360 is the loneliest number

I just want to make sure everybody knows this because all signs point to this being true: Rock Band 2's short exclusive release on the Xbox 360 will not include the Limited Edition bundle with all the instruments. I also am sad about this news but luckily its even closer to my B-day so free RB2 for me. And if your wondering, I still will pick up the stand alone version.

Foreign to Rock Band

Foreigner was caught playing rock band on IGN. Only the singer and bassist actually played but the rhythm guitarist was involved in the interview afterwards. Its worth a peek just to watch the guys from IGN attempt to rock. Also to be noted they did not fail out of the song. Your move Rush...... (I would name the singer and the bassist but nobody reads this yet so.........)

Its an Ozzfest

Well chalk up another famous person to Guitar Hero: World Tour because Ozzy Osbourne has been spotted jumping on the bandwagon. GH:WT will not only have the Ozz but will carry 2 of his songs, "Crazy Train" and "Mr. Crowley," and on top of all that will have OZZfest as a venue. But wait! That's not all, Zakk Wylde will also be a playable character. Wow wee! The only way to make this deal better would be to announce more songs and here they are with the rest of the announced setlist:

Airbourne – "Too Much Too young…"

At the Drive-in – "One Armed Scissor"

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – "Weapon of Choice"

Bob Seger – "Hollywood Nights"

Dinosaur Jr. – "Feel the pain"

Silversun Pickups – "Lazy Eye"

Survivor – "Eye of the Tiger"

Billy Idol – "Rebel Yell"

Blink 182 – "Dammit"

Foo Fighters – "Everlong"

Jimi Hendrix – "Purple Haze Live"

Jimi Hendrix – "Wind Cries Mary"

Linkin Park – "What I've Done"

Paramore – "Misery Business"

Sublime – "Santeria"

The Doors – "Love Me Two times"

The Eagles – "Hotel California"

Van Halen – "Hot for Teacher"
