Rock Band travels through history and picks out some of the best songs ever. Some of them songs have been packaged together in the form of track packs based on genre and games based on bands. But never before has Rock Band had a game that focused on a specific decade in time. I thought I would make a track listing of what I think the perfect Rock Band game dedicated to only hit songs by hit artists during the 1960s. This is one of 5 Rock Band Decades games. If reviews are good, I will create the other 4 installments in the Rock Band Decades Series. Here is the Rock Band Decades: Hits of the 1960s track listing below.
