|Its a blast from the past, in more ways than one, as a pack of 70s hits reaches Rock Band 4, including some hits from previous Rock Band discs!
First is Blue ster Cult, with their hit, (Dont Fear) The Reaper. The bands highest charting song, it is frequently placed on Greatest Song of All Time lists. Coming to DLC from the original Rock Band disc, its just as you remember. Guitar has an iconic line throughout, and a solo that starts spacey and gets intense real quick. Back during Rock Band, the drums were a gatekeeper in the Career Mode, building up as the song goes on to a very tough ending. The solo vocals chart the cowbell, as our song library has been down with a fever lately.
Following that is Kansas Carry On Wayward Son. This track comes from Rock Band 2, back in 2008! The song itself was Kansas first Top 40 hit, and endures to this day, having sold millions of digital copies to date. Incredibly difficult back in the day, the vocal chart hasnt been made any easier with the new inclusion of harmonies. The bass brings a strong showing, having some quick HOPO runs in the main riff. The guitar features several solos, all of them enough to break a combo.
We finish strong with Totos Hold the Line, a new addition to the franchise. One of the best singalongs of the 70s, it joins Africa and Rosanna to make a trilogy of Toto hits in Rock Band 4. Over the summer, we asked fans if they were on #TeamAfrica or #TeamHoldTheLine before releasing either, and a strong showing from each side has now led to BOTH songs appearing in Rock Band 4! Reaching #5 on the Hot 100 chart, it was just the beginning of Totos successful career. Its got everything you want in a Rock Band track; a ridiculously fun guitar solo, strong drums with some tough kicks, and a bunch of great vocal runs. Its the full package.
