This is the first time either band has been involved with the game, although the third time Jack White has been involved, as his side projects The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather has been in the game for a while.
White Stripes songs include Icky Thump, Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground and Girl You Have No Faith in Medicine. Kasabian’s involvement sees them use Club Foot from their self-titled debut album.
The Damned will also be involved with “Smash it Up”.
The DLC is out on Tuesday for XBLMP and Rock Band Shop for the Wii, and on Thursday for the PS3. PR after the break.

MCV are reporting that Sony have tied a deal with EA to release a SingStar game based on the songs of 60’s band The Beatles.
The game is set to launch in September this year along side the The Beatles: Rock Band game from EA, and it will be an instrument-free port of the game to a degree.
The Beatles will be the fourth band to have their own dedicated SingStar game following in the steps of ABBA, Queen and Take That.
EA’s announced that Kings of Leon will be making their way to Rock Band for the first time with three songs from the band coming to the game.
Them three being Molly’s Chambers, Crawl and Sex on Fire. The songs are out on Tuesday for Xbox Live Marketplace and next Thursday for PlayStation Store. Also coming to Rock Band are Rancid for PS3 and 360, with Jethro Tull, No Doubt and Judas Priest coming to the Wii version.
PR is after the jump. Oh, and because we feel genorious, we’ve added in info for some songs for Rock Band: Unplugged for the PSP.
Harmonix and MTV Games have formally announced that Green Day will be coming to Rock Band through several exclusive track packs. The first will consist of 3 songs taken from their newest album, 21st Century Breakdown. The songs are as following:
- 21 Guns
- Know Your Enemy
- East Jesus Nowhere
It was earlier in the week hinted at by Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong. The track pack will release on July 7th on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store. Full press release is after the jump. Continue reading
As if The Beatles werent big enough for the series, Billy Joe Armstrong, the leadman of Green Day has hinted that they will be the next band for their own edition of Rock Band, according to Kotaku. They will be only the second band after the Fab Four to get their own addition of the series (3rd if you count AC/DC’s live disc only addition). Which begs the question as to how the three piece, who only released a brand new album recently, got this far without one song appearing on the Rock Band store? Armstrong said:
Uh yeah, we’re doing a whole Green Day Rock Band…uh. I’m not sure…soon. Like I think not this week, but this year soon…by the end of this year.
Obviously not this week, Billy. Which now leads us to another question: HOW THE FUCK HAVE HARMONIX NOT RELEASED A RADIOHEAD: ROCK BAND???
