Illustration for article titled Rock Band Next Week: Rock, Rock, Rock N Roll High School

Along with the live Paul McCartney tracks mentioned previously, The Ramones return to Rock Band next week, with their one song worth any three Blink 182 or two songs from The Psychedelic Furs that might also be showing up.


The three live Paul McCartney tunes Luke mentioned yesterday are joined by The Ramones classic "Rock N ' Roll High School" in the Rock Band Music Store next week, together completely overshadowing the contributions of The Psychedelic Furs and Blink 182.


It was close at least for the Furs. If one more song was included along with "Love My Way" and "Sister Europe" they would have been just about on the same level as the one song from The Ramones, but two tracks just doesn't cut it.

Blink 182, on the other hand, could have dropped their entire catalog onto the store and it wouldn't have made a ripple. "Adam's Song," "First Date," and "I Miss You" never stood a chance.

Check out the full listing of next week's tracks below, with the plus signs indicating that the tunes are valid for LEGO Rock Band as well.

I saw Blink 182 play live (at the Cattle Club in Sacramento; I was there to see Agent Orange, and The Bouncing Souls also played), and I can't remember them making much of an impression. I like the Furs and Ramones songs, though. Does anyone know what makes a song compatible with Lego Rock Band? Does it come down to 'family appropriate' lyrics, or is it a matter of effort?
