As the final countdown continues leading up to the April 2 end of ROCK BAND DLC after an impressive run of more than five years, there’s a few more songs yet to hit the platform. This Tuesday brings a pair of hits from the 1980s, with the OINGO BOINGO classic “Weird Science” along with the cheesy TOTO hit “Rosanna” coming to the platform. Full details below…
On March 12th, American new wave band Oingo Boingo’s “Weird Science,” from the band’s fourth studio album, 1985’s Dead Man’s Party, will hit the Rock Band Music Store! Led by composer/vocalist Danny Elfman, Oingo Boingo wrote the track for the cult classic 1985 sci-fi comedy film of the same name.
Toto’s Grammy Award-winning single “Rosanna,” from the 1982 album Toto IV, will also be available! Both “Rosanna” and “Weird Science” will feature support for keyboards; an optional Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade will be available for “Weird Science” for an additional $0.99!

- Oingo Boingo – “Weird Science”
