Rock Band 4 DLC - October 4th

This week, the Rock Band Music Library will see tracks from Harvey Danger and Jane’s Addiction.

A classic ‘90s track comes to the Rock Band Music Library this week as well – “Flagpole Sitta” by Harvey Danger. Folks at Harmonix are psyched to finally have this track added in the Music Library. “Flagpole Sitta” is a fantastic song on drums with plenty of fills and cymbal swells. Additionally, this tracks makes for an excellent party starter, especially with crowd vocals and harmonies.

“Stop” by Jane’s Addiction makes its way to the Rock Band Music Store this week. Every instrument’s chart is fun, interesting, and different. There are plenty of active parts in the drum patterns and guitar passages. Vocalists and bassists will also have a great time ripping through this track – this DLC makes an excellent addition to any band’s repertoire. Don’t be fooled by that breakdown in the middle of the track – keep the energy high and blast through that guitar solo towards the end of the song!

Each track can be purchased individually for $1.99.

  • Harvey Danger – “Flagpole Sitta”
  • Jane’s Addiction – “Stop”

We’ll be showing off this week’s newest DLC on our Twitch stream today, plus a deep dive into Rivals Mode, starting at 5pm ET. Tune in here!
