EA nails down Rock Band Unplugged set list
Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and System of a Down confirmed on disc; first DLC details emerge too.
Since the announcement of Rock Band Unplugged for the PSP, patient rockers have been wondering what tracks would be making it to the game, with only nine of the 40 promised tracks having been unveiled.
Today EA has let loose the full tracklist for the game, consisting of 41 tracks, which span five decades of music, from the 1960s to the present day, though many have been featured in other Rock Band titles on disk or via DLC. Highlights include modern tracks from pop rockers Jimmy Eat World with "The Middle," from indie kids The Killers with "Mr Brightside," and from metal monsters System of a Down with "Chop Suey." Older hits come from legends such as Motorhead with "Ace of Spades," Pearl Jam with "Alive," and stage wreckers The Who with "Pinball Wizard."
EA has also revealed the initial 10 tracks available on the PSP's first in-game download store, which includes Oasis with "Wonderwall," Muse with "Hysteria," and Lynyrd Skynyrd with "Gimme Three Steps." Pricing for the PSP download store was not confirmed, however.
Rock Band Unplugged lets players take direct control of guitar, bass, drums, and vocals by pressing the PSP buttons in sync with the now-familiar scrolling fret board. Unplugged will also let players switch between instruments on the fly, gliding from guitar to drums at the push of a button. There will also be several game modes, including World Tour, Band Survival, and Warm Up, as well as a character creator.
The game is set to launch June 9 in the US and June 19 in the UK. Interested parties can check out the full tracklist below, as well as our latest hands-on with the game here.
