It should be a good week for both classic rock and metal heads, as a four-pack of Pantera tracks and Peter Frampton’s iconic live version of “Do you Feel Like We Do” will make their way to the Rock Band DLC catalog. The Pantera tracks were off their early 1990’s albums Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven. The Frampton track needs no introduction, as it was the crown jewel off 1976’s Frampton Comes Alive! No word on whether Harmonix will be authorizing a new guitar effects pedal so you can recreate the voice box effect that is so distinct to the song.

Costs will be the standard $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts per track, $6.99/560 MS Pts/700 Wii Pts for the Pantera Pack 01 and $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts for the Pro Guitar/Bass upgrade.

  • Pantera – “I’m Broken”
  • Pantera – “Mouth for War”
  • Pantera – “Walk” X
  • Peter Frampton – “Do you Feel Like We Do (Live)”
