Let's go space truckin'! When Deep Purple's song of the same name hits Rock Band next week, that is. That high powered classic rock jam is part of next week's DLC melange, an odd assortment.

Jethro Tull, Snow Patrol and James Gang join Deep Purple to ring in the new year, Rock Band style. Beginning December 30 — PlayStation 3 owners will have to wait patiently until January 8 to get these tracks — the following downloadable tracks will be available for Rock Band and Rock Band 2.

• Snow Patrol “Take Back the City”
• Deep Purple “Space Truckin’”
• James Gang “Funk #49”
• Jethro Tull “Hymn 43”

Tracks are $1.99 (or 160 Microsoft Points) each and are, of course, masters.
