Iconic Guardians of the Galaxy Song Takes Center Stage In Latest Rock Band Update

We don’t really talk much about Rock Band 4 that much lately, despite the fact that Harmonix has been continuously supporting the game since its release last year with weekly song updates, ranging from current pop hits to classic rock favorites.

But this week we’re making an exception, if only because of the songs that the developer is adding with its New Year’s Eve 2017 Pack – one of which will be a favorite to anyone that watched Marvel’s big-screen adaptation of Guardians of the Galaxy.

You may recall that film having a terrific soundtrack of older rock favorites, amongst them Blue Suede’s “Hooked On a Feeling”. Watch the trailer above if you need a reminder just how awesome it is. Well, the good news is that it’s being added to Rock Band 4 with this week’s update, meaning you can yell “OOGA SHAKA” at the top of your lungs with purpose. (Like you didn’t before, really.)

The company noted the song in its latest tweet, with the pack set to release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 late tomorrow night – so you’ll have plenty of time to warble. You can see the tweet below.

The update also includes a little bit of 80’s love, with Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ “Come On Eileen” joining the Rock Band line-up, alongside Europe’s “The Final Countdown,” which was previously released for Lego Rock Band a few years ago. For those that missed out on importing it before, you’ve got a chance to add it to your collection.


The songs will go for $1.99 apiece, and Harmonix will more than likely have a three-pack available going for $5.49, allowing you to save a little money to purchase other things, like food and fog machines. (Because you just can’t go wrong with fog machines, right? Unless you’re in a small apartment or something.)

Rock Band 4 is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
