This week, we’re adding even more content from legendary Bay Area rockers Third Eye Blind!
Third Eye Blind has garnered tons of critical and commercial success over the span of their career. The band re-recorded multiple hits specifically for music games and we’re bringing some of them to Rock Band 4 this week! Let’s kick it off with “Never Let You Go ‘09”. In early 2000, the original cut was a top 5 track on the Adult Top 40, Mainstream Top 40, AND Alternative Songs charts at the same time. It also spent three weeks atop the Canadian Top Singles chart. The song contains one of many great guitar riffs in Third Eye Blind’s repertoire and should bring back good memories for many of us. You’ll have a great chorus on vocals, along with the spoken outro that was all the rage with fans.
“Semi-Charmed Life ‘09” is a re-recording of one of the most memorable songs of the ‘90s. As the lead single off their debut album, the track performed incredibly well on the charts, reaching #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and claiming #1 on both the Mainstream Top 40 and Modern Rock Charts (the latter of which it topped for the overall year as well). The expected highlights are here, with the iconic guitar line to play and all the ‘doo doo doo’-ing you could want. But don’t forget the rest of the band, bass has some quick runs and even a few chords, while drums have a bunch of short tom fills scattered around.
Songs can be purchased individually for $1.99. The Rock Band Rivals Season 9 Spotlight Pass can be purchased for $14.99.
* Please note that this week’s DLC tracks will be available for purchase on Thursday, December 20th. Due to holiday closures, players can also pick up DLC from Andrew W.K. and Barns Courtney on Thursday, December 20th!
