Gaming, Music

The debut album from late electric blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble will be added to the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content. The weekly Rock Band music catalogue update also includes “New” from alternative rockers No Doubt.

The releases are available today on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the Wii Rock Band 2 in-game music store, and Thursday at PlayStation Network.

Stevie Ray Vaughan is often recognized as one of the most influential blues-rock guitarists in music history. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble’s debut album Texas Flood (1983) sold more than 500,000 copies and cracked the top 40 of the Billboard 200 charts within a year of its release. All ten songs featured on the album, including the popular studio cuts “Pride and Joy” and “Rude Mood,” will be available as downloadable Rock Band tracks individually or as a full album. Please see below for a full list of tracks.

The alternative rock pioneers of No Doubt make another appearance in the Rock Band music catalog with the addition of “New” from the band’s album Return of Saturn (2000). No Doubt launched onto Rock Band in December 2008 with the release of their 2003 album The Singles 1992-2003.

Wii owners can also look forward to three tracks from alternative band Jimmy Eat World including “Lucky Denver Mint” from the band’s 1999 album Clarity, “Futures” (Futures, 2004) and “Sweetness” from the band’s 2001 album Bleed American.
