Nickelback Make Their 'Rock Band' Debut

Nickelback are offering up six songs to debut this week to be downloaded.

0
There are more than 1,500 songs available to download on "Rock Band" to add to your playing arsenal, which is why it's rather surprising that one of the biggest selling acts of this decade (11th if you're keeping score) is just now jumping onto the landmark game's platform. Maybe it's the lack of tattoos and limited piercings that made the Canadian hard rockers have to wait. Nickelback are offering up six songs to debut this week to be downloaded as "Nickelback Pack 01." Included are "Burn It to the Ground" and "This Afternoon" from the 2008 released "Dark Horse." Other songs included are "Photograph" and "Rockstar" from the chart conquering "All the Right Reasons." Classic cuts "Figured You Out" and "Never Again" are also ready to rock out to. All the tracks are from their master recording, which means turn it up. Thanks for the report to Noisecreep.com.

    GOD DAMN IT UG!!! Playing Rock Band does not mean you are "making music" and Nickelback, well, they don't exactly make music either. :-P Its like a cyborg was sent back in time from the future and took samples of Bryan Adams DNA during the "Summer of 69". Later, that same robotic hive mind that took those DNA samples sent back 4 Bryan Adams clones....who we now know as Nickelback.

    I am going to do this as well but I am going to go the extra mile and spread my legs as far apart as I can for maximum rocking out,Kruger style.

    Rockband are a good think. It gets kids into rock instead of pop/rap and it kinda fun. As for Nickelback, he sucs pretty horribly.

    I'm not a Nickelback fan but I can think of loads of music out there that is worse. I think some people are scared to say they like them like it makes them less of a man for saying so LOL

    They're probably going to be disappointed with how much their songs are downloaded...anyone who plays Rock Band and goes to the trouble of buying new songs for it will be aware that there are hundreds of better songs to waste your time and money on... like all of Rust in Peace. And we all know Rock Band has nothing to do with making real music... doesn't mean it's not fun or worthwhile. And it does NOT take the place of real instruments for musicians. I play at most 4 hours of Rock Band/Guitar Hero a week... and at LEAST 4 hours of real guitar a DAY. Hating video games never made someone like you more.

    category: general music news seems to belong there if you ask me.
    Maybe it's the lack of skill and talent that made this boyband have to wait.
    fixed.

    I'm very surprised when I read this... THEY HAVEN'T BEEN MILKED AND MADE INTO A FULL GAME YET?

    I personally love Nickelback, although I won't buy this. I'd rather save my money and play them on a guitar, haha.
