Now in a game called "Rock Band," you expect the soundtrack to consist entirely of rock songs right? This was not the case; for example the game shipped with a Beastie Boys song, and as the DLC rolled in, we were treated to music of varying genres.
Speaking of the DLC, some really questionable songs managed to make it to the download store, including music by this fellow right here:
|Why Harmonix, why??|
Another questionable inclusion is a South Park version of Lady Gaga's Poker Face (the original Poker Face is also available for download, and it has no business being in Rock Band either). Truth be told, this song seems even more out of place than the Spongebob music, seeing as it's a non-rock song being covered by Cartman from South Park.
Lastly we come to an out of place and extremely awesome song for Rock Band: Still Alive from Portal. This song was originally released as April Fool's Day DLC, and even though you get some laughs from seeing the in-game singers performing with GLaDOS' voice, you can't help but love this song no matter what game it makes a cameo appearance in.
That wraps up our look at some of the non-rock songs in the Rock Band DLC. Out of curiosity, did you guys make any questionable download decisions in the Rock Band download store?
