The Week in Rock Band DLC: James Brown, Papa Roach, and lots more

Next week’s Rock Band Store update looks like it’s going to shut up anyone whining about the lack of variety. Don’t believe me? Here’s what’s hitting the store next week:

  • Average White Band – “Pick Up the Pieces”
  • Earth Wind & Fire — “Shining Star” 
  • James Brown – “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine – Pt 1”
  • Against Me! – “Thrash Unreal” 
  • The New Pornographers – “All the Things That Go to Make Heaven and Earth”   
  • The New Pornographers- “Use It”
  • Papa Roach – “Last Resort”
  • Papa Roach – “Lifeline”

Yes, it’s so all over the place, it’s absurd. And pretty damned wonderful, if you ask me. Tracks will cost the usual $1.99 (160 MS Points) a piece. Or, you can pick up the three funk tracks (“Pick Up the Pieces,” “Shining Star,” and “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine – Pt 1”), collectively known as the “Get the Funk Out 01” pack for $5.49 (440 MS Points).

Seriously, tell me you’re not at least interesting in something you see here, and I’ll call you crazy. Or weird. There’s a video of Average White Band’s “Pick Up the Pieces” after the jump, since it apparently was accidentally put on the European PlayStation 3 Rock Band store a few weeks ago. Oops!
