Rock Band Soundtrack
“Our goal with the Rock Band soundtrack was to give players the chance to experience an amazing cross section of rock n’ roll from the last four decades - ranging from iconic artists to emerging bands,“ stated Eric Brosius, Audio Lead for Harmonix Music Systems.
“We received an overwhelming response from artists and record labels wanting to be a part of the game which made the final selection process for the Rock Band soundtrack challenging, but extremely exciting. Now that the disc track list is locked and Rock Band is being prepped for manufacture, the team continues to work with all the labels and bands to secure an incredibly robust schedule of music releases for download at launch and beyond that will provide players the opportunity to explore different genres of rock and go deeper into artist catalogs if they choose.”
