I know, I'm behind on my Rock Band downloads. I only just got around to buying the new Weezer album, so I wouldn't have appreciated the three tracks of their Red album before anyway.
Rock Band DLC
These are really great choices for the game. All three songs are complex pieces but still retaining that classic Weezer sound. It gives each instrument something to do.
I've only had time to try them on guitar. Frankly I'm not that good at drums yet. Each track had a unique note pattern for me on Expert. After all these songs, I haven't felt repetition yet.
Another awesome bonus is the free download "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You" by Stephen Colbert. They could have charged me for this and I would have been all over it. Colbert's '80s pop spoof is a wonderful piece of character backstory.
As a Rock Band track, it's obviously short. They only wrote one verse, just enough to be a clip on the show. It's a simple series of long notes too, but it's just fun to have tracks like this and "Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld" in the game.
