Cambridge, Mass. – July 2, 2010 – Harmonix and MTV Games today announced that American rockers Creedence Clearwater Revival will make their Rock Band debut next week in the Rock Band Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™.

Although the band is known for their southern rock sound, CCR actually formed in the San Francisco area in the late 60s.
