More rockin’ tracks announced for Rock Band 3

So the confirmation of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and the News in this October’s Rock Band 3 just isn’t enough for you? Well then, I feel that you’re unsatisfiable.

A few more songs however, have been announced by Harmonix and MTV Games, and will surely sway those on the fence about purchasing the upcoming music game. The obvious headliner is Tears for Fears with “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” a track that served as my personal anthem throughout high school, not only because it’s a great song, but because I had aspirations of world domination.

Other gems include Marilyn Manson’s “Beautiful People” and Def Leppard’s “Foolin’,” which is a poor song choice considering the band’s wide array of ignored classics. Where is “Rock of Ages,” Harmonix! Listed below are all the newly revealed tracks. If you’re losing track, don’t worry, we’ve included a list of previously announced songs as well after the break.
