Rock Band: Songs for the drummers

Five stand-out tracks drummers should be crying out for

Nov 30, 2007

Burn your Les Paul and throw away your Stratocaster, because drumming is the new guitar playing. If playing Rock Band hastaught us anything, it's that the most satisfying instrument to play in a (virtual) bandhas to bethe drums.

So, with this in mind, we’ve racked our brains and scoured the internet to find five tracks that should keep the drummer happy, for a while at least. We’re hoping for a downloadable content pack put together with drummers in mind and once Harmonix hears about these gems we expect, no, insist on, at least one of these tunes being included on the tracklist. Just don’t try to play them on expert.

Phil Collins – In The Air Tonight

This track recently shot back into the UK charts, after a certain chocolate company used it to accompany a monkey bashing away on the skins,in acommercial for UK TV. The drums don’t really kick in until about 3 minutes into the song, but it would still be great to play along to.
