DLC Week of 6/16: Harry Chapin and Mammoth WVH

“Family Reunion”

We here at Rock Band HQ consider ourselves family and the Week 3 party challenge theme is one close to our hearts. Get your kin together this week for the Rivals Challenge: Family Reunion. We’re tugging on some nostalgic heartstrings, conjuring memories of those summer potlucks at the park where you’d catch up with loved ones, learn more about your family tree, and inevitably get embarrassed by at least one distant relative. Our new DLC this week, Harry Chapin “Cat’s In The Cradle” & Mammoth WVH “Distance”, is the icing on the cake.

Harry Chapin’s poignant chart-topper “Cat’s In The Cradle” tells the story of a father & son as their cyclical relationship evolves over the years. The song peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance at the 1975 Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2011. While “Cat’s In The Cradle” would go on to become Chapin’s most recognizable song, it was his philanthropic work that would truly be his legacy. Chapin was a key figure in helping to establish the Presidential Commission on World Hunger. His humanitarian efforts to end global starvation inspired numerous fundraisers and charity events that have continued to this day. Intricate guitar work and the famous narrative make “Cat’s In The Cradle” a truly memorable experience to play.

Under the moniker Mammoth WVH, Wolfgang Van Halen’s debut single, “Distance”, was released in November 2020 as a tribute to his father. “Distance” was enthusiastically received by fans and followers, eventually rose to #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, and garnered a nomination for Best Rock Song for the 64th annual Grammy Awards. Mammoth WVH released their self-titled debut last year to great acclaim, with many admiring the technical skill of the gifted musician. All of the instruments on “Distance”  were performed by Wolfgang Van Halen.  Players will have fun matching the skillful guitar solos, plentiful drum fills and impassioned vocals.

Both of these awesome tracks are included in the Season 27 Season Pass. Pick it up today and save big on the entire season of DLC.

Harry Chapin “Cat’s In The Cradle” and Mammoth WVH “Distance” are available for $1.99 each.
