Rock Band Music Store (ALL) To Get Billy Squier And A Flock of Seagulls Tracks

by Rainier on Oct. 5, 2012 @ 9:16 a.m. PDT

Featuring an 83-song set list and access to far more music than ever before, as well as innovative new gameplay modes and instruments, Rock Band 3 will change the way fans think about and play music games.

In 1982, English New Wave band A Flock of Seagulls found worldwide success with their self-titled debut record. “I Ran,” a single from that album, became one of the band’s biggest hits, making its way to the Billboard Hot 100 and charts around the globe!

Rocker Billy Squier had a string of hits during the 80s, as well, two of which will make their way to the Rock Band Music Store next week: “The Stroke,” the debut single from 1981’s Don’t Say No and the opening track from 1982’s Emotions in Motion, “Everybody Wants You,” which held on to the top spot of Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock tracks for six weeks straight!

All three tracks will be available as singles on the Rock Band Music Store; a Pro Guitar and Pro Bass Upgrade will be available for “The Stroke.”

Additionally, Rock Band Blitz players who play any of these tracks will earn double coins for each play, as well as double coins for each time they play Billy Squier’s “Christmas Is the Time to Say I Love You,” which was previously released on the Rock Band Music Store!
