The Beatles: Rock Band Getting Never Before Heard/Released Songs

89_the_beatles09/09/09 is when The Beatles: Rock Band will grace our homes, and hurt and wallets, but we can’t wait for that to happen. Recently announced by Dhani Harrison on Billboard, son of Beatles guitarist George Harrison, that in addition to the many great hits that will be in the game, never before heard/released songs will be featured. No word yet as to what those songs will be.

The game will comprise of 45 songs in total. The standalone software will cost $60, software with individual guitars will be $100, and the limited edition, which is assumed to have every instrument, will cost $250. A setlist has not yet been released but Harmonix will be able to choose songs from Please Please Me (1963) to Abbey Road (1969).

  1. I’m reticent to get behind this. Isn’t the allure of Rock Band to sing songs that everyone knows and loves so that, like the drunk middle-aged soccer mom shrieking Ebony and Ivory into the microphone at karaoke night, we can pretend for one small minute we’re famous? So songs we’ve never heard will cut down on that illusion a wee bit. Buuuuuuuuuuuuut i’ll probably play it anyway.
