In this week’s Thursday Throwback, we’re going to examine a 1982 release from the American band Stray Cats. Though the track is pretty recognizable, it may have slipped under the radar of some players, since it was credited in-game to the band’s guitarist Brian Setzer as a solo artist. The album that originally featured this tune was the band’s first taste of success in the US, and also contained “Rock This Town”- another hit that was recently released as DLC for Rock Band 4. Let’s take a closer look at an old favorite: “Stray Cat Strut.”
This week is a mixed bag featuring a metal ballad from Rock Band favourites Disturbed and a jumpy indie pop song from the debuting Fitz and the Tantrums! Be sure to take a look at these full band playthrough videos courtesy of the totally awesome Spectro’s Rock Hero! Definitely check out and subscribe to their YouTube channel!
Links to purchase DLC songs online at Xbox.com and Playstation.com are included below for each track. All tracks are $1.99.
Well, it’s the last week of the month and we’ve already had the mystery artist show up so unless there’s a huge surprise left, it’s going to be the Disturbed and Fitz combo. Now, as for what songs? Well, keep reading and you’ll see!
- Disturbed – The Sound of Silence
- Fitz & the Tantrums – HandClap
All songs are $1.99.
It appears as though, similar to the Rock Band situation, select Dance Central DLC is going to start being de-listed. The first bit of content to go is the export from the first Dance Central title.
You’ll only have until October 25th to redeem your export from the game, and at only $5 it’s an absolute steal for all the content you get (32 songs to be exact). All the tracks can be exported in to Dance Central 2 and Dance Central 3, however the export pack was never available for Dance Central: Spotlight, so if you’re exclusively current gen, then you’re most likely out of luck.
As always, if you already own this content, nothing will change for you in the future.
After the jump is the complete list of songs available in the Dance Central 1 export.
Hello everyone! We here at RockBandAide are relaunching an old weekly feature that we call the Thursday Throwback, which is where we examine some classic or underappreciated older tracks from the Rock Band library every Thursday. To start us off with this feature and my first post on this site, I figured that we could celebrate this week’s amazing pack Ozzfest Meets Knotfest with an Ozzy Osbourne hit from the first Ozzy pack: “No More Tears.”
This week we have a totally intense week of nothing but metal to promote the upcoming Ozzfest and Knotfest shows! Be sure to take a look at these full band playthrough videos courtesy of the totally awesome Spectro’s Rock Hero! Definitely check out and subscribe to their YouTube channel!
Below are playthrough videos of each of this week’s new songs.
