The first DLC update for 2020.

This week’s downloadable content update for Rock Band 4 consists of a song by American rock trio Green Day and another by American rock band Weezer.

The following tracks will be available from 9th January:

  • Green Day – “Father of All… “
  • Weezer – “The End of the Game”

Both tracks are included with the Rock Band Rivals Season 15 Spotlight Pass and can also be purchased individually.

The descriptions below are taken from this week’s release notes:

“Father Of All…”, the recent Green Day single from the upcoming album of the same name, is a testament to the band’s enduring commitment to edgy, thought-provoking lyrics set to music anybody can groove to. Everybody is putting in the work this week with demanding vocals, drums, guitar, and bass alike. The track flows almost immediately into a steady groove so be prepared to rock from the jump! Smooth falsetto in one moment to a powerful belt throughout the chorus, Billie Joe Armstrong’s vocals are tight as ever. Bassists beware! Nuanced riffs and runs will keep you on your toes and will prove a real challenge to even the most dexterous of hands.

“The End of the Game” from Weezer has an undeniably classic rock sound with various notable influences from intro to outro. Released in anticipation of their upcoming tour, Weezer gives us all something to be excited about for when Van Weezer releases later this year. An epic guitar riff leads into a Weezer staple strumming pattern supported and encouraged by dramatic and emotional drums. The expert form crafting sets up a perfect opportunity for Rivers Cuomo to stretch his story-telling legs, with impactful lyrics in his trademark nearly conversational delivery. A casual sounding first verse sets the tone and continues to build into the bridge until the final chorus when the opening riff is revisited and leads the song into a final chorus where everyone can rock! Be prepared to bring the energy to do justice to this near instant party classic.
