enjoyed the last three songs from Green Day 01, but I’m still wondering whatever happened to the rumors about having their own title?  Remember this little tidbit from an article on 1Up:

    When a fan asked the band if they’d considered releasing tracks for Rock Band during yesterday’s Breakfast with Green Day on KROQ, vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong offered a surprisingly candid, “Yeah. We’re doing a whole Green Day Rock Band, uh,” before being cut off by the approving howls of the surrounding crowd.

    There is more evidence – if we look back even further to May 17 when “RB Unplugged” was leaked, we have the following quote from Destructoid:

    Now, the same people who simply couldn’t help themselves from getting all grabby-grabby on the unauthorized software have dug deep into the game’s files, finding a slew hints at Green Day songs…   …the files appear to make references to the following Green Day tracks: “Welcome to Paradise,” “She’s a Rebel,” “Nice Guys Finish Last,” “Longview,” “Minority,” “Letterbomb,” “American Idiot,” “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “Jaded,” “Whatsername,” “Walking Contradiction,” “She,” “St. Jimmy,” “Holiday,” “Hitchin’ a Ride,” and “Brain Stew.”

    It’s a shame that they have not made a formal announcement, because the band easily has enough material to warrant a release similar to the AC/DC Live disc from last year.  Would the band be satisfied with a game addon like that one?  Hard to say, especially after witnessing the glory that is The Beatles: Rock Band (or the misery that is Guitar Hero: Van Halen).  I’m certain we haven’t seen the last of this group in Rock Band.

    One final question.. if the game developers and testers have produced those Green Day songs into playable tracks, even if only for their own amusement, how jealous are you right now?
