Revisit New Wave Glory Days with Rock Band 3

Published on August 24th, 2010 by

Wannabe-rockers have been eagerly awaiting Harmonix’s next entry in the Rock Band franchise all summer. Especially enticing is the inclusion of the Keytar peripheral which opens up the track selection to include a plethora of high-profile new wave snyth tunes from the 1980’s including some of my favorite 80’s classics:

Big Country – “In a Big Country”
The Cure – “Just Like Heaven”
Devo – “Whip It”
Echo & the Bunnymen – “The Killing Moon”
The Smiths – “Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One Before”
Tears for Fears – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Many individual tracks have been leaked and/or released by Harmonix themselves, we haven’t had the full list until now. Below is the full 83 song track list that will ship on the disk come this October. Overall, a solid effort covering all the bases. Did they miss anything?
