Rock Band Next Week: HIM? Marilyn Manson? Call The Police!

Illustration for article titled Rock Band Next Week: HIM? Marilyn Manson? Call The Police!

Finnish rockers HIM make their Rock Band debut this week, Marilyn Manson hosts "The Dope Show", KSM gets "Distracted", One Night Only gets redundant, and The Police go "Walking on the Moon."


Next week's major addition to the Rock Band music store is a three pack of music from Finnish band HIM, with "Wings of a Butterfly," "Heartkiller" and "Ode to Solitude" sure to please fans of the band that's so important it has to be in all-caps.

The rest of next week is taken up by singles, but pretty good singles. The Police's "Walking on the Moon" is always nice, and Marilyn Manson's "The Dope Show" is one of the more tolerable Manson tunes.

Can't say I've heard of One Night Only, or their redundant song "Just for Tonight," but I'm sure there's someone out there who'll really enjoy it.

KMS' "Distracted" rounds out next week's offerings, another song I have absolutely no opinion about.

To summarize:

Available on Xbox 360 and Wii (Feb. 23) and PlayStation 3 system (Feb. 25):

HIM – "Heartkiller" +
HIM – "Ode to Solitude"
HIM – "Wings of a Butterfly"
KSM – "Distracted" +
Marilyn Manson – "The Dope Show"
One Night Only – "Just For Tonight" +
The Police – "Walking On the Moon" +



I don't care for HiM's music at all, but I thought the name was actually pretty okay for what they were.

Then I found out it stood for His Infernal Majesty. I'm sorry, that's just awful and silly.
