  • Franz Liszt – Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
  • The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Fire
  • Lady Gaga – Applause

Excited? What song’s do you guys want to see?

UPDATE: @JenKronfeld pointed out to us that the songs are listed on Best Buy’s website. The artist list has been updated to show the songs!

Imagine Dragons coming to Fantasia? (UPDATE)


It’s been a while since we’ve had a new song revealed for Fantasia: Music Evolved, but it looks like we might know what’s coming next! A week or so ago, @GrumbleVolcano6 noticed that someone had listed Imagine Dragons’ mega hit Radioactive to the game’s Wikipedia page.

Now, information being added to a Wikipedia page without any sort of announcement is nothing new, but that addition became very interesting coupled with the latest Spotify playlist that was released. Fellow RBA author @CraigAMunn noticed something interesting.

Seeing as this is an official resource, it’s very interesting to see an unannounced song show up. Could this lead to this song being revealed at PAX Prime in a few weeks? Let us know what you think in the comments!

UPDATE: Well, looks like it’s official!
