  • Are You Ready for Rock Band 2?

    Posted on September 8th, 2008 Shawn No comments

    UPDATE: Don’t forget, you can get all your RB2 goodness at our hosted Rock Band Radio LIVE! station.

    This morning I took a few minutes to peruse my MP3 library and determine how many of the upcoming 84 tracks on Rock Band 2 (RB2) I already own.  Well, I have 33 of them (including We Got The Beat).  More than 1/3 of all the songs on the RB2 disc, not bad.  Also, 9 of the RB2 songs are rare songs (i.e. bonus songs) that most people are likely to have never heard.  Remove those rarities and I have 44% of the on-disc tracks.

    I’m pretty well decently prepared to get my drumming and singing on.  Knowing me, I will probably purchase the MP3’s for all the songs (just because I like to have my music when I’m on the go).

    So, take a look at your CD’s, MP3’s, or cassette tapes (if you still roll that way).  How many tracks from the Rock Band 2 disc do you already own?  Will you be doing any MP3 buying in up-coming weeks, so you can have your RB2 library on the go?  (List of RB2 tracks after the jump).
