The first 45 songs for Rock Band revealed

We finally have confirmation of all the songs that will be available for Rock Band once it’s released November 20th. Well, the initial first 45 tracks — there’s still 12 locked tracks that haven’t been revealed yet. EA sure knows how to tease us, don’t they?

Downloadable songs will also be released each week after the release of the game. One thing that Rock Band easily has over Guitar Hero is that they’re getting entire albums of songs. Granted, I don’t know anyone who would like to play the entire Who’s album, “Who’s Next” or 18 tracks by the Grateful Dead.

Of the playable songs, the only one I’m really interested in playing is Beastie Boys “Sabotage”. And by play, I mean have a seizure and hope for the best. Hit the jump for the list of songs.
