If We Pretend That We’re Rockstars

I never really got into the whole Rockband video game thing probably just because the plastic instruments looked a little Fisher Price, but I would always grab the mic when at a certain friend’s house. None of the songs I heard (other than Faith No More’s “Epic”) were ever ones I could really get into though, until now. That’s right, the Rockband 2 song list has been dropped and some of the tracks have got me ready to wail again.

Highlights are L7’s “Pretend That We’re Dead,” SY’s “Teenage Riot,” the Beastie’s “So Whatcha Want,” Idol’s “White Wedding” and Alice in Chains’ “Man in the Box.”
