Harmonix remains faithful to its promise today with another weekly dose of Rock Band DLC, this time offering up the “Punk Pack,” with three new songs to pierce your nose to. Included in the set are:
The Clash: “I Fought the Law“
The Ramones: “Rockaway Beach“
(not) The Buzzcocks: “Ever Fallen in Love” (It’s a cover version.)
Not that the Buzzcocks’ song being a cover makes any difference since, you know, you’ll be singing it. Each track is 160 MS points on its own, or you can download the authority-defying Punk Pack in its entirety for 440 points. Allow me to recommend The Clash’s “I Fought the Law,” as it’s got that weird drum part in the middle that your friends will inevitably screw up, affording you a golden opportunity to point at them and laugh.
While it’s nice to see a little more (finger quotes) “Punk Rock” in the roster, I’m still foolishly hoping the good people at Harmonix will venture outside the realm of the standard-issue, available at Target, mainstream idea of what that means at some point. Is it too much to ask for a Descendents song or two? Chop chop.
