Pat Benatar, Pretenders, Thin Lizzy tracks at ‘Rock Band’ store

Pat BenatarHarmonix and MTV Games has announced seven new tracks for the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content including a three-pack from Irish hard rock band Thin Lizzy as well as songs from Nikko, Pat Benatar and The Pretenders.

Rock sensation Pat Benatar (pictured) has her Rock Band debut with the popular single “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.”

The Thin Lizzy three-pack features live recordings of “Boys are Back in Town,” “Jailbreak” and “Cowboy Song.” The 3-pack will become the first Thin Lizzy tracks to join the Rock Band music library, and are taken from Still Dangerous: Live At The Tower Theater Philadelphia 1977. This newly discovered live album, featuring the quintessential Lizzy lineup-Phil Lynott, lead vocals/bass; Scott Gorham, guitar; Brian Robertson, guitar; Brian Downey, drums-showcases the band at the height of its prodigious powers and will be released on Vh1 Classic Records on March 3, 2009.

This week’s lineup also includes “Precious” from British rock band The Pretenders, as well as “Break My Heart” and “Don’t Tell Me” from Nikko as featured in the movie Spectacular! The Pretenders’ songs “Brass in Pocket” and “Blue Christmas” were added as downloadable content last year.

The titles are all original master recordings and will be available starting today for Xbox 360 users and Thursday for PlayStation 3 users.
