Two artists have their second DLC songs releasing this week, with another Skid Row track and a Rewind from Whitesnake coming to Rock Band soon!
What better song to release as a follow-up to December’s “18 and Life” DLC release than the follow-up single, “I Remember You”? The hit power ballad from Skid Row, it became a top 10 hit for the band in the transition to the ‘90s. Bass and drums hold down the rhythm as you may expect from a ballad, but there’s still nuance to be found in each part. There’s plenty of active parts on guitar, including a tough solo near the end of the song. Vocals are…well, Sebastian Bach doing a ballad. They’re pretty tough to get down, even outranking the guitar difficulty.
Whitesnake previously made an appearance on the Rock Band 3 disc with “Here I Go Again” and now anyone can pick it up with this Rewind release! Topping the Billboard Hot 100 in the fall of 1987, “Here I Go Again” joined several other huge singles to push Whitesnake’s self-titled album to 8x platinum status in America. A slow intro builds toward the full band coming in, with an excellent guitar riff taking lead in the song. A well-known chorus is great for vocalists, which only steps back for the guitar solo later in the song.
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99 each. The Rock Band Rivals Season 4 Spotlight Pass Plus can be purchased for $15.99.
* Please note that this week’s DLC tracks will be available for purchase on Thursday, January 11th.
