Van Halen’s music will be featured in Rock Band 4 for the first time in series history.


Harmonix has announced that Van Halen will be part of Rock Band 4’s track list. A first for the franchise, Van Halen’s Panama will be available on launch as a playable song, with other tracks to follow post-launch.

Van Halen was of course a much larger part of competing series Guitar Hero. The band even had its own spin-off game in Guitar Hero: Van Halen. Making the iconic band available in Rock Band is great news for those who plan to stick with the series.

You can find the full list of announced songs through here.

Rock Band 4 is out October 6 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Most of your existing DLCs will carry over, provided you stick to the same console family.
