Gameplay Notes
Starting off our Rewind tracks for the month, “Round and Round” by Ratt comes to Rock Band as DLC for the first time. This 1984 hit from the 3x platinum selling album Out of the Cellar rose to #12 on the Hot 100 charts and would become the band’s signature song. Those who love belting it out on vocals will love singing this track in-game – both melody and harmony lines will have plenty to do, and we bet you can’t keep your head from banging during this tune. With what our Audio QA team calls a “rippin’ solo” on guitar added to the mix, “Round and Round” is a well-rounded pick for your Music Library.

“I Wanna Rock” by Twisted Sister makes its Rock Band debut this week. Featuring a memorable Animal House-inspired music video, “I Wanna Rock” placed #17 on VH1’s Greatest Hard Rock Songs of All-Time. This tune is perfect for beginner rock vocalists, getting harmony singers together for the energy-inspired “ROCK” in each and every chorus. Drummers should take heed to the fair amount of kicks throughout the song. A galloping bass chart will keep this spirited rock hit moving right along through the end.
