6 Pack of Tracks get you Back in the Saddle, Jack

Boston's hometown heroes Aerosmith have a six-pack of tracks hitting Rock Band this coming Tuesday, January 29th. This is the first time the hard-rocking, blues-influenced band has graced the RB platform, and the first time they've been in a game since Revolution X (or, rather the second time, but we'd like to forget the cash-grab attempt of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith).

The track includes greatest hits such as "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" from the '75 album Toys in the Attic, "Back in the Saddle" from Rocks, and a live version of their hit, "Dream On." Rounding out the pack will be two tracks from the bands newest studio album, Music From Another Dimension!, "Legendary Child," and "Lover Alot."

As always, the tracks can be purchased separately at $1.99 a track on PSN and $2 on Wii (or 160 Microsoft points on XBL), or together as part of the "Greatest Dimension Pack" for $9.99, with "Sweet Emotion" and "Dream On (live)" getting Guitar and Bass pro-upgrades for a dollar more.

While I'm glad the track pack is coming out, I would have liked to have seen a wider span of tracks from each era of the band's career, not just the two albums from the 70s. What say you, music fans?
