Songs by Aerosmith, Van Halen & more to appear on “Rock Band VR” soundtrack

Credit: Ross HalfimThe Rock Band game franchise is delving into the virtual reality world with Rock Band VR, which takes you to the next level of feeling like a rock star — as much as you can while holding a plastic instrument.

Among the dozens of songs you’ll be able to play along to in the game are Aerosmith‘s “Walk This Way,” Van Halen‘s “Panama” and Bon Jovi‘s “Livin’ on a Prayer.”

Other songs appearing on the Rock Band VR soundtrack include popular tunes by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Foo Fighters, Oasis and Alice in Chains.

As a new trailer for the game explains, “Rock Band VR features new game play and scoring systems designed from the group up for VR. One way to think about it is, if traditional Rock Band is about nailing that perfect take for a studio recording, Rock Band VR is about the creative freedom that comes from a live performance.”

Rock Band VR will be released on Thursday, March 23.
