GDC 09: 'Don't Stop Believing' in Rock Band (Update)

Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" is in Rock Band? How do I know? I know that Harmonix people took the stage here at a after hours party at GDC and started rocking the 1980's hit song live. So it's in there somewhere. Take that as you will.

The Harmonix folks built it up pretty big here at this party. The bar went nuts when the news came out. And who wouldn't go nuts? Isn't it the quintessential power ballad?

Unfortunately that's all we know. There's no price or release date at all. Our own Nick Chester notes that Randy Jackson and American Idol were mentioned in the loading trivia screen. Our own Dale North notes that this song is cheesy and played out. 

[Update: We've added video of the event after the jump. Feel free to sing along. Also, Dale North is wrong. - Nick]

Just a small town girl, livin in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south detroit
He took the midnight train goin anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill,
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin anything to roll the dice,
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

(chorus)

Dont stop believin
Hold on to the feelin
Streetlight people
