Latest Rock Band 4 DLC Turns Back The Clock 15 Years

Posted on November 11, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Harmonix has revealed the brand new DLC that is now available on both the PlayStation Store and the Xbox Live Marketplace. These brand new tracks take us back to the early 2000s with the likes of GodSmack, Linkin Park (who at least are still producing new music, and in all honesty The Hunting Party felt like a return to form for them) and the now defunct AudioSlave.

All three of these bands pretty much defined my teenage years, I can remember listening to Linkin Park in the early years of high school. Honestly – the most interesting is probably AudioSlave due to the fact they somehow blended Chris Cornell’s belting voice with the funk infused sounds of the remnants of Rage Against The Machine.

God I feel so old now, and I’m only 29! .. Full list of songs below

New Songs Available In Rock Band 4:
Audioslave – Like A Stone
Godsmack – Awake
Linkin Park – Lying From You


Linkin Park Revealed As BlizzCon 2015 Closing Act

Posted on October 20, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Blizzard has announced that Linkin Park will be the playing live at BlizzCon 2015 which will run from November 6th and 7th at the Anaheim Convention Centre in sunny California.

BlizzCon allows attendees to go hands on with the latest products under development at Blizzard Entertainment including the recently revealed OverWatch beta and StarCraft II: Legacy of The Void among others. The convention also plays hosts to the World Championships for HearthStone, StarCraft II and Heroes of the Storm.

During their opening ceremonies Blizzard is also known for making some huge announcements so don’t be shocked if they give us all a sneak peek at what’s coming down the pipe during the show.

BlizzCon’s official website describes Linkin Park thusly:

The Grammy Award–winning rock band—and the biggest band on Facebook, with 63 million fans and counting—will be taking the stage the evening of Saturday, November 7, to provide an epic send-off for everyone at this year’s convention

If you aren’t able to make it to Anaheim for the festivities Blizzard is offering the Virtual Ticket which gets you access to multiple HD streams from the show floor as well as a whole pile of in-game goodies for Blizzard’s various products.

Here’s the trailer that Blizzard released to announce LP’s set at BlizzCon:

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter And Linkin Park Team Up

Posted on August 4, 2012 by Seung Lee


Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly Linkin Park, but Mike Shinoda, the man behind the popular band (and Fort Minor, a hip-hop side project), is composing the music for Electronic Arts’s upcoming game, Medal of Honor: Warfighter. This isn’t the first time that Shinoda has composed for others, however. He was behind The Raid: Redemption‘s soundtrack, which wasn’t too bad, if I do say so myself. EA’s main competitior, Activision, has called on Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails to compose Call of Duty: Black Ops II‘s theme song, and he wrote the tracks for the films, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.

In addition, Danger Close, the developer of Warfighter, and Digital Domain, a special effects studio, collaborated on a music video for Linkin Park’s song, Castle of Glass, from its recent Living Things album. The video will be finished in October, and it’ll mix live action footage with gameplay from the new Medal of Honor.
