  • RB: DLC 02/07/10 – The Who’s 2010 Superbowl S-Mashup

    Posted on February 8th, 2010 Simon 3 comments

    This year’s NFL Superbowl halftime show was a rock’n’roll medley by legendary rock icons “The Who” called the Superbowl S-Mashup.  The medley features five of their greatest all time hits arranged together to form a seamless song.  The majority of these songs are already available as master tracks or DLC in the game, which should be no surprise, as The Who are one of the game’s main acts with 19 tracks available to play.  The songs in the S-Mashup are, in order:

    • Pinball Wizard (Rock Band 2)
    • Baba O’Riley (DLC)
    • Who Are You ? (DLC)
    • See Me, Feel Me  (New)
    • Won’t Get Fooled Again  (Rock Band 1)

    The song is rated as a 5 star difficulty (bass and drums and vocals).  Here is a preview of the medley in two parts.  The song is a mere 160 points, but if you’re like me, you already own the master tracks and would rather play those all the way through.

    • Let me start by saying, we need more mashups in Rock Band. I’m thinking the likes of Linkin Park/Jay-Z, Aerosmith/Run-D.M.C., or anything from the Judgment Night soundtrack. I would be in heaven with that stuff.

      As far as The Who mashup, I watched the halftime show. For me, I have always liked and appreciated The Who, but have never been passionate about them. Just like you, I bought the big The Who DLC pack from over a year ago…and I never play it. It’s not fun/compelling for me. Though, for only 160 MS points, I could see me picking up this mashup. 14 minutes of 5 mashed songs, sounds like a blast. But, I’m just not that enamored with The Who and expect that the track will become “shelfware” along with the 1600 MS points I spent on the original DLC pack.

    • Judgement Night! Now you’re talking a fusion of hip-hop and grunge metal, of which I whole-heartedly APPROVE! That would make quite the full-album DLC but I imagine that securing the rights to all those artists would be ten times harder. In particular I want to play the Helmet/House of Pain song “Just Another Victim”.

      As for the Who, I agree, those tracks don’t get the playtime they deserve. The song that I really enjoy to sing is “Eminence Front”.

    • Just Another Victim, easily makes it in my top songs of the 90’s.
