The songs included in the "Essentials 01" track pack include some of the band's most famous songs across the decades, spanning from 1983's "Sunday Bloody Sunday" to 2014's "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)"

U2 "Essentials 01":

  • "Sunday Bloody Sunday"
  • "Pride (In The Name Of Love)"
  • "Where The Streets Have No Name"
  • "Desire"
  • "One"
  • "Vertigo"
  • "California (There Is No End To Love)"
  • "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)"

The songs are available individually for $2 each or altogether for $13.49. The track pack's "Essentials 01" naming convention suggests even more songs are coming later, which is no small surprise, given U2 is one of the biggest bands on the planet whose discography is huge.

Rock Band 4's base soundtrack already includes the U2 songs "I Will Follow" and "Cedarwood Road." Rock Band 4 is the first game in the music series to feature any music from the group.
